We went on the coolest day in April but still sat the balcony - they had patio heaters. Pleasant ambiance, great food, good service. Valerian salad seemed to be lambs lettuce to us but good. Total bill for three 136 Euros including a bottle of...More

This restaurant is excellent! Delicious food and good service. We ate there at lunch, and so sat outside on the balcony, but the interior looks good too. We were a group of 4, and decided to try different things. We started off with the cheese...More

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
