Authentic cuisine can be found among some of the most popular restaurants in Athens. Throughout the city, both tourist hotspots and backstreet bars will demonstrate there's more to Greek cuisine than Moussaka and a plate of grilled meat.

Along with both modern gastronomy and contemporary methods, dining out in the Greek capital is a sheer delight. Whether you are looking for Michelin starred restaurants, cosy tavernas or a food experience with a private cook.

Whichever style of dining takes your fancy, you've certainly come to the right place.

Popular Restaurants in Athens

Athens has a wealth of dining options, from traditional Greek taverns to romantic fine-dining. If you are looking for an authentic food experience, then here are five not to be missed!

Traditional Greek Food in A Local Taverna

Foodies can enjoy a traditional Greek meal at a super price. So if you're travelling on a budget, we'd highly recommend this particular experience. As with many "all-inclusive" menus, you can sample as much food as you like.

Not only that, but the restaurant is located in one of the most stunning areas of Athens. An inviting menu includes plenty of fish and meat dishes, along with a variety of salads. There is also a glass of red or white wine included with each meal, along with a shot of Ouzo.

Traditional Dinner in A Greek Tavern

This is a lovely way to enjoy an authentic Greek meal in Athens. One which is tucked away from the tourist areas. Although you won't need to worry about getting lost, as private transport is provided from your accommodation.

The restaurant itself can be found in the P. Faliro neighbourhood, a popular region among the locals. As a traditional Greek tavern, there's an amazing atmosphere with fun and friendly staff.

As such, you can feel relaxed, ready for an authentic dinner of traditional Greek recipes.

Romantic Dinner On the Top of Lycabetus Hill

The perfect place to take your loved one or to celebrate any special occasion! The hill of Lycabettus is the highest peak in Athens and is considered to be one of the most romantic places to visit.

As such, this superb evening out takes place at one of the most popular restaurants in Athens. Complete with a mouth-watering Mediterranean traditional dinner, you can share the experience with a loved one against a backdrop of the ancient city.

Not only that, but the experience includes being collected by a private driver direct from your hotel. As you take a scenic drive to the harbour of Microlimano, a gondola awaits. Here you will be taken to the Orizontes Restaurant, known for its relaxing atmosphere and a multitude of unique aromas.

Delicious Greek Dinner Overlooking the Acropolis

Enjoy a typical Greek dinner on a rooftop terrace overlooking the famous Greek Acropolis.

This is a food experience in Athens at a fantastic location, complete with amazing views. The cuisine is delicious, produced with the very best locally sourced Greek ingredients, for a seasonal menu of up to eight courses.

Although, please note, rather than a restaurant in Athens, this superb dining experience is hosted by a local English-speaking chef. One that takes place in the comfort of their own home.

Romantic Dinner with Acropolis View

Another fantastic dining experience, enjoying stunning views of the illuminated Acropolis. In order to treat your partner to a particularly special night, you will be collected from the lobby of your hotel. b

There will be a short city tour taking you past some of the famous sites and monuments. After which, you and your loved one will arrive in one of the most popular restaurants in Athens.

Set in a glorious three-storey mansion within the Plaka region, diners are offered a magnificent culinary experience. Decorated to reflect the heritage and culture of the area, the restaurant is both modern and authentic.
