After you read this you may want to print it out and take it with you to Greece.Also take a look at my Guide to Greek Food at Many of these restaurants I visit once or twice a year to make sure they are still good and rather then write a bad review if a restaurant has deteriorated I just remove it from this page.If you go to a popular restaurant and order mayerefta at night you may be disappointed.Most of these links will take you to sections on this page and you can either scroll up or click the return button to come back to this menu.They specialize in grilled meats and fish and all kinds of cooked dishes.Many similar dishes to Paradosiako because Eugenia does the cooking at both places.Well, actually she is the cook and Dimitris is the waiter.
If Paradosiako is full you can just walk down Voulis street and turn right on Apollonos and go to #4 right by the intersection with Nikis street near Syntagma Square, where the son and daughter of Demitris and Eugenia have their restaurant, called Oinomagerio Paradosiako also very good.

Plaka restaurants are touristy by nature which does not always mean bad food.
The ones marked as , are the ones I go to regularly or every chance I get.
Tourists should keep in mind the following: Many restaurants in Athens do the cooking in the morning of the dishes they call mayerefta which are the dishes made in the oven and those you may be most familiar with like mousaka, pastitsio, stuffed tomatoes, roast lamb and potatoes etc. In the evening people order 'tis ores' which are things made right then and there like grilled meats and fish.
