We chose Eugenia after reading tons of reviews about the restaurant in Plaka. Great decision! People are right, it's a tiny restaurant..but food is delicious! Portions are very abundant and staff is very kind. For 2 starters, 4 main courses, greek salad, bread and a bootle of ouzo, we paid 52 euro. Best choice ever!

It is a very small restaurant, but please wait for the table and you will explore a fresh taste. We took cheeses, shrimps and a fresh fish. All food was fantastic, but fish was like a symphony of heaven for me:))) Nice and friendly service!

Evgenia's cooking is appreciated by most Athenians who order to take out if they can not get a table. Unfortunately, there are only a few tables inside and on the sidewalk. Although it is located in Plaka , there are very few tourists at Evgenia's. The clientele is mostly Greek who appreciate the home made σπιτικό , authentic, traditional ,... More

Brought here by a local Grecian, this tiny place is a must for anybody wanting an authentic Greek meal whilst in Athens. The waitress was extremely attentive to our needs, and the lovely, grandmotherly chef came out and made sure we were all enjoying her delicious cooking! Catered to vegans. You must try the fantastic fava!

We had read reviews of this cosy taverna online so were determined to find it on our visit to Athens on a rainy November day from our Cruise. We were not disappointed. A warm welcome, fantastic home-cooked food (moussaka amazing), great local wine. And a wonderful waitress. Just off the tourist trail, no photos of food on the menu! Great.... More

We found this family eatery on our first trip in 2014, and have returned each year since. Just off the Ermou pedestrian mall, and minutes from Plaka and the Parthenon, this terrific little place offers the best home cooked meals in Athens. Four or five little sidewalk tables face a parking lot on a busy corner, but everyone knows the... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
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 stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
