One of the best dinners i ever had - strongly suggested someone should try the experience, although quite expensive.

Simple, elegant modern design. Knowledgeable and helpful staff. Fresh local and organic only ingredients. Artful presentation of modern interpretation of Greek cuisine. Good wine selection (ask to chill your reds). Definitely a place not to missed.

Relaxing environment. The food is so good I ordered a second dish of seared tuna. Along with the salad the deserts are amazing. Nice dinner setting for the family or couples, reasonable prices and great service. If you are looking to try something other than Gyros or kebobs, this is the place.

Mono has pedigree - the chef knows how to cook and other than the large international and more expensive hotels, this is a chance to experience non-Taverna cooking finally in Plaka. Taverna cooking is good sometimes but the menu never changes and the chef-owner of Mono cooks his own style and with great flavours. We ate there twice for dinners... More

Wow! The quality of food, presentation and service that we received in Mono was second to none. You will not get better value for money anywhere else. Even the bread and olive oil is amazing! We had the hard local cheese which was delicious. The lamb was so tasty as was the pork. To top it all off, the baclava... More

Mono aims for a high dining experience and totally delivered! Really unique dishes, amazing salads and wide selection of wine. Everyone ordered something different and they all looked and smelt delicious. Would definitely go again. Roughly 60-70 euros per person with generous amounts of wine.

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.
