The best stop for food after a visit to the Acropolis. The location is perfect and the tapas is delicious.
Anafiotika is popular with students. However, this should not put you off as the kids will love the garden whilst you’ll love the food. You’ll find good food combined with ouzo or raki – Greek traditional alcoholic drinks – and other delicacies such as ‘bekri meze’ (Greek dish with pork), melitzanato (a Greek dish with aubergine) and traditional sweets from Grevena.
The staff are very friendly. You can also go for dinner (providing your little fellows won’t fall asleep) to get a real taste of Greece. The cobbled traditional alleyways of Plaka and the Greek music will definitely captivate you.
You can visit Anafiotika for a hearty breakfast, coffee, food and drink. It stays open all hours, even during bank holidays, and is always busy. Its popularity says a lot about the quality which is why we strongly recommend you give it a try.
