Nothing special. Small portion for the requested price. The gentleman at the entrance very insistently, do not be fooled by him.

Today we have ordered crepes with strawberry and chocolate and kaimaki ice cream. For drinks we asked for apperol and glass of house wine. That was fantastic!

As is the custom in Plaka, there was a gregarious and gracious greeter outside the restaurant urging passers by to dine at the restaurant. He seemed more genuine than most and we were not disappointed. Quiet, capable wait staff. Delicious food.

Situated in busy square in the Plaka district of Athens, this restaurant has a lot of local competition. The food and service make it stand out. The vegetable soup is deserving of a mention and do finish with the baclava.

We came for the moussaka which was pretty average. It obviously wasn't freshly prepared, but just reheated. Prices were okay. Portions aren't too big. Service is not exactly unfriendly, but certainly not friendly either. We wouldn't eat here again.

Estia is located next door to the hotel that I was staying in (Palladium hotel). The service was very good and the mousaka and vegetable soup were the pick for me (I went to the restaurant a number of times).

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
