Tucked in just west of the vegetable stalls at the central market, you will find no sign of a restaurant; just a wall with some steps going underground. Diporto means '2 doors' and that is all the clue you will get. When you bravely descend...More

This unmarked and totally unchanged room gives one a glimpse of what eating out for the working classes must have been like 100 years ago. If the food was anything like Diporto then it must've been fantastic! Do not miss this place

We visit Diporto every time we visit Athens, sometimes for many days in a row. It always offers the most tasty simple traditional food downtown (cuttlefish, fava, beans soup, probably the best chickpeas soup in the world, small fish, salad) and for 10 euros per...More

Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is
grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from
the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its
underground stalls, the square is now mostly
