An old-time classic where Athenians and foreigners of all walks of life meet, have lunch and discuss the latest political developments. 45 years of greek history have been written here. Excellent traditional food. Schnitzel is my favourite. Good value for money,too!

The "Kentrikon" (meaning 'Central;) is among the 2-3 best restaurants of authentic Greek urban cuisine. Great variety of dishes, including forgotten Athenian recipes. If you are lucky you can get an "Athinaiki Synagrida", expensive but wonderful fish. Try the stuffed courgettes or beef ragu with...More

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,

kentrikon Restaurant started as a small coffee house, at the opposite point from its current place, at 1935 by the name of Leykes, from the grand-father o ftodays owner Mr. Nikos Koutouzis. Fron 1971 it is located at Kolokotroni Street No3 and since then it hosts daily those who want to eat cooked food in Athens. Kentrikon dishes are classic, and the flavors remain loyal to the traditional recipe. "This is our philosophy, stability. This also applies to our suppliers that we trust so many years.".
