Went twice despite this being a little way away from our Airbnb based on TripAdvisor reviews. The meatballs in “the” sauce are incredible, the “food of the drunk” amazing and the mushrooms awesome. One of our very favourite restaurants.

Ordered 4 dishes to share between three people. The food came out promptly and all 4 dishes were fantastic. Would definitely recommend the meatballs and the egg plant salad.

We had meatballs and a ‘dish for drunks’. Both were fantastic. Service was average but made up for by the atmosphere and food!

It was raining outside so we stepped inside the restaurant and were greeted by a cosy fire and atmospheric restaurant. The service was very good, and the prices reasonable. We shared a variety of appetizer dishes and they were very tasty, especially the feta with...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
Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to
stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a
pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
