The location in the Plaka is perfect. The restaurant is charming but the food was average. Eggplant appetizer was lukewarm and dry. White wine was barely chilled.

Excellent food. We had the lamb in the clay pot. Tender, juicy excellent. Desserts were great. If you go ask for the top terrace which has a nice view. Very affordable.

We asked a local shop owner for the best greek restaurant around and we were pointed to Psarras. The food was amazing. The ambiance was amazing. The service was amazing. We will be visiting this restaurant again when we return to Greece.

We absolutely loved it here, we went here for our first dinner and after that nothing compared, so we came back a second time. Highly recommended. Try the feta wrapped in phyllo with honey, you won’t regret it.

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
