“Excellent seafood and location”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

They have great seafood dishes where some of them are even fresh (sea bream fish in my case). The location is excellent (maybe begining of Plaka), there are several cheap dishes (in general one can eat with 10 - 15 euros) and the staff is very nice. Don't miss the Tzatziki sauce with pita bread :-P
Needless to say, you don't need to pay for service (actually I didn't need to pay for it anywhere in Athens).

“Great service and great food”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

Came here with my friend, had the carbonara pasta and my friend had a Greek kebab - the food was very good and the service was friendly and gracious. The staff really want to make you feel welcome. Lovely to sit outside on an evening.

“Good food, good price”
Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

We've eaten dinner here twice now in one week, and were perfectly happy both times. The restaurant is situated in a good location for people watching if you're sitting outside. The waiting staff are pleasant and friendly, willing to spend a few minutes chatting when time permits. We've eaten various salads, the moussaka and two different pasta dishes, and drunk the house red wine. This is a dependable, no-nonsense restaurant we'd be willing to visit anytime.

“Greek delicacies”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

Having Greek origins I am well aware of the delicious Greek cuisine, therefore I am very strict when tasting Greek dishes in a restaurant. ''Vyzantino'' is one of those places that exceed my expectations and meet my high standards.
It is a typical traditional tavern with nothing really unique in terms of appearance. But what makes it stand out is the mouth-watering food it makes.
If you are looking for the joy of home-cooked food, you should definitely dine there. Its menu offers a wide range of Greek dishes (so wide that you have a hard time choosing what to have!). You can devour plenty of appetizers, loads of cooked, roasted and grilled dishes, a variety of meat, fish and sea food. You should definitely taste veal with eggplants, lamb with lemon sauce and chicken oregano; they are simply heavenly!
Even though the tavern is a tourist-magnet, the prices are reasonable. The menu is in 13 languages, which shows consideration for the visitors. And is there a better thing than enjoying delicious food in the heart of the Old Town of Athens?

“Simple but good !”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

As so many popular areas in the world Plaka has many tourist traps and below standard restaurants. In Greece there is a rather simple way to find out whether you are in a real restaurant, ask for a traditional Greek dish. Once that is good you can be sure that the other dishes are good too. Vizantino made the test. Don't expect a sophisticated meal but you won't be disappointed with what they have to offer. Friendly staff too..
