The food is simple yet tasty. The service is friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere is authentic Athens in a little side street in the local community. Worth a visit for no fuss dining.

We went there for lunch. Better reserve if you want to have a table at peak hours. It is nested in a quiet street in Plaka. Food is simple but so exquisite. Service is gentle. Go there!

Really charming restaurant in a vibrant neighborhood near Akropolis. Delicious food, starting with the lemonade-with-ginger, greek salad, and kavourmas, everything had a fresh and nice touch.

Dropped for a quick meal and drink. They feature meatballs and a "famous red sauce". The sauce was ok but mostly served to hide the terrible meatballs. They were burnt on the outside and dry inside. My homemade ones a class above this.

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
