We ate an excellent dinner here. We arrived late, so the music was just ending, go earlier so you can enjoy the entertainment. The owner/chef offered us a fixed menu - fish, lamb, a vegetarian dish and wine - all of it was very flavorful and delicious.

One of the oldest taverns of the town, still untapped. You get served a chickpea soup, fava beans and some wine from the barrel. There are also other alternatives to eat I think but who asks for it! This is the place to break your fast after shopping at central market, having your coffee at Mokka while waiting for it... More

This unmarked and totally unchanged room gives one a glimpse of what eating out for the working classes must have been like 100 years ago. If the food was anything like Diporto then it must've been fantastic! Do not miss this place

This restaurant is not like usual restaurants. It's difficult to find and situated in a small cellar. But the atmosphere is absolutely beautiful. There are barrols of which you get the wine. Sometimes they are playing live acordeon. And - the most important thing - the traditional greek food cooked in a very small kitchen is very delicious. I can... More

Wonderful traditional taverna with excellent food that you choose from big pots in the kitchen. Retsina from huge barrels, crusty bread, generous portions, good service and excellent traditional Greek fare make this taverna a pleasure to support. There are only 8 tables and he closes when the food is finished. We will most certainly be back.

We visit Diporto every time we visit Athens, sometimes for many days in a row. It always offers the most tasty simple traditional food downtown (cuttlefish, fava, beans soup, probably the best chickpeas soup in the world, small fish, salad) and for 10 euros per person you can´t ask for more. But there is more: the ambience of joy and... More

I have lived in Athens for many years, and usually take visitors to this place for early lunch (it closes relatively early in the day, and serves people who have been working since before the crack of dawn), as I did again a few days ago, and thought to submit this review. None has been disappointed. You descend the big,... More

Diporto, means two doors. One to enter sober, the other to crawl out drunk. The wine was so good you could not resist. It was the meeting place for the market workers, and the joint for the drug people. That was before WWII. Today there are no drug adicts, only people from the market, intellectuals and tourists. Wine and food... More

This is as authentic as it gets. Food prepared from the day's fresh ingredients, ice cold water, fresh crusty bread, wine from the barrel, and local characters. This year we had bowls of chick peas, salad, a crushed bean dip (I think!), and freshly cooked sardines. More than enough for three for €28. With the bill came some melon, hearty... More

Staying in Omonia

Neighbourhood Profile
Omonia
Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its underground stalls, the square is now mostly frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a sense of old commercial Athens, especially at the picturesque meat, fish and vegetable markets some way beyond the City Hall. The blocks to the west of Athinas are home to many Chinese and South Asian traders, adding a multicultural atmosphere to what was until the late 1990s a very homogenous society.
