If you want to pay for a view eat haloumi and rub elbows with other well heeled tourists of all nations you will enjoy. For our greek friends this was a "big deal" for us a much a do .... Food was over priced, just ok and it really is a tourist joint gussied up.

Had a family dinner in Strofi which provided a good view of the Acropolis in the evening. Food were nicely presented and service was superb. We had the meat platter which came with a good mix of grilled meat. Greek salad was fresh with cuts of feta cheese. Wonderful evening spent at Strofi.

We have been in Strofi with my friends on the night of New Year's Eve. The food was delicious, the wines they recommended as well. But above all, the Restaurant has a great view of Acropolis, you feel like it is so close that you may actually touch it :) the prices are not low but I think they are... More

We booked a dinner there so as to enjoy a quiet dinner and good view of the Parthenon at night. We shared a Greek salad and meat platter. It was too much for us like any other restaurants. The food was ok but a bit more expensive than the side walk restaurants. But you pay for the peace and quiet... More

This place was reccommended by the greeks. On our business dinner everybody was really satisfied with the fish dishes! For starter we asked the waiter to combine some local dishes and the kitchen really did they best - we enjoyed every plate, especially, the aubergine with the pita - the favourite one! Although the rooster with the tradicional pasta wasn't... More

If you should have one evening in Athens your dinner can be only Strofi. Great typical food, from fried zucchini with cheese to tzatzichi to moussaka. Main courses with goat, lamb, viel are really good and the chocolate cake an unforgettable experience. Price is definitively right for the quality and high level of service. And if you are so lucky... More

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
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 up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
