Both my friend and I dislike being hustled on the street to come into a restaurant, but this is Plaka so we decided to go with the flow. Had a very pleasant and reasonably priced meal with live music in the background. A nice surprise.

We stumbled across this lovely taverna by accident. Live music (sat night) was superb. The food was excellent and fresh. The white wine was delicious. All very reasonably priced.

Its is the oldest Athenian tavern in Plaka. The name means fried cod fish and it's their speciality served with a spicy garlic sauce. The menu is the one they always served in Athens tavernas. Tasty stuffed vine leaves with rice. Nice meatballs, many vegetarian dishes and lots of meat and fish. The wine comes from the family's vineyards. The... More

The food was all tasty and well cooked. Lovely staff and a clean bright interior despite being underground. The sea bream was perfect

I usually avoid submitting a review after visiting a place for the first time. So, this was the third time in the specific taverna, which I find quite cosy and authentic although it is located in a very touristic neighbourhood of Athens (Plaka). However, this time the quality of some dishes seemed to have diminished (especially the swordfish fillet). I... More

Bakaliarakia was a typical taverna in Plaka. Good food and fair prices. The presence of the typical waiter whose purpose is grabbing tourists from the street and some clients smoking inside made me lower my judgement that would have otherwise been higher

This tavern dates from the 1860s. Great atmosphere, very good food, value for money. One of the Plaka district's most interesting eating joints.

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
