We had a mediocre meal which was overcooked. The price was on the high side, we shared the restaurant with one other table and had to wave constantly to the waiter to get served, the whole experience was dissapointing as there are so many other places we could have chosen.

Our waiter suggested we have one meat platter and one fish platter to share between the 4 of us. Wow, we got more that we expected. Absolutely great!

I have been coming to this restaurant for more than 10 years. Its owner and his son, Christos, are great people. The food is very good, especially all meat dishes. Great flavor, excellent service, a bit expensive in comparison with other restaurants but the food quality at Old Ithaki is superb. Sometimes, especially Summer and fall they have live Greek...

The signage (in English) calls this a "barbeque" which means, in Greece, grilled. My wife and I had kebobs which were very good, mine of pork grilled just right to keep it moist and juicy. As is not uncommon the owner is out on the sidewalk inviting us in, and the service was great--the owner remembered the other couple who... More

We only had lunch at the restaurant at the Hotel Metropolis and did not stay there. The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating, moderate prices and is a convenient stopping point when shopping or sightseeing in the Plaka. Across the square beyond the cathedral are a large group of restaurants with outdoor seating and probably better food, but we... More

The Ithaki was the first place my wife and I dined when we first visited Athens in 2014 so it seemed appropriate that we pay another visit. The food and service were both as we remembered them to be. My wife remembered how good the mixed kebabs had been, had them again this time and they were great. I had... More

Authentic Greek - from the delicious food, generous portions, great atmosphere and warm hospitality! Conveniently located to the Plaka, parliament, and the National Gardens, this is a "must-stop" for anyone visiting Athens, if you want to truly experience what the Greek's call, "kefi." Your host, Giorgos, whom can converse with you in well over 13 languages, will become your lifelong... More

We really enjoyed our evening here, mostly because of the ambience. the staff are friendly, entertaining, the roaming street musicians are a highlight and the food is, well, fine. Not haute cuisine, but the whole experience adds up to a great evening. well worth a try.

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Plaka
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.
