Great food, fabulous service and delightful music. My only suggestion would be better signage in English. We we sent here by our private guide and the signage was confusing! But is was worth it!!! The tarama was the best we have ever had anywhere!!!

The a la cart menu was great with good quality ingredients. Service was prompt. Tzatziki would be a better dip with the mixed grill than tirokafteri as they served it. Live music entertainment even on a Monday!

This is the second time we ate here and found the food a great experience. Sat outside, listened to their music (there were also dancers the first time), watched some spontaneous Greeks get up and dance several times. A nice way to end out vacation.

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

pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
