We chose this place as it was said in other reviews that it was frequented by locals. When we arrived for dinner it was mid week and there were very few tables taken. The service is ok and the food is good. I think there would be many places serving similar meny and food.

Went with very large party with a set meal which may have put cooks under stress but food bland. Waiters did ask how we were but not really friendly.

This is one of the Top Food places in Athens to my opinion. Want to experience real Greek food? Go here. Yet the atmosphere, interier and the views will keep you in a good mood. You are served always with a smile, there's good choice of dishes and wines. Do not take a risk, visit this place to be satisfied... More

Small taverna in Plaka surrounded by other tavernas but what makes this one stand out is the fact it's full of Greek families as well as tourists and it's been serving good and authentic Greek fare since 1898. Well worth a visit!

This restaurant is located in the Plaka area, which is beautiful but very touristic. The prices at most places are higher than in the rest of the Athens, even if the quality and taste of the food is lower. We had decent lunch, but it wasn't anything special. Will try another place next time. Service was very friendly.

We visited this restaurant several times. It is bellow Acropolis " Parthenon " During the summer you can sit outside and enjoy the view of Acropolis and the Plaka which is the old town of Athens. The food is great and the prices are logical.

Really good service and value for money. The octopus salad was tasty as was the Kamari's. There was no Retsina from the barrel, but the bottled Retsina was walked excellent. It would seem Retsina from a barrel n central Athens is a rarity these days. A pity.

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
