Came for dinner on the recommendation of our hotel. It was overpriced and the service was really slow. Got the Kebab plate. Ate outside which was nice but again search other places in Plaka

We (5) had diner around 20:00 at Psara. Very touristic place, but certainly no tourist trap. We had a good 2 course diner with wine for 200 euro. The setting is nice: it's a terraced garden. You overlook plaka and monastiraki. Thanks to the terraced...More

The dinner was nothing special and the food was not as we expected as we paid 100 euros and for the Greek standards is a lot. The service was ok but the lamb was difficult to cut and I felt like I wasted my money....More

Truly enjoyed this little restaurant. The food was excellent and reasonably priced and the service was above average. Would revisit should my travels lead me back to Athens.

Very nice venue with live music. The waiter forgot about us, gave us an appetizer we did not order(we thought it was for the wait) . When the main dish arrived, we got the wrong order. Then she had to take our order once more....

It is located in beautiful Plaka and it is all about its location since it uses the crossing of some streets with a small square and stairs of Plaka. Typical Greek food. Moussaka was tasty, the octopus ball were rather strong. The service was not...More

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
