Went there after a long walk to the Acropolis, we were welcomed with a smile the food was great, very good service, and laid back atmosphere. We were given two shots of some Greek liqueur on the house when we asked for the bill.

We had a very nice evening meal here. The outdoor tables are in a nice setting and the food was very good and reasonably priced.

Went here twice during my trip to Athens after visiting 7 years ago! Food was as good if not better and service great! The filtered water was a nice touch and service not too pushy! The baklava and cheesecake are both to die for!

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
