The food at Liondi was delicious and the chef treated us like family. I can't recommend this place enough. We went back several times during our stay in Athens and we will certainly return in the future.

Nice place, tasty food, very close to Acropoles. The staff team is very kind and we received the food really fast. We ate only greek food and did not regret it in the end. We also get a delicious desert as a gift, also tasty.

The food is incredible here and the prices are even better! We had the pastitsio and pork gyro platter and they were each enough to split! 9 euro each! Definitely come here for any meal!

We loved it! No seriously, really nice atmosphere close to the Acropolis. The best thing aside the amazing food, if you ask me? The kind staff working in this restaurant to make this amazing food. Like eating mama’s homemade Greek Cousine. Simply delicious.

We visited Liondi for lunch and we couldn’t be happier. The hospitality was amazing (Greek style!) and the food and wine authentic, delicious and well priced. Highly recommended!

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

Most restaurants are happy to accommodate now-a-days, if you let them know what your needs are. My husband has a sensitivity to nuts, also -- and they were very gracious about it. No baklava! Their English is excellent... More
