A covered canopy greeted us as walked from downtown hotels. We sat outdoors under the canopy. There were 18 of us and the food had been pre-ordered. We sampled plate after plate of delicious food. We barely had room for dessert, however, when the multiple desserts arrived they were impossible to not sample ... and enjoy.

I accompanied a family of six to this cafe which is in a very average setting. What draws one to this location is the grandeur of the Zappeio Mansion and peace offered by the the adjacent National Garden. Unfortunately, the solitude was ruined by the cacophony of rude people concerned solely with the ability to shout loudest. This compounded with... More

Visited on a Sunday afternoon. Th place is fantastic, with great views, however the service was slow, we returned dishes and the overall quality of food was rather poor.

I've only ever been here for drinks, and judging by the food reviews here that's maybe a good choice. However, for a relaxing drink on a warm, Athenian evening there's nowhere better. Lovely situation in the National Garden just by the open-air cinema - cooling breezes, soft, warm air and subdued lighting. They do a non-alcoholic cucumber drink which is... More

Nice place to rest after the long walk, but it si too expensive. I paid 6 euros for one juice, but since whole Athens lives from tourists it is not surprising.

After walking around hot, lost and befuddled it was wonderful to find such a spot. There was shade, cool drinks and lovely local food. The service was erratic but there was no way we were leaving!

It is placed next to the national garden of Athens and also next to Zappeio Megaron, which is one of the most beautiful buildings in Greece. If you decide to stay outside you will enjoy the view and also be able to see Acropolis. The service is very nice and the place very quite and relaxing. Although it is not... More

We were here with some friends (in total 6 adults) and tried several of their dishes: starters, main courses, and lots of white wine. The bill came around 300 Euros, which is a bit steep for Athens. The food had flashes of brilliance. For example, the risotto was nice and so was the fried feta cheese. But, all in all,... More

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
