Eating & drinkingEating & drinking

In the Psyrri city area, the old, traditional workshops have been transformed into trendy restaurants and cafés, and this trend is continuing in Gazi and Rouf. Here you will find many simple taverns where simple meals are served, but the 'new' Greek cuisine wins all the awards.

To Kioupi

Traditional tavern a few steps down in the midst of the trendy cafés, where you can point at what you would like to eat. Reasonably priced and in complete contrast to life on the Kolonaki square above.
Address: 4 Plateia Kolonakiou, Kolonaki

Platanos

Popular restaurant behind the Aérides (Tower of the Winds), which has been there for ages and serves typical Greek meals.
Address: 4 Diogenous, Plaka

Psaras

Centrally located fish restaurant dating back to 1898. Paintings by Savakis decorate a stone wall. The tables are placed on the wide stairs of the alley that winds upward to the top and down to below.
Address: 16 Erechtheos/Erotokritou, Plaka

Spondi

The best restaurant in Athens – and, according to many people, also in the whole of Greece. The French two-star chef creates the menu and has made the wine cellar famous. Simplicity is the rule in this restaurant that has won all the awards for many years.
Address: 5 Pyrronos, Pangrati

Cafés

The Athenians love to sit in a kafeneion to drink Greek coffee or frappé, iced coffee. Nowadays, caffe latte and cappuccino are also available here.

Plaka

Around the central square in Plaka there are many of this kind of small cafes where you can drink a frappé, read a newspaper and let the world go by.
Address: Kydathineon

Caffé Peros

Central point of the Kolonaki square, where everyone ends up sooner or later. This is where the wealthy ladies and gentlemen enjoy a cup of coffee. Open throughout the year.
Address: Plateia Kolonakiou, Kolonaki

Da Capo

As distinguished as Peros is, so trendy is Da Capo. Here the young jet setters gather after shopping or before going out at night.
Address: Plateia Kolonakiou, Kolonaki
