If you want to experience authentic Greek family food give this a try. From the moment you walk in the service is awesome! Run by a family this is a definite try!

A real family restaurant that treats you just like family. We have been coming to Athens for years and don’t eat anywhere else. The kleftico is the best anywhere in Greece, you must try it. The chicken soup and sea bass are also must try’s.

I had my first Gyro in Greece here. It was a pork gyro and tasted quite good. However, I could have done without the French fries that were packed inside.

After a long flight from New York City to Athens, where we promptly passed out at the hotel for several hours, we had our first meal here. All in all the food was decent, nothing that really stood out, but comfortable, relaxing, and tasty. Mixed...More

On our way to the Acropolis we stopped for lunch. Our guide has recommended the place for so flaky. Service is slow and not friendly. Food is average. Wine is bad . Price is excellent.

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
