Dinner and Show in Athens, Greece

Other than Tavern Kalokerinos, are there any other Dinners and Shows in Athens, Greece?

Where would I find out about entertainment options in Athens for a couple on vacation?

As a folkdancer myself, I find the sort of show a restaurant like this would put on, somewhat painful to experience. I find it disturbing to watch people dance if only going through the movements as a job, which is what restaurant shows can be. In my head I call these 'trained monkey' shows, no offense meant to anyone doing these jobs who does actually love doing them.

I have twice been to Dora Stratou dance theater, which while a 'Show' is making an attempt to portray the dance styles in a more authentic way and the dancers are enjoying the dancing. There are several sections of a few dances each - each with dances/costumes/music of different regions of Greece. Enjoy the variety!

http://www.grdance.org/en/ for information. The location is on the hill behind the acropolis. At least I've walked there both times from Plaka area. It seems like many of the people arrive from the other side perhaps by car or taxi? Check a map. - You could combine this with either an early or late dinner under the acropolis.

I went to another place 7 years ago that was recommended here for dinner show. I got there a bit too early, so the table they gave me they expected me to have left instead of eating very slow to wait for show. So they got mad at me for that. And then the beginning of the show that I stayed for was disappointing anyhow. I sulked back to where I was staying only to discover a guy at the taverna next door playing traditional music much more for the joy of it! And a shopkeeper a few doors down dancing to it in his doorway for himself. This was so much better.
