In the old town of Plaka this restaurant is the best local food anyone can find. Right at the ancient greek parths the restaurant which has kept the old tavern style is really unique. Once in Athens i'ts worth visiting.

Service was warm and made us feel welcome. Felt like it was our home. The view was great and the atmosphere zen-like. The lamb and veel were excellent choices, looking forward to tasting the pork with wine and beer next time. Prices are reasonable....

It has outside and inside dining area. It was raining that night so we had no choice. Female server is not comfortable speaking in English. I had the stuffed squid which was fine. Service is a bit slow. Place was recommended by our hotel staff....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
