The food was really good. I personally loved the fried feta cheese (the best one I had ever). The restaurant was well decorated. The staff was nice. Definitely a good address to go for good food in a pretty decor.

A legendary outlet that has been remodelled as a meta-taverna. It has assumed the character of a cure restaurant with a fine culinary list, some emphasis on lamb. Good starters. Essential wine list and cold beer. The outdoor installation is soothing but very white. For...More

The elongated Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first
modern Olympic Games in 1896, acts as grand gateway to
the otherwise purely Athenian neighborhood of
Pangrati. This area of typical small squares, busy
main roads and residential streets will give you a
clear sense of what living in this metropolis is like.
A walk up quiet Markou Mousourou Street on the west
side of the stadium will bring you past the First
