We made a reservation without knowing that the restaurant had moved next door, in a place one third of the previous building. At first we were not thrilled with this, since we expected the familiar and very good place we already knew. We were pleasantly surprised though, because we had the familiar quality with a much more personal approach. Very... More

Very nice calm atmosphere in the center of kolonaki square! A recommendation of the kiosk man! We were happy as we first saw the nice property that is located. We sat in the outdoor area, the waiter was pleasant and the service good enough! The food arrived on time and it was really delicious! The salad was fresh and the... More

We choose to try Prytanion after we saw the excellent presentation of the plates, while passing by, but the presentation had nothing to do with the taste of the food. The food was at least average as well as the service, except from a young man who was always ready to help us. However, if you love salads go and... More

I have been there twice, both times for dinner. Although the dishes are delicious, I don't like the atmosphere at all. It is cold and impersonal for my taste. The waiters are indifferent, never smiling, almost snobbish. If I had to recommend the place, that would only be for professional meals. The prices are high but this is expected in... More

I visited the restaurant after a long meeting with the clients late at night, around 12.30pm. The food was excellent, especially the veal, while the salads were not anything special. The staff was friendly and eager to help us choose. The environment was nice and the music at an excellent volume. The price was quite high, but as expected for... More

Centrally located in Kolonaki area it's the safe place for lunch or to dine, either you are there with the family, with friends or for business. The menu is vast (somehow wondering if all these plates offered can be cooked at the time) but doubts go away when the food comes! Wonderful salads (from classic greek to exotic italian); sea-food...

We walked up to restaurant at 2 pm, and asked if we could sit in table being cleared (nice table against the wall). Host came out and with a lot of attitude said no it was reserved, and showed us an inferior table, which was fine except for his attitude and dismissive nature, so when I asked my partner if...

The food at Prytaneion has been consistently good, at least for the past 10 years that I have been visiting the place. The menu displays a great variety of dishes for all tastes and preferences and what is remarkable is that whether you choose pasta or steak, they are equally good as if you were at an Italian restaurant or...

An italian restaurant that serves bought pasta instead of home made, very disappointing. It is to expensive for the food they provide and the waiters attitude was not the best.

Prat anion is a wonderful Italian restaurant in the Kolonaki district of Athens. It's located in an alley with other eateries so you may dine either inside or out. The service was professional and the menu covered both pasta favorites, fish and steak. They also do wonderful oysters and other cold seafood. Priced as any nice restaurant- highly recommend.

Staying in Kolonaki / Lykavittos

Neighbourhood Profile
Kolonaki / Lykavittos
By far the ritziest neighbourhood in town, Kolonaki is home to most of the chic boutiques and designer label stores. Here, the wealthy say no to austerity by dressing in their finest and spending hours in the trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most expensive coffee in Europe. The area also contains a couple of notable museums and cultural institutions, which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper reaches of Kolonaki transition into Lykavittos Hill, the highest point in central Athens. Climb the paths through its wooded slopes to the tiny chapel at the top, from where you are rewarded with stunning views across the Acropolis to the sea and even the mountains of the Peloponnese on a clear day. The wooden amphitheater up here hosts regular concerts during the summer.
