We stopped in here for dinner and found the food to be good and very reasonably priced. We had fried zucchini, gyros and cheese balls. Nothing overly fancy, but the food was tasty and the service was friendly. The house wine is nothing special but...More

the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
