The restaurant is extremely convenient for tourists staying and sightseeing around the Acropolis area. We had dinner there and the food was pretty good. The zucchini fritters were alright, nothing special and the house red was not drinkable but the antique style moussaka was very...More

We visited this place twice and enjoyed everything we ordered. The grilled feta cheese is a must to try and also their salads. Don't miss their Greek pancakes as well 😋

We fell in love with Arcadia, so much so we came back the next night. The staff made it so special with their recommendations and service. Admittedly it was our first night in Greece, but it ended up being our benchmark for the entire trip....More

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

with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
