We recently had lunch at this restaurant and really loved the location right in the Plaka. The Plaka is a great area to wander, people watch and enjoy the great food. The staff were friendly and the service was very good.

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
