A secluded find with great warm food on a cold night. The walk up was a little shaky as the path is uneven but the owner was welcoming and offered us a seat inside straight away. There were ceiling heaters to keep its patrons warm.

In the nicest locations of Plaka(Athens historical center) where you can get some good Greek traditional sweets and coffee, Recommended from Monday to Friday, very busy during the weekend and it's almost impossible to find a place to seat.

I stopped by for lunch with family whilst walking around Athens. It is located in a lovely quiet street close to the Acropolis. I had the Klepsidra salad which was beautiful - a cut above the average salad. Prices were reasonable.

Coming down from Acropolis to Plaka we were surprised to find a beautiful place where we ate a fresh and tasteful seabass and were happy with services of George. Very quiet, peaceful place worth to go.

We have been here many times when in Athens. Although not far away from the crowds in the Plaka, this is a Nice place for a coffee or a light meal.

Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a
difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the
Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized
streets surround the remains of both the Greek and
Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is
where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the
tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki
Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street
