Look you are not going here for class , fine dining. The food is good. You certainly won't be hungry leaving. However the atmosphere is what this place is for. People up dancing and singing makes it a really fun night out. I would highly recommend it.

The attitude of the waiters is almost rude, it seems that you are doing them a favour for being there. The prices are expensive....the food is below standard....I believe it is one of the worst places to eat in this area. Don't be fooled by the nice music etc., you can have a good meal elsewhere, unless you are having... More

We had grilled fish and it wasn't as nicely done as the one we had at Carte Postal and it was actually more expensive. We had a table by the streets which wasn't such a good idea because the streets were crowded and we had people brushing against our table constantly

Extremely unprofessional behavior. The service was rude. It seems like the goal of the business is how to earn more money from the customers than to provide a better quality. I highly NOT recommend this restaurant.

We reserved a table at the Kotili café-restaurant for several people as we were celebrating a friend’s graduation. Kotili was chosen because it offered live music and delicious appetizers to accompany our drink. Arriving at the place and after we got seated we were announced that there is a minimum consumption of 13 euros per person, which was never mentioned... More

Having walked around the Agora we settled at Kotili for lunch. The service was good and the Greek salads that we ate were tasty.

Out of five different dishes we ordered only one was good, the vegetarian and also the tzatziki was ok. The rest was a waste of time and money. The music is so loud that after 10 minutes you wait for the breaks between the songs.

My family and I enjoyed lunch in this restaurant. Nice authentic greek grill and fresh seafood. If you want seafood, this is a place for you. I ordered mixed seafood and wife ordered fried anchovies. They were both very tasty. We finished lunch with complimetary ice cream and mastiha spirit (i think this is the best so far). The place... More

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighbourhood Profile
Monastiraki
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized streets surround the remains of both the Greek and Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.
