We recently returned from a short break in Athens. We stayed in the Plaka area and found this restaurant a short walk from the hotel. We were actually very surprised at the menu price as the restaurant surroundings would suggest it should have been more expensive. We thoroughly enjoyed both our visits, with the food quality excellent and the service... More

Had lunch at this restaurant in Dec 2016. Reading about it we thought it would be a traditional Greek restaurant. The truth is it's like any restaurant in any part of the world, with no character or anything resembling 'Greek', but has good food and quick but indifferent service. If you are looking for a traditional Greek 'mezedopolio' this is... More

Traditional restaurant in modern settings. Great variety of dishes , excellent seervice, good quality Greek cuisine, central location in Mitropoleos street, just off Syntagma square. Was impressed with rest room and cleanliness . Prices reasonable. But why this and other restaurants in Greece charge customers for a slice of bread? In Cyprus there is no such extra charge for bread...

Τhe new Athinaikon restaurant began to work alongside the little brother of Themistokleous in 2013. It expresses the Greek-Mediterranean cuisine at its best, has reasonable prices and is addressed to a public that looks for authentic flavors from folk and transient fashions. The Athinaikon is an idea that survives time and knows how to transform.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
