Fodor's Expert Review The Old Taverna of Psarra

$$ Plaka Seafood

Founded way back in 1898, this is one of the few remaining Plaka tavernas serving reliably good food with excellent Acropolis views. In recent years, however, the restaurant has spread itself a little thin and become over-touristy so it doesn't draw the same crowd of locals as in the past. Simple, tasty entrées include rooster in wine sauce, arnaki pilino (lamb baked in clay pots), and pork chops with ouzo. Can't make up your mind? Try the ouzokatastasi ("ouzo situation"), a plate of tidbits to nibble while you decide.
