Fodor's Expert Review Strofi

$$ Makriyianni Greek Fodor's Choice

It's the place where the likes of Rudolph Nureyev, Maria Callas, and Elizabeth Taylor dined after performances at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus nearby, and its walls are lined with images attesting to its glamorous past. Once a humble taverna with a fantastic Acropolis view, its current modernist renovated version and simple traditional Greek menu are still pleasing to tourists and politicians alike. 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. For the main course, there's roast lamb wrapped in vine leaves and stuffed with cheese, rooster served with Greek pasta, or a variety platter of specially grilled meats.
