We stumbled across the restaurant & chose to stop to grab lunch. Best food in our 10 day trip in Greece. The service wasn't pushy, the prices reasonable & the food fantastic. Very traditional away from the tourist traps. Very highly recommended!

We ate delicious food here. The plates were aboundant and well presented. The staff was very kindly and suggested us the dishes according to our needs. Good price-quality relationship. This restaurant is not the tipical touristic attraction. I suggest highly.

This is located around the corner from the Ancient Agora. We sat outside in the quiet street. The food was really delicious, service was friendly and the price was good value.

We'd had lots of nice mousaka and souvlaki during our trip round Greece, but this restaurant was one of the best as they had some interesting alternatives like pork stuffed with vegetables and meatballs in tomato sauce - which were both excellent. Really friendly staff...More

Really a nice place! Good food and nice people! Only downside was the number of cats around ... especially those marking their territory.

The food is sublime and the waitstaff outstanding. Say hello to John the host. He remembered my name when I came back the second time in as many days. The chef came out to greet us. She cooked Greek food straight from the heart. No...More

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
