Fodor's Greek Islands
Aegli Zappiou Review
The lush Zappeion Gardens have always been a tranquil green oasis for stressed-out Athenians, who head here to gaze at the distant views of the Parthenon and Temple of Olympian Zeus, catch an open-air cinema showing, or chill out at the landmark café Aegli Zappiou. Sharing the same premises as the café, this chic restaurant is luring fashionables, business people, and even families. It is a must during summer with its beautiful garden—shady in daytime, beautifully lighted at night. The food has a modern Greek touch, and it offers excellent value for money. Try the take on traditional local dishes as the Greek salad, fried zucchini balls, or the kebabs. The meat platter is another excellent choice. After dinner, have a drink and listen to the latest grooves at the Aegli bar. Reservations are recommended for dinner in the summer.
