In Athens with a couple of grad school friends. We found this restaurant listed on a free airport map and decided to try it. It's on a side street within the "tourist" area in Plaka. If you're looking for super-cheap eats, this is not for you. If you want a relaxing nightlife atmosphere with great food served by hospitable waitstaff,... More

Lovely restaurant in the plaka district. Service was very attentive and helpful. Fresh salads, and imaginative menu that will have the foodie in you jumping for joy. Generous portion of Foie gras accompanied by a lovely sauce. Wish I had another night so we could have dined again!

The title is not meant to be negative as on the menu you won't find the typical Greek dishes. However, the choices we made; kebab and cheek were very well cooked. Also the accompanying red wine was very drinkable. Recommendable!

I can't adequately describe how fantastic the food was here. I don't think you could go wrong with any order. Loved the modern twists on Greek classics. Service was great and price was reasonable. Only criticism would be that they only offered bottled water, rather than tap. This didn't really matter once we started eating the food though! Incredible!

Among the best meals I had in 2016: Mono restaurant was truly a culinary highlight and a new addition to a short list of "must eat at" restaurants in Athens that's bursting at the seams. A modern, elegant ambiance and outstanding service, complement the innovative and delectable dishes -- modern reinventions on greek classics -- thoughtfully paired with lesser known... More

One of the best dinners i ever had - strongly suggested someone should try the experience, although quite expensive.

Stopped her with partner to meet friends for dinner and have to say that the service and food were absolutely wonderful! Loved the local Greek wine and duck appetizer!

Simple, elegant modern design. Knowledgeable and helpful staff. Fresh local and organic only ingredients. Artful presentation of modern interpretation of Greek cuisine. Good wine selection (ask to chill your reds). Definitely a place not to missed.

Relaxing environment. The food is so good I ordered a second dish of seared tuna. Along with the salad the deserts are amazing. Nice dinner setting for the family or couples, reasonable prices and great service. If you are looking to try something other than Gyros or kebobs, this is the place.

Mono has pedigree - the chef knows how to cook and other than the large international and more expensive hotels, this is a chance to experience non-Taverna cooking finally in Plaka. Taverna cooking is good sometimes but the menu never changes and the chef-owner of Mono cooks his own style and with great flavours. We ate there twice for dinners... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
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 number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
