We are looking for a couple of excellent traditional Greek restaurants in Athens. Price is not important. We are staying on Syntagma Square. Any recommendations ?

  1. Hi srgn! There are wonderful places in Athens...

    Many people love Tzitzikas kai Mermingas in Aischilou 26

    In Thissio, have your hotel book a rooftop table in the evening at Filistron- great food, and great view of the Acropolis. Also in Thissio is a great restaurant also with an acropolis view-Kuzina

    in Kolonaki- a place not far at all from Syntagma (take a 5 euro cap ride there) to Kioupia! The restaurant is in a lovely neo-classical building.

    Two more upscale places with great Greek seafood is Milos in the Hilton and Varoulko, which has one michelin star.

    hit the bakeries as well for great "horiatiki" bread, spinach pies, and cheese pies.
