We had been warned not to go into the tourist areas in Athens to eat as the restaurants 'rushed diners through and were expensive'. I found this information to be rubbish. We dined here for dinner and found the menu was quite varied. The staff...More

At the end of my month in Greece, I decided to dine out more lavishly. Daphne's was my instinctive choice. My tour guide confirmed my impression. It was a good choice. Although, as with most of Plaka, it is touristic, the location and the very...More

Among the dozens of tourist restaurants in Plaka, this one offers yet another tourist but excellent quality food. The terrace is fantastic and with very nice environment. The Crete salad is just marvellous. Wine prices are a bit expensive but very good. The overall balance...More

We had a nice meal on a hot summer evening. The food was a nice representation of classic Greek cooking - good salads, the best Moussaka I had in Greece and friendly service. I didn't think the desserts (pastries & fruit) were particularly notable though...More

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

pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
