The food was delicious and the service friendly and efficient. Opppsite the museum of the Acropolis, very convenient for those who want to visit it. A restaurant that can become much better with some small changes in the decor.

We had a breakfast here for two, which was more than enough and very tasty, except the sausage. Dear restaurant, please change the sausage in the full breakfast as it was disappointing.

The staff is amazing. Their soup is good. Its a bar to chill and hang out after a day of site-seeing and touristic stuff. The staff are so nice and friendly.

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
