Nestled in the winding streets of hidden Anafiotika in the shadow of the mighty Acropolis, this friendly and picturesque spot certainly lives up to its name of 'Zeus the Hospitable'. Watch the setting sun illuminate the whitewashed steps, potted geraniums and shady olives of Anafiotika. Feel the cool breeze ruffle your hair while you feast on the very best Greek taverna cuisine in our vine-covered courtyard setting.

Tuck into minty tzatziki and the plumpest olives in Athens to begin. Then choose from pork rolls in their crackling coats, or another signature Greek dish: meltingly tender roast lamb. There’s traditional spinach pie and cheese croquettes, and the delicious fried courgette balls they call kolokithokeftedes – a mouthful in more ways than one. Why not order a carafe of Greek wine to accompany your meal?

Hard Rock Cafe
from $16
Hard Rock Cafe

The rock on which western civilisation was built is now home to the one and only Hard Rock Cafe Athens, located little over 500 metres from the Acropolis. Come along and enjoy a legendary burger or twister mad while admiring a magnificent memorabilia collection that features items that belonged to Elton John and other great stars such as Madonna and Prince. See guitars, cymbals, outfits, wigs, hats, discs, handwritten George Michael lyrics and even motorbikes associated with musical greats. Like all great revolutions, the Hard Rock Cafe wasn’t meant to succeed. It was 1971 and as the Swinging Sixties had given way to the Super Seventies, fashions and tastes were changing. Two hungry young Americans were in London and couldn’t find a decent place to eat a decent burger… so they opened up a joint in the English capital. Their landlord didn’t think it would last and gave them just a six-month lease. Four decades later, there almost 200 Hard Rock Cafes in more than 50 countries worldwide. The first T-shirt hit the streets in ‘74 and the first piece of memorabilia came, fittingly, by chance in ‘79 when Eric Clapton asked to hang his Lead II Fender guitar over his favourite bar stool and thus mark as his spot. Today, the rock 'n' roll collection has more than 74,000 pieces and is the largest of its kind. By 1982, the Hard Rock Cafe had gone global and the rest, as they say, is history (that’s still being written)! Vinyl Menu: Choice of main course: Hard Rock burger or Hard Rock cheeseburger, or veggie burger, or honey mustard chicken sandwich Signature ice cream and choice of soft drink, coffee or tea Gold Menu: Choice of main course: Hard Rock burger or cheeseburger or veggie burger, or honey mustard chicken Sandwich, or chicken Caesar salad, or hickory-smoked Bar-B-Que chicken, or Twisted Mac, chicken & cheese Signature ice cream and choice of soft drink, coffee or tea Diamond Menu: Choice of Starter: Lil Caesar salad or Lil House salad Choice of main course: Twisted Mac, chicken & Cheese or hickory-smoked Bar-B-Que Ribs, or hickory-smoked Bar-B-Que chicken, or Legendary burger, or veggie leggie burger, or chicken Caesar salad Baker’s choice dessert and choice of soft drink, coffee or tea Choice of coffee, tea or soft drink Platinum Menu: Choice of Starter: Lil Caesar salad or Lil House salad Choice of main course: Grilled salmon or hickory-smoked Bar-B-Que Ribs, or hickory-smoked Bar-B-Que chicken, or Twisted Mac, chicken & Cheese, or New York strip steak, or Legendary burger, or veggie leggie burger, or chef’s salad Baker’s choice dessert and choice of soft drink, coffee or tea All mains served with either fries or a side salad Meeting/pick-up point: Filellinon 18.

Restaurant Archeon Gefseis - Ancient Greek Cuisine
from $36
Restaurant Archeon Gefseis - Ancient Greek Cuisine

Hop in your handy time machine and travel back 25 centuries to dine at a restaurant with a difference: it only serves ancient Greek cuisine. The Archeon Gefseis, or ‘Ancient Flavour’ restaurant is a true world first and has garnered a huge amount of well-deserved attention in the international media. Pontificate over philosophy, debate democracy or hold your own symposium in this authentic environment surrounded by classical statues, frescos and torches. Your waiter, attired in a flowing red robe, will lead you to your table where you can sip wine from an earthenware cup and choose your dishes for the evening. Of course, America hasn’t been discovered yet so there’s no potatoes, tomatoes or rice, ruling out many modern Greek dishes. And there are no forks – only Poseidon is allowed one of those. Thankfully the ancients were just as good at cooking as they were at everything else. Stuffed calamari, succulent smoked pork and tender chicken are all on the menu, along with pork pancetta with a honey and thyme dressing. All the salads involve plants that Socrates would have eaten, including silphium, a variety of fennel whose leaves grace ancient coins. Without our 21st century sugar obsession, sweetness comes in healthier and more exciting forms: ruby red pomegranate seeds, juicy figs and sticky honey. Luckily for us, the wine still flows plentifully – as does the conversation. Spend a night in the sandals of Plato and Aristotle, Hippocrates and Homer and travel back two and a half thousand years to another world. Discover the surprising, innovative and delicious dishes of antiquity at the Archeon Gefseis. Enjoy your meal, or as the ancient Greeks used to say, ‘evdipnias’!Dioni Menu Salads: Cyclopean (garden rocket with goat grated cheese, olive oil and vinegar) Starters: cheese with Greek berry sauce Main dish : smoked pork with cooked cabbage Desert: milk pie Drinks: 1 welcome drink glass of wine wine with honey.
