8 ladies had light meal and drinks at Ydria on Saturday and the lady hostess was really nice. The service however was slow and we had to remind the waiters to bring things ordered. Not cheap but nice enough.

The waiter was unfriendly and unhelpful, the food was on the verge of being bad. Overpriced and not a nice experience.

We were enticed to visit this restaurant by a very friendly and cheerful hostess outside, and there were quite a few locals eating as well who seemed to be regulars. The service was very good, with a tasty chicken soup with a very generous serving of chicken and a nice lamb with lemon sauce as well. Whilst the pastitsio was... More

A very nice place located in Plaka, 2 minutes away from monastiraki metro stop. Menu is nice, only regret is that some ingredients, especially sea food aren't fresh but frozen. Besides that, food is served nicely, the staff is very polite and efficient and the food is good. A fine address

Friendly atmosphere and tasty food. So TripAdvisor wants me to say something else that is a minimum of 100 characters.

We only wanted a quick lunch today - well it slowed down once here to enjoy every mouthful. Alfa beer and hot mezes. A very busy taverna with wonderful service.

Attracted to this place by the big bottle of Aperol outside and they do mix a mean Spritz (City Zen is the best). Food was great. I had the veggie risotto which was nice. The kids had Gyros and Souvlaki, and my wife had a spinach-cheese pie. I also had a glass of the tasty but rather odd blue wine... More

This square with several restaurants beckoning you to come in is a welcome respite from sight seeing. Got the typical Greek dishes and loved them. Sitting outside is the way to go. On a nice day!

We were greeted on arrival and taken to a table. The meal was lovely and plentiful. It was presented nicely and served to us by a friendly waiter. We were so impressed by the standard of the meal and the price that we returned the following evening. Once again, we were very happy with our meal. In the future, when... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
