I have been there with my family (five people, all adults). The owner, when we enterd, has been quite kind and helpful, offering us the possibility of locating into another close restaurant also belonging to him. We finally decided to stay at Eris as more modern and nice looking. First of all music was so loud it was almost impossible... More

I ordered Eris's salad, it was full of bread. The mushroom risotto was good, musakka was tasty. But the service was very slow and she needed to smile once in a while.

Found this cafe after doing Acropolis. Food and service was ok. A little expensive for what you got but probably paying for the location. Would recommend

It was cold outside, so we went inside of Eris. The food was very good, although overpriced. The seating inside was very comforatble, which is unique for Plaka. However, the service was awful. The waitress relectantly waited on us and was impossible to find during the meal. Honey for the bread? Maybe. More hot water for tea, not for you.... More

My friends and I spotted this place on our way to the Acropolis and immediately decided that this is where we will be having dinner later that day. We went before 7pm and were lucky to get a table as within half an hour the place was full. The interior is modern, light, welcoming, with candles on every table. We... More

Very nice food, taste very good and for sure I recommend it. Can improve on the service. What was not nice.... They only accept cash and the worst .....they reject to give you a real bill. 4 points due the good food.

The position of the restaurant is very nice with direct view to Acropolis. I have chosen this restaurant because the interior was modern and nicer in comparison with other touristic restaurants around. As a couvert they serve warm bread with olive paste and this was good. I ordered moussaka and it was just OK, made for tourists. Vine and coffee... More

We were attracted to this Plaka pavement side café due to the absence of hawkers (evidently these guys don't even to fake pleasantness!) and the bright and cheery appearance of the place. That's about where the good comments end. The waiter was brusque. We weren't allowed to order bread with olives on it's own, it could only be bought as... More

We had breakfast here waiting to get into our hotel room. They make wonderful capuccino and an excellent omelette.

Would not recommend!!! Waiter and staff was unfriendly and cold. While we waited for our food we were given bread in a white linen that was dirty. See photos for reference. We should have taken it as indication of how clean the restaurant was. We thought about leaving but felt awful for ordering and leaving since it's been a while... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
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 number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
