Arrive a little later for quicker service. When they're not busy, they assume that you're not in a hurry.

Stopped for some drinks in group of four after visiting the Acropolis. Staff were increadible disinterested. Didnt speak on arrival, just pointed to a table and walked off. Not particularly impressed.

Definitely a must. I eat here at least twice on each visit to Athens. The moussaka is excellent. The service is awesome--especially Anastasios and Manislos. And it's in the Plaka just under the Acropolis. Great location.

Came to this place recently and loved it. The food was fantastic (grilled octopus for starter followed by lamb in lemon sauce); the beer was cold; the service super friendly; the setting perfect (I sat outside, on the esplanade); and the prices were reasonable. Wonderful place indeed!

We thought this was a nice place for a drink after wandering around the district.Nice terrace outside, but we sat inside and liked the atmosphere. My wife had stuffed tomatoes which she thought were fine, and I had a moussaka, which I also enjoyed. Nice wine available too.

Ydria is a relaxed place to sit and enjoy drinks or food and people watch. Plenty of outdoor seating surrounded by greenery makes for a pleasant atmosphere. I only ate here once - a cheese & tomato baguette - and was not impressed BUT the coffee was the best I had in Athens, and I returned several times after having... More

My husband and I walked around Plaka looking for a place to relax, enjoy a glass of wine and experience the local cuisine. We took a chance on this place and we're glad we did. We were tempted to try their blue wine from Salamanca, Spain but instead close a nice glass of moscato. Yum! I ordered the Greek meat... More

For the price this was our worst meal. The food was lacking in flavour and the vegetarian mousaka seemed warmed in a microwave . The venue was good and service was good. Would not go again nor recommend.

We stopped by the Plaka area and stumbled upon Ydira. There is a big TripAdvisor sign on the window and so we felt comfortable in giving them a try. Atmosphere was good with also attentive staffs. We ordered the mixed grilled platter and it also included a side where we picked the boiled veggies. My boyfriend said the dish and... 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.
