We had the Greek platter for 2 and everything was excellent; baby lamb, stuffed pepper and tomato, moussaka, chicken gyro and baked feta with the most flavorful tomatoes. Enough food for at least 3. Elena was very accommodating and makes sure you have everything you need. It's beside the Acropolis Museum near the metro station and great also for people watching. Reservations are helpful in the summer.

On our one night in Athens, Liondi made for the best family style Greek dinner! The head chef personally delivered and recommended our dishes. Highlights were the sea bass and the classic Greek salad. Local wine and fresh cuisine--not much better than this!

First things first: to eat in front of a famous monument, it´s normally a recipe for a disaster! But NOT in Liondi! Friendly staff (the chef came personally in our table ask if everything was in order), amazing owner and really good food for a excellent price. We had salad, chicken (brined in lemmon), tzatziki and some start that I honestly don't remember now, but I am sure that was really good. Our desert (on the house) was delicious as well. You know, if in Greece you treat people nice, they gonna treat you even better! They going to make you feel extremely comfortable and they gonna offer you the best! So, don´t be shy: smile to the waitress, talk with the owner and you will be surprised with an amazing meal.

Liondi certainly will do it for you!

The service is outstanding and food as well. Waters/tress are very friendly. Try the mousaka. Place is close to the Acropolis metro station
