Took Rick Steve's recommendation to eat here. Was treated to complementary ouzo (though it was hard to drink...it was great to try). Highly recommended....walk around until you find it!

Live music with great food and atmosphere. Service also very attentive. A beautiful terraced dinning area in the Plaka area.

Nice place on the hill away from the masses. Bread was lovely and fresh, crunchy crust with soft inside. Provided at no request by costs 1€ pp. However, moussaka and chicken souvlaki complete fail. Could hardly finish it.

Went with a friend. Unfortunately we were seated indoor with a huge school group. A water poured water on our plate and barely apologized. Horta contained small stones. All the else was just average. Avoid of you can.

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
