Fodor's Greek Islands
In warm weather it's worth stopping by this place just to have a drink and enjoy the delightful, painterly scene from the roof garden—a sweeping view of the Acropolis and Mt. Lycabettus. In cooler weather, take a seat in the sunny, cheerful dining room off a pedestrian walkway and enjoy a traditional Greek coffee prepared on hot ashes (xovoli) and homemade cookies. The long list of mezedes has classics and more-unusual dishes: codfish croquettes with herb-and-garlic sauce; pork with mushrooms in wine sauce; sofrito (a traditional omelet dish from the island of Corfu), eggplant and meat rolls, grilled potatoes with smoked cheese and scallions; and an array of regional cheeses, washed down with a flowery white hima (barrel wine). The service is top-notch.
