Very close to the Acropolis Museum on a with wall-to-wall restaurants. The Magna Graecia salad is excellent as is the calamari with vegetables. One person ordered the “Melted Avacado Salad” which had raw salmon, probably not a good idea on a hot day. I also...More

We ate at God's 3 times during our stay and we were never disappointed!! We felt totally at home, and the food was amazing. And every time we walked by we heard "Welcome my friends". We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the

Description
Greeks tend to associate pleasure with homemade food, quality wine and good company. That’s why they are always searching for a special hangout that combines the intimate atmosphere of home with their mama’s kitchen aromas. At the traditional, family-owned Gods’ Restaurant, you will feel right at home with the rustic and hospitable atmosphere, but it is the father who heads the kitchen here. With 40 years of cooking experience, he works alongside the executive chef to create authentic Greek recipes, like the traditional finger-licking dolmades (meat and rice wrapped in grapevine leaves with egg and lemon sauce), the famous Lamb "kleftiko" in the pot or the ancient Greek recipe, fried feta cheese wrapped in phyllo pastry with honey and black sesame. In Gods’ Restaurant your culinary experience won’t be anything other than divine.
