This place is great for people watching. Located in a small square and in the shade, It's comfortable chairs are good for a rest and a glass of vine after shopping or sight seeing. Service is friendly.

Just had coffee and sandwiches for lunch. Pleasant seating area, nice servers but coffee and drinks were just average. Nothing bad but nothing exceptional either. If you are inclined to go then no reason not to but dont expect too much in food quality.

If you want to get a feel for Athens, this is a great spot to be. Find a seat outside on the patio, order a pastry and espresso, and take in the sights and the sounds of the city!

The server was pushy, the food was terrible (dry meat, stale pita, cheap pizza with frozen crust and way too much cheese), food took like 45 minutes to cook (we were nearly the only people there!), and the prices were high. Seriously this place is...More

Walking round Athens in the heat of the day demands that you stop off at one of the thousands of restaurants available and get fed and watered. Wow, we were so pleasantly surprised we returned the next day for dinner. The food was really lovely,...More

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
