I visited this restaurant with a few friends for dinner, in search of a delightful Greek style feed as you do when travelling. This restaurant not only delivered on this front, but also had some of the best service I have seen. Amongst all the dishes we ordered, they were all absolute standouts: the lithos salad had the most delightful dressing, the breads/tapenades and dips so very good, fish perfectly cooked, mussels absolutely TO DIE FOR!! (best sauce). The moussaka was also delicious! All in all, an absolute delight of a meal! For us the meal was really quite affordable given we had just travelled from elsewhere in Europe but I would not be a very good gauge of this haha. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough, and in the back of my mind thought of moving to Athens just to have it again and again :)

This is a very nice restaurant in the Psyri area, a little further down from the touristy Plaka. We had an excellent grilled whole fish, served with beetroot, cut corn and green beans. We also ordered a grilled vegetable salad with parmesan and balsamic and a fried small sardines in season. Wow, food was so good but prices were so reasonable. Excellent waiters with superb service.

We absolutely loved everything about this restaurant. We even went here twice during our holiday! The staff are so polite and really care about whether you are happy with the food. The bread and olive tapenade at the beginning is lovely, starters are great too (but be careful here as the mains are a huge portion!). The main meals were so good and we were overwhelmed with choice. The glasses of wine are large for the price too and then a free dessert is given at the end. We really enjoyed our time here.

We stayed in the hotel above Lithos resatraunt owned by the same family. It is called as Artdecoathens. I know this is a review for the restaurant. But we will be doing a disservice if we do not mention the accommodation. Great place to stay and visit Athens.

Stavros and family were excellent hosts both for the room and the restaurant. If you stay in their hotel then you also get 10% discount in Lithos restaurant.

They all try hard to do a good job.
