We had a wonderful lunch here, the owner, a wonderful woman who spoke very good english and italian, was so nice and even offered us a taste of different dishes when she found out my mom was greek. Best dolmathes I've had in ages. The Pastitsio was good but portions were huge. The pita ghiro are a great value meal... More

We went to smile 4 times during our trip to Athens! Best tzatziki and feta out of all the restaurants we tried. Very friendly service and half the price of the other restaurants in the same area. Chicken and pork gyros were outstanding, moussaka and pastitsio rivaled homemade island food which was a pleasant surprise. Would definitely recommend this place... More

My family and I really enjoyed the smile cafe. I have small children and they were absolutely great with them. It felt like home. The food was traditional and homemade. Everything was delicious.

The famous "Giro's Pita" is really cheap and good, with many options of meat, including vegetarian. The house wine is OK. The dessert is good! The staff was helpful and nice! We had a great time there!

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
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 up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
