Taverna in Syntagma & Plaka

A real treat in Plaka, hidden away and intimate feeling, this traditional place specialises in bakaliaros, toothsome cod fried in pillow-light batter and spiked with garlicky dip. Everything else is solid too, aided by quality house wine, naturally chilled in barrels set in the bedrock. It's been open since 1865. Look for the entrance just right of Brettos bar.
