We were not staying in the area but wanted to explore the vicinity at night and had read good reviews about this place. We weren’t disappointed, the staff were attentive and knowledgable. We ordered the lamb cutlets and veal liver, yum!

Psirri / Gazi
Side-by-side neighbourhoods Psirri and Gazi provide
some of the city’s prime nightlife. The almost
claustrophobic streets of Psirri feature an
interesting blend of original small businesses with
the restaurants, cafés and bars that have recently
sprouted up. The central artery of Agion Anargiron
Street has lively places to eat or drink. Further
west, you can visit the peaceful ancient cemetery of
