Ok old fashioned restaurant. Good food selection although some choices were unavailable. Food quality was average. Service was average at best. Location quite good. Pricing ok for the touristy Plaka area. Little to get excited about, but perfectly acceptable.

On a four-day visit to Athens we decided to visit a favourite restaurant, Eliai in the Plaka, from a previous stay. We were surprised to find this restaurant was deserted at 7.30pm, so we ambled off to eat elsewhere. Just yards away, we were pounced...More

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
