I still think about the meatballs in tomato sauce. Just incredible. in terms of quality/price, it was my favorite meal in Greece. We got the Greek salad, saganaki, fried zucchini balls, and meatballs in tomato sauce. All were excellent, but the meatballs were the standout. So sweet and tender.

It's a little off the beaten path, but worth seeking out.

This place is a very good example of how I can forgive very basic food and wine for the service that's really great. The waiter was smiling, speaking to us and joking all the time and finally earned good tips from us. Atmosphere in general was very good, who said Greece is suffering economic crisis? I would definitely return even if not for food but for drinks and to communicate with their nice staff.

Went here twice. Lovely food. A lot of the food is frozen but there are some unusual dishes and it did the best Fava i tasted in Greece. Excellent and very cheap wine too

We tried tonight this restaurant as it has Fantastic review on trip advisor but it is nothing spécial for sure it is cheap. But the food has nothing special. It is good but we had much better Greek food before
The meat balls can probably pleased an American but sure not a French
I will say this a good cheap average restaurant. I will not return

What a find, hidden down a cobbled side street in the Plaka district of Athens, this small and charming restaurant serves up the most amazing food. The flavours are fabulous and everything tastes as if it has been freshly and carefully prepared and seasoned. The wine, which it is claimed is exclusive to To Kafeneio is also special. Sit round an open log fire and just melt into the atmosphere as you tuck into some of the finest food you will find in Athens. A special place. Seems full of locals and not many tourists - other than us.
