Make sure to reserve a table on the rooftop! The view was to die for, the most amazing back drop for dinner! The food was very good, a great way to end our whirlwind tour of Athens!

The food and service at this restaurant were both very good. We had a roof top table which gave us a spectacular view of the parthenon. If you go there be sure to reserve a roof top table.

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
