I love the restaurants in Athens - they're just so amazing. The chefs in the city do a great job giving a variety of foods from Greek cuisine, from the old to the new. I found this link with a nice list of nine restaurants that I plan to try. What do you guys thing? Have you been to any of these?



I have been to all the Michelin rated restaurants in Athens. My recommendations are as follows ( this is purely on the culinary experience, not the view):
1) Spondi
2) Botrini’s

Not Michelin rated, but worth a visit:

1) Aleria (prix fix)
2) Kouvelos (taverna)
3) Il Trovatore (Italian, Palio Faliro)
4) Aperando Galazio (seafood on the beach, Vari)
5) Margaro (taverna, Piraeus)

This is a great list! I have always wanted to dine at a Michelin rated restaurant in Greece, but the other places look great, too.

I haven't been to any of them personally and haven't heard of any of them except for Strofi. I have heard great things about that one! This list looks fantastic though. Sandyrigo, the list you posted also looks great, thank you for sharing!

I'm so glad you love the restaurants in Athens! I think the chefs here do a great job regarding the variety and quality of the food. I'm excited to hear that you're planning on trying out some of the restaurants on this list - I'm sure you'll love them! I haven't been to any of these restaurants, but I have heard great things about them from friends. The best one they recommended is https://www.riwa-restaurant.de/de/ with a great menu and prices. I'm sure you'll have a great time!

Athens Metro Station with Artifacts?

What is the name of the metro station in Athens that has the artifacts on display? I heard about it and want to see it, but I am not sure it is worth going out of my way for. Is there more than ne to see?

I love artifacts and am just looking for more detail. I will be in the city for just a few days so I am really struggling if this is worth it or not.

Visiting Temple of Poseidon

I will be in Athens and I want too spend some time at the Temple of Poseidon in Sounio.

We will be staying near (or in) Glyfada - I forget where.

I was told you just need to take a taxi or something? I won't be renting a car and plan to just take the metro and taxis while in the city. It won't be long, then I am moving on.

Visiting the Cycladic Museum

Though I will be in Mykonos for a while when I come to Greece (soon!) I will have some time in Athens.

I will be tied up with wedding festivities on Mykonos, but I will have some time. So, I want to learn about the history and culture of the island. I know there has to be more to it there than all the parties and the beach scene.

I plan to visit the Cycladic Museum in Athens to get ready. Is there anything I should keep in mind while I explore the museum?

Where to stay before cruise leaving Piraeus?

I have a friend who is staying in Athens just a few nights then going off on a cruise leaving Piraeus. This is in the late summer sometime. I told her I would ask advice - I am at a loss because I usually spend longer in Greece and get an Air BnB - at least that is what I have been doing lately.

Anyway, where should she stay? Any advice on areas of Athens or even names of hotels?

List of Things to Do in Piraeus

I am staying in Piraeus for a few nights while waiting to board a ship. Thought I'd brainstorm some things to do:

- Take a day cruise to one of the local islands - like Aegina
- Take public transport to the Plaka area and maybe even see the Parthenon again - I have done this so many times but I love it
- Maybe rent a car to explore around on my own? Do something like head to Sounion for the Temple of Poseidon and visit the beach that's there?

What would you guys do if you were me?
