Situated in busy square in the Plaka district of Athens, this restaurant has a lot of local competition. The food and service make it stand out. The vegetable soup is deserving of a mention and do finish with the baclava.

We came for the moussaka which was pretty average. It obviously wasn't freshly prepared, but just reheated. Prices were okay. Portions aren't too big. Service is not exactly unfriendly, but certainly not friendly either. We wouldn't eat here again.

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
