Fantastic place with superb, fresh and tasty food. Grilled Squid was exceptionally good. The owner is very friendly with good sense of humor. Smoking is allowed inside - unfortunately.

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small

with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
