Vezené ​ – A bistro-style restaurant with plenty of elegant decorative touches and an impressive glass porch. One speciality that we particularly recommend is the delicious and intense BBQ Rib & Trachanasfinished on the grill after being slow cooked at low temperature.

Greek Flavors

Taverna tou Psara​ – Located in the picturesque area of Plaka, is a beautifully landscaped neoclassical building. The historic restaurant “Palia Taverna tou Psara” (“Old Fisherman’s Tavern”) since 1898, is point of reference for those who love good Greek cuisine. 

Klimataria This family-run taverna is a must since 1927. Evenings packed with Mediterranean food, music and dance awaits you here. Considering Klimataria translates as ‘grape vines’, it’s no surprise the wine served here is always excellent.
