Close to Monastiraki square we discovered a nice secret garden and tried a very nice non pasteurized greek beer. It is a very nice place right next to the city center but avoiding all tue disturbing noises. We liked it very much.

I needed to get some work done and this place was very quiet in the morning- plenty of space inside and out back on the nice patio. Stayed and had a nice lunch. Definitely recommend.

Calm and relaxed. Feels exclusive. Nice food. 5€ glass of wine 5€ a dish. Would recommend. The atmosphere here is nice and is awesome if you love cats.

Lots of interesting art around in the small alleyway leading to the nice and hidden terrace in the back of the bar. Bar itself is not too big, but it has nice decoration. Friendly staff and apparently more locals visiting the place than tourists. We...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
