It can be daunting trying to get fed in a city where your grasp of the language is poor or none existent, but here we were welcomed and fed in a five star way. So glad we found it on the first night! The staff were attentive and helpful, multi-lingual menu and pictures if you are still not sure what... More

We really enjoyed the food here and found the staff very friendly and accommodating. It was pleasant not to feel pushed out the door after your meal. We ate there a couple times, and stopped in one night for late drinks before heading back to our hotel. I had the chicken souvlaki and baklava for desert the one night, it... More

This cafe is in the heart of the Plaka at the base of the Acropolis. It has indoor and outdoor seating. The food is made from authentic family recipes dating back centuries. It is always delicious and always our first stop when in Athens. Give it a try, you'll love it!

We visited several times as the hotel was very close to our hotel. The food was excellent, very good portion size and cooked to perfection. The house wine was perfect for us, and we tested that many times. Service was wonderful, friendly, unobtrusive and efficient. We would have walked past, it looks very swish and we only wanted to nip... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
