Fodor's Expert Review Aegli Zappiou
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 or chill out at this landmark café. Sharing the same premises, a chic, full-service restaurant is a must during summer with its beautiful garden—shady in daytime, beautifully lighted at night. The food has a modern Greek touch but also some Continental influences, and it offers excellent value for money. The menu includes everything from a traditional Greek salad and Cretan spinach pie to roasted pork knuckle and a steak with béarnaise. After dinner, have a drink and listen to the latest grooves at the bar. Reservations are recommended for dinner in the summer.
