We've all been through it; visiting a new place and bumping onto faux-folk taverns at touristic locations where prices are even worse than the food served... If that rings a familiar bell allow the local to take the wheel! In my never-ending search for new flavors I've discovered a few places in Athens that offer a combination of great dishes, good prices and a pleasant atmosphere to accompany them. If you want to taste excellent cuisine, in most cases based on traditional Greek recipes that are often not without a daring touch, let me take you to certain wonderful restaurants or taverns! Having tried most of the dishes I'll help you choose and provide meaningful conversation regarding all the things you want to know about Greece!
