Fodor's Greek Islands
Walls lined with autographed photos of actors from the nearby Odeon of Herodes Atticus attest to Strofi's success with the after-theater crowd that flocks to the Greek festival. Despite the strong following among tourists, the renovated rooftop garden with dramatic views of the lighted Acropolis still attracts locals who have been coming here for decades. In fact, the amazing views come close to stealing the show, although the cuisine comes a very close second. Start with some mezedes, including the smoked eggplant salad or a velvety tzatziki, which perfectly complements the baked zucchini. Another good appetizer is fava, a puree of yellow split peas. For the main course, choose roast lamb wrapped in wine leaves and stuffed with cheese, the rooster in wine sauce served with Greek pasta, perch fillet à la Spetsiota, or a variety platter of specially grilled meats. Reservations are essential for the rooftop garden with the famed Acropolis view.
