This is the second time we ate here and found the food a great experience. Sat outside, listened to their music (there were also dancers the first time), watched some spontaneous Greeks get up and dance several times. A nice way to end out vacation.

Fantastic atmosphere, very helpful waiters and great music. The restaurant has a big garden in different levels with view to the orchestra. The singers were great with excellent voices!!!!

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
