A "historic place" glorious in the past terrible in the present! Everything we ordered was well below average, poor quality and stuck in the past...in a bad way. Better choose something else

The place does have a glorious past but the present is decadence. Some groups of old ex celebrities cannot save it, when the food is just average and the service close to poor.

Stopped for a lovely lunch in the square. Moussaka was great. They don't serve all the specials everyday but were quick to point this. Well worth a stop if you are passing.

Dirty toilets, kitchens and glasses. Only 2 or 3 dishes available within a menu with 20 dishes. Not an experience to repeat.

Where shall I start? An old glory of Athens turned mediocre. Frequented by loyal clientele. Service is mixed. We were attended to after other clients who came later. The maitre apologized and the service after that was attentive and good. No wine list! We were...More

Pangrati
The elongated Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first
modern Olympic Games in 1896, acts as grand gateway to
the otherwise purely Athenian neighborhood of
Pangrati. This area of typical small squares, busy
main roads and residential streets will give you a
clear sense of what living in this metropolis is like.
A walk up quiet Markou Mousourou Street on the west
side of the stadium will bring you past the First
