I stopped in at Smile after reading the reviews on here and was really pleased with the attentive service and great food. The feta cheese in the Greek salad was the best I had in Athens, while the spanakopita pies were a huge portion and...More

Came across this restaurant by chance and wasn't disappointed. Had the Doner Gyros Platter which I enjoyed but would rather the pitta wasn't precut in to triangles.

If you want to experience authentic Greek family food give this a try. From the moment you walk in the service is awesome! Run by a family this is a definite try!

A real family restaurant that treats you just like family. We have been coming to Athens for years and don’t eat anywhere else. The kleftico is the best anywhere in Greece, you must try it. The chicken soup and sea bass are also must try’s.

I had my first Gyro in Greece here. It was a pork gyro and tasted quite good. However, I could have done without the French fries that were packed inside.

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
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
