I spent a beautiful evening in this restaurant having company over to dinner. All the food options are healthy and plenty of it. Meat and fish and typical dish from their own country for the occasion.

Amazing food and even better staff. Thasos and the rest of the waiters were so nice and the food was outstanding. Most enjoyable restaurant I have visited in Athens. 10/10. If you come to Athens and do not come to Arcadia, you are wrong. Eat here.

While this place may look like a standard tourist trap, it's not. The food is very typical Greek food, meaning that it is very good. But the people there are what put this place on top. You'll likely be greeted by Tasos on the sidewalk, who's offer of 2 drinks on the house got us in the door. Then you'll... 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.
