Diporto Agoras

Top choice taverna in Monastiraki & Psyrri

This quirky old taverna is an Athens dining gem. There's no signage – two doors lead to a rustic cellar where there's no menu, just a few dishes that haven’t changed in years. The house speciality is revythia (chickpeas), usually followed by grilled fish and paired with wine from one of the giant barrels lining the wall.

The often-erratic service is part of the appeal.
