The whole area around Monastiraki is a tourist trap. Nonetheless when you turn into Adrianou street direction Agora you can find some decent restaurants. Though this restaurant is pretty the food was tasty and well prepared (a mixed fish platter). Service is friendly and priced as reasonable (45 Euro for 2 including wine).

Lucky choice and we were after 2 disappointing experiences in Athens happy with the food, service very nice as usual, reasonable prices, nice place with a nice view and we got a desert and a nice sweet liquer as a compliment. The best Greek salad so far in Athens.

Its a crowded place, service was friendly. The food was ok, more expensive comparing the other restaurants. Maybe its focus more on tourists. The green salad and the mix platter was ok. The best was the potatosalad.

A stroll down the streets of Plaka you come across this gem of a restaurant. The greeter was greeting you and helping you. Not telling you to eat there but actually helpful and welcoming. You sit down under the beautiful lit up acropolis. The food was a delight. My wife is still saying how delicious the moussaka was. I am... More

Good spot under the Acropolis and next to the ancient Agora. You can relax drinking coffee, beer or having a late lunch while the sun moves to west. A bit expensive and average plates but good service and .... great "karidopitta".

We had an enjoyable dinner on the terrasse on Diodos which boasts of a very nice view overlooking the Acropolis. We ordered several dishes and our favourite was the grilled squid. Our waiter offered us a house wine mixed with Amaretto and cinammon , a genuine delight! A must try near Monastiraki.

Thank NA N

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighbourhood Profile
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized streets surround the remains of both the Greek and Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.
