Fodor's Review

Set on a picturesque pedestrianized square, this is one of the oldest tavernas in Plaka (established 1932); while not as good as it used to be, it's still worth a stop. It is a district landmark—set midway between the Tower of the Winds and the Museum of Greek Popular Musical Instruments. Although the rooms here are cozily adorned with old paintings and photos, most of the crowd opts to relax under the courtyard's plane trees (which give the place its name). Locals come here because the food is good Greek home cooking. Don't miss the oven-baked potatoes, lamp or veal casserole with spinach or eggplant, the stuffed squid, and the cheap but delicious barrel retsina. It's also open for lunch.
