Restaurant Picks: Acropolis Area


Many locals occasionally opt for one of the area’s restaurants or tavernas when they wish to treat themselves to something special in picturesque surroundings.

 

Tip!

Most restaurants and tavernas accept credit cards and reservations,
but it’s probably best to check beforehand by phoning. Around 15 August, the feast of the Dormition of the Virgin,
the city empties and many venues are closed. Lunchtime is generally considered after 2 p.m.,
while most Greeks sit down for dinner around 10 p.m.
