This is a homey, modest place with excellent grilled lamb chops. We had a simple but memorable meal of 1/2 kg of lamb chops, a greek salad, potatoes and wine. Away from the beaten path but still walkable from out hotel in the Plaka.

Probably best lamb chops in Athens. Place is situated close to Thissio metro station but you need to know where to go to get there. Full of true Greeks, very few tourists. Real food for real locals. Of course: greek salad or tzatziki are delicious...More

This place is slightly off the main tourist area. Walking here felt a little scary because my family and I are visibly foreigners and we had to walk through a park with many young locals and we received many stares (and 1 taunt). My parents...More

Located away from the main tourist area. Well known for the lamb chops. The greek salad, grilled aubergine and tzatsiki was very good. Maybe a tad more expensive than other restaurants.
