Description: Arcadia restaurant on Makrygianni street, right opposite the Acropolis Museum, is a popular destination for good food since 1977. Traditional Greek recipes from the region of Arcadia in the Peloponnese and not only, prepared with fresh local products, extra virgin olive oil and fresh local meat. The menu varies depending on the season and includes specialties such as goat with oregano, veal cooked in a special ceramic pot with goats cheese, kleftiko lamb and cockerel in wine with thick pasta. You can also taste delicious veal patties, grilled lamb ribs, steaks, pork or chicken marinated souvlaki and fresh fried potatoes, home made pasta and a variety of fish. Open for lunch and dinner and during the summer season also for breakfast.

Located right next to the acropolis museum in a very touristy area, we were pleasantly surprised that this wasn't a tourist trap and the tripadvisor reviews are well deserved!

The staff were all extremely friendly and all spoke English really well. The food was delivered promptly and the fish we ordered was expertly filleted right on the table, which was a nice touch.

We had two dishes from the specialty menu, the sea bream mentioned earlier was perfectly cooked and seasoned, while the antique style moussaka was definitely the star of the night.

Not cheap, but doesn't leave you feeling like you were taken advantage of. Great dinner!

After having such a bad time searching for places to eat as we traveled through Europe, it was nice to see that using trip advisors really does work.

The big feller out front said "I saw you eat next door last night. You've gotta give us a chance - our food's great." so we did and we were glad we did. The traditional Greek food was indeed great (my first taste of Goat) with a varied menu and at a mid-range cost which didn't shock the wallet. There was some very entertaining off-the-cuff singing and dancing which helped to make it an excellent experience

Ate here twice during our trip. Food is really nice and the service is excellent (attentive and responsive). Overall would definitely recommend as it is right next to the entrance of the acropolis and acropolis museum.
