You can't go better for value, from 3 euro Gyro to incredible mix platters, this is the first stop in Athens for food!

Our family with 3 elementary school age kids enjoyed this restaurant. We ordered the chicken sticks plate for the kids to share and there was plenty of food. We also ordered the moussaka- a local dish which was delicious. House wine was only 2 euros!...More

We visited twice in our 3 day stay because the food and hospitality were out of this world. If you're visiting Athens, make sure to at least visit here once!

Brilliant chicken gyros, crispy, fatty, and brilliant tzatziki and crunchy chips. Also, a lovely lady served us, she was very friendly and recommended dishes, as well as offered a friendly ribbing to my wife, who opted to play safe and have Greek salad! Recommend!!!

This is a straightforward Greek menu eatery on the main road a short walk away from the swankier more tourist oriented restaurants in front of the Acropolis Museum, Dionysus Theatre end of the Acropolis complex. The prices reflect the location more than the quality which...More

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
