Good food and great, personal service, I would definitely recommend ! We truly felt welcome. I think it may have been the owner who was serving us, and he gave us a complimentary lemon drink because it was a hot day.

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
