Don't recommend this place. The food is below mediocre and the service is terrible. Plus they serve old bread with your meal and you'll discover latter that the bread is charged expensively. Surprise! Only positive point is the terrace which is quite nice. You choose.

Had Briam (vegetable casserole) Monday 28th May and it was sublime, longing to know how to replicate the dish back in Bonnybridge, Scotland. Returned to Glykis Thursday 31st May for a birthday Briam to find it very different - it was delicious but did not...More

The restaurant is located in one of the more quiet streets of Plaka, Athens. We had meatballs, grilled pork and greek salad for lunch. We liked all the dishes, especially the greek salad. Prices are decent, at around or just below average. All in all...More

Very calm, not touristy place. Not very cheap and not very tasteful food but if you need a calm place, it's a good choice. It's better for drink than food.

I ordered Greek Tsipouro (small bottle) and a small variety for only 3,5 euros. Great value for money, because in other restaurants you pay 8 euros for this! Very nice environment for your dinner, with traditional tables, seats and photos.... Definitely recommended

Take a small break from the hustle and bustle of the main Plaka streets. Here you can enjoy a simple meal or a drink in what feels like an authentic establishment without frills.

Just avoid the food. If you want to try precooked Greek food then yes, by all means. If you don't then just stay away.

We read about this place in the Lonely Planet. It is a quiet street just around the corner of a busy square full of restaurants in Plaka. We loved the atmosphere, the lights and, of course, the food. We had the tzatziki and the meatballs...More

I've tried in different places but this was the best Nescafé frappe that I've tried! Relaxing atmosphere, really good place to have a break in la Plaka!

I have had many mazes in my life. But I have never had such a delicious mezzes before. Restaurant servers are not the best. But it is away from the tourist crowd, quite, private and food is delicious.

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
