I was surprised that Arcadia was such an amazing spot in a tourist area to a moderate price. Customer service was great, family of 5 paid along with appetizers 101.35. Great price for the quality of food, food size.

The food at this restaurant was wonderful. I took the pork knuckle whilst my wife had red porgy fish. The food was cooked to perfection and the service was great too. The waiting staff were knowledgeable and provided good recommendations

The restaurant is situated at a very touristic area near Acropolis. Usually these touristic places do not offer good quality, but in this occasion everything was excellent. Yes, it was a bit overpriced, but that was expected. The pedesterian road is very nice, and the...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
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the

I don’t know since we didn’t discuss the topic. The great majority of Greeks are Greek Orthodox and pork is not necessarily a menu item. They do serve seafood however...hope that addresses your concern!
