You can eat nice grills in this restaurant with a reasonable price. We ordered beef steak and it was well prepared and tasty.

We found this restaurant behind the big street. Nice dishes with reasonable price and friendly people. We enjoyed Greek dinner.

Everything was fine but the messy service. I went twice and the 2 waiters were running (literally) between tables. They should hire someone else. They make money.

Came here because of all the good reviews I read online. Didn't like it at first sight,kind of smelly and poor quality tables. They gave us a basket of bread even we didn't order. I didn't like the menu so my bf and I ordered one starter& one main each. The service was really slow, very tiny portion and taste... More

Please note it has moved down the road to behind the Pan Hotel. Menu choices are not extensive but fresh and well prepared but can sold out on some choice, such as fresh grilled fishes but the owner would just run to the sister restaurant Evgenia to get some. Run by a couple, look after their customers with plenty of... More

We have been to the sister restaurant around he corner a couple of times which is excellent (see my other reviews). This time it was full so we tried this place. The menu is the same and the food is very good: baked chickpeas, good fava and tasty fish. It is, however, a bit lacking in atmosphere. I'd go to... More

My wife and I have eaten at this little family restaurant near Syngama Square in Athens several times over the last 5 trips to Greece. This eatery is family run by Eugenia (the wife, and main cook during daytime hours) and Dimitros (owner and a waiter). I especially recommend lunch here since this is when Eugenia is in the kitchen... More

Like the reviews say, this is a small, basic place. What's missing from other reviews (or perhaps we were incredibly unlucky) is that the food isn't very good. Examples: poor quality olive oil on the table, chips a mixture of undercooked and soggy, meatballs dry and tasteless, gigantes and zucchini croquettes tasting of old oil. I had a really bad... More

This place is cozy and has beautiful tasting authentic food. Their hospitality is great and the staff make you feel special. I had the best Greek salad in my life and a prawn dish in tomato and feta sauce. I loved the advice of eating the prawns of "eat it like the Greeks do...with your hands". Will be back.

I visited the restaurant for lunch! The staff was very welcoming and helpful! They got English menu for tourists! It's close to remarkable places and the prices are reasonable

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
