Description: Three brothers with extensive business activities decided to join their forces and their passion and created an amazing tavern! A unique and very welcoming place with delicious traditional Greek cuisine that you will simply adore! Homemade food, delicious seafood and appetizers, along with a variety of grilled meat is what you will taste in "Dyo Dekares i Oka", as this cozy tavern is called. Its name means "two dimes an oca", with oca being an old mass measurement unit, and will take you to the past. The flavours will do the same, as they resemble of an old, experienced Greek housewife's way of cooking. Pure ingredients, rich spices and lots of imagination are shuffled daily to offer you original culinary experiences. As for the space? Simple, cozy and welcoming. With beautiful decorative details that will make you feel intimate, like if you ate at a friend's house. At the evening, live music makes the mood take off. People become one... they celebrate, they dance and sing, as only Greeks know how to do! Create memories and take them back home when you leave this country... Many smiles, kindness, delicious flavours and affordable prices are what you should expect from your visit at "Dyo Dekares i Oka" restaurant. And we're sure that if you ever come back in Greece, then you'll definitely come back to the tavern as well.

We visited Dio our first night in Athens following the suggestions of our host from air b&b. Cozy place, but most important really home made style food. Unfortunately some dishes have finished (if you want the full selection do not go as late as we did, around 10pm..) However we had a good selection to choose from. Very fresh food.. Excellent price quality ratio. Friendly and timely service. With house wine, we spent 38€ for fish and vegetables

This restaurant was very good, especially the tzatziki and moussaka. They were very busy with only one server so we did have to wait quite a while to get our check.

This is the kind of restaurant that makes you come back year after year. The food was excellent and innovative. They managed to keep their recipes and decorations traditional but with a bit of twist. The fish was very fresh and the chicken burger excellent with a sos that made you ask for more. Furthermore, the fresh bread is so yummy you will not be able to stop eating it! This is a family business and the owners are extremely friendly, helpful and full of joy :) 10/10 from me and i definitely recommend stopping by this place if you happen to come across it !
