Top choice greek in Kalamaki

A top choice for something with a genuine bygone local flair, head one block inland from the Kalamki beach to Yiannis, a bare-bones eatery that has been running for over 30 years. It enjoys cult status with locals and loyal visitors for its scrumptious mezedhes and lovably eccentric proprietor.

It’s a go-with-the-flow place, where €12 gets you a selection of spontaneous treats and more. In summer, he’ll even arrange picnic boxes (around €8).
