All Day Café – Bistro | Aminta 6 | 1.5 km
The large wooden frames on the windows blend in with the trees of Proskopon square. The owners dressed up a concrete space with plants and original artworks, built a low bar where customers can see how their drink is made and created a bar-restaurant that defines itself as a zintoneria. Here you will come for the international comfort food, accompanied with a variety of drinks.

Italian Restaurant | Efforionos 13 | 1.6 km
On a pedestrian street of busy Pagkrati, this restaurant has fanatical visitors for its triptych: taste – atmosphere – service.

It brings the air of Greek tradition to a modern space. On the menu you will find appetizers and dishes that remind you of a Sunday table or a celebration with your loved ones.

All Day Café – Bistro | Arrianou 29 | 1.6 km

Traditional Greek Tavern | Polemonos 4 | 1.6 km
Nostalgic atmosphere, traditional cooking and seasoned meats, probably the best lamb ribs in town. The painter Doris, a friend of Modigliani’s (when he lived in Paris) used to frequent there, who instead of paying for his food, painted the shop’s walls with drawings of black cats, the shop’s trademark.

All Day Café – Restaurant | Eratosthenous 13 | 1.6 km
Entering this neoclassical building of 1920, which houses the contemporary art museum of the Vassilis and Eliza Goulandris Foundation, the intellectual environment overwhelms you. Eleven floors, of which seven are open to the public, give plenty of food for thought but after a tête-à-tête with a rich collection of works by leading artists such as Picasso, Van Gogh or Monet, a stop at the elegant café-restaurant between the ground floor and the first floor, for a drink or meal completes the experience. The relaxed environment “clicks” nicely with the culinary concept with a menu edited by chef Dimitris Daglis. Here you will also find a “hidden” open interior garden which, when the weather permits, is perfect for coffee, food and drinks.

Vegeterian Restaurant & Falafel | Empedokleous 25-27 | 2.2 km

Restaurant – Fusion Cuisine | Empedokleous 34 | 2.3 km
Chef Adam Kontovas who knows, as few do, what fusion means, reconnected very recently with his Egyptian roots, has not left behind his Asian influences, and wanted to make his most personal venture a food-ode to the Greek tavern. All these are married at Ex Machina, where we will listen to French rap while eating the most zero waste pasta with fish in town.
