Most cafes and restaurants in the Plaka can be a bit of a lottery, especially when being beckoned into everyone there is. Stopped here for a drink then read the menu for lunch and tried some small plates. Very good and would recommend. Toilets are clean and staff, if you ignore the "touts" were friendly. There are nice seats outside... More

Had a couple of drinks at the bar. Irene is the shining light of Athens, a great host full of entertainment and personality. We will remember her with great memories of our holiday. Love Jack & Nerida.

The best place to eat lamb! Oven lamb with potatoes is the best. Vegetarian variety is a real boost for those who don't eat meat and of course the greek salad as its best. Highly recommended!

Visited at 9pm with my 14 year old son, very relaxed and busy, lovely staff and clientele. Have the stuffed vines leaves and the Pasticio. Salami is good too. Food generally great and served quickly. Nothing to fault and set in a nice square in the midst of Plaka. Prices very typical for Athens.

Starters were tasty but nothing special while the gyro was not so good. Service was fine and restaurant location really nice.

8 ladies had light meal and drinks at Ydria on Saturday and the lady hostess was really nice. The service however was slow and we had to remind the waiters to bring things ordered. Not cheap but nice enough.

The waiter was unfriendly and unhelpful, the food was on the verge of being bad. Overpriced and not a nice experience.

We were enticed to visit this restaurant by a very friendly and cheerful hostess outside, and there were quite a few locals eating as well who seemed to be regulars. The service was very good, with a tasty chicken soup with a very generous serving of chicken and a nice lamb with lemon sauce as well. Whilst the pastitsio was... More

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.
