We ran into Ydria at the center of Athens old town. We thought this might just be a tourist place but we were very hungry and wanted a quick bite. As it turned out, the foods are very well cooked and better than most other 4.5 star places we visited previously. The grilled octopus is tender and the drink is... More

Recently there seem to be very mixed reviews but we had a good meal with good service. We were there for dinner and I had the Kleftica which was done in an original way with lemon and tasted very nice but considering it was one of the more expensive things on the menu the serving was not particularly large. My... More

We were fished out from the street and should have known better when the woman talked about the best food with fresh food, giant plates and suggested what we should take. The portion was really small compared to other restaurants, the price a bit higher. But the worst was that the suvlaki was really not good I am by far... More

Personell does not seem to care and looks unfriendly. At some point they were shouting and arguing in the kitchen. Food is ok, not great.

We were on the way from Plaka to our hotel and ran into Ydria. We ordered chicken and lamp souvlaki with drinks and coffees. The food quality is very good and price is reasonable. The service is professional and pleasant.

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.
