Trip Report Our last trip

Jump to last reply

My wife and I went to Athens two weeks ago and we wanted to share our comments

Hotel: we stayed at king george palace . The hotel was excellent , great location, wonderful restaurant , great staff and we paid € 250 per night . We recommend this hotel without a doubt.

Restaurants:

I taverna tou psarra : great restaurant , great service , we recommend the octopus al grill ant the catch of the day .

Kuzina : the best !! . We agreed with the fodors choice category. We recommend the lamb with cous cous and the pork marinated for 12 hours . Try to book in advance a table on the terrace. Great acropolis views.

Balthazar: we didn't like it , poor service , not great food ( not bad also , but not extraordinary ), it seemed more like a night club . We don't agree with the fodors choice category.

Sardelles : wonderful !! We agree with the fodors choice category . We have to recommend the sardines and the fried calamari .

King george palace restaurant : great food , we had the grouper and was fantastic, great acropolis views and good prices ( about € 20 main course ).

Must go attractions :

Acropolis , museum of acropolis , ancient agora, national archaeological museum , benaki museum , museum of Cycladic art .

We only went for a few hours to Mykonos and we have to recommend to go to la Madison de Catherine , wonderful !!!! A truly fodors choice .

Hope this helps
