Lonely Planet review

Hidden away on colourful Plateia Avyssinias, in the middle of the flea market, this bohemian mezedhopoleio gets top marks for atmosphere, food and friendly service. It specialises in regional Greek cuisine, from warm fava to eggplants baked with tomato and cheese, and has a great selection of ouzo, raki (Cretan firewater) and tsipouro (distilled spirit similar to ouzo but usually stronger).

There is acoustic live Greek music on weekends. Snag fantastic Acropolis views upstairs.
