Looking for a light lunch after a tour of Grandmasters Palace and delving into nearby galleries we chanced upon this off the street restaurant with capacious outdoor seating around fountains and large trees. Being off-season seemed to be a one-man front-of-house but service was pleasant and timely. Our shared pizza was well piced and accompaning beers and coffee suited our... More

Beautiful, tranquil, sub tropical gardens through an archway half way up Socrates Street. Ouzo is as cheap as anywhere in town (2.7 Euro at time of writing). Very friendly service and clean toilets. Great for an early morning coffee (or ouzo) - opens around 9 am. An oasis of peace and calm. Good menu but didn't try food.

We found the garden Taverna by accident simply walking up the street. If you like you Taverna's traditional and genuine, this is the place. Nikitas the bar man is a really lovely and a genuinely welcoming host. Absolutely superb! If you read this Nik, this is Russ from the Olympic Palace Hotel!!

Lovely environment with water fountains, trees and plants, tucked away, off Sokratous street. Friendly waiters (especially Christos), great fresh food and Greek music. Highly recommended!

4th visit and never disappoints. Lovely setting always seems cool even when it's 30+ degrees. Friendly staff good selection of beers clean toilets. Ideal place to chill after 2 hours traipsing round the streets.

Tranquility in the midst of tourist congestion. This delightful setting offered pomegranate trees, banana plants, lime trees and more off the well beaten tourist path. We shared a classic Greek salad that was fresh and delicious as well as some afternoon snacks and refreshments. The fare may have been typical but the atmosphere was anything but... the service was efficient... More
