Here it is worth to visit to get acquainted with the gastronomic culture of Ancient Greece. Historians were involved in creating the menu, 15 volumes of antique cookbooks were studied. The dishes are historically authentic: among the ingredients there are no potatoes, tomatoes, rice, coffee...More

A very good and highly conceptual restaurant, which shows great respect to the sources, the “rituals” and the culinary traditions of the ancient Greek world, and an equally good “hand-picked” menu to go with it. I was a bit suspicious, so I went pretty simple...More

In case you find yourself in the city center, then you should definately visit Archeon Gefsis for some ancient Greek flavors. We (family) visited this restaurant one July afternoon. We had already booked our meals (with discounted coupons) and we paid around 40 euros for...More

Archaion Gefseis is a restaurant that I wanted to visit pretty much since it opened, which must be over ten years ago. The restaurant has moved at least twice - if I remember correctly it used to be located in Plaka, and then it had...More

No reason to eat here, touristic and nothing interesting about the food. Quiet place and a good escape From the hussel outside but not enough reason to dine. We do not recommend.

Side-by-side neighbourhoods Psirri and Gazi provide
some of the city’s prime nightlife. The almost
claustrophobic streets of Psirri feature an
interesting blend of original small businesses with
the restaurants, cafés and bars that have recently
sprouted up. The central artery of Agion Anargiron
Street has lively places to eat or drink. Further

Description
The Ancient Greek Cuisine, the one that inspired so many others, makes a unique comeback after 25 centuries... What do we really know about it? Surely less than what we know about chinese, mexican or american. Still, we take pride of the ancient Greek civilization that is generally admitted to have greatly benefited to mankind two and a half thousand years ago. It would be impossible for the people who taught the Western World about democracy, theatre, philosophy, medicine, mathematics and so many more to be ignorant about healthy eating habits.In order for Archeon Gefsis (Ancient Tastes) to become a reality, a large number of specialized scientists such as linguists, archaeologists, architects and tasters put a considerable amount of time into studying rare manuscripts with the aim to collect recipes and identify the eating habits of ancient Greeks.As research progressed their surprise and admiration grew bigger! Never would they have imagined they would find so much information on ancient Greek gastronomy. It is enough to say that a publication called Deipnosophistes consists of 15 volumes exclusively on ancient abbreviations and customs. Enjoy your meal, or as ancient Greeks used to say evdipnias!
