We had some very poor dining expetiences around the very touristry Plaka but this surely was not the case here. The food is very simple, decent and fresh. Their menu does not offer some of the staples like Gyros but we all went for fish...More

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
