Pagrati is a lively yet modest residential area where you get to enjoy typical Athenian life. It is also a great food destination if you are looking for a change from your usual eateries. Few tourists venture into the area, though they should, as it’s a colorful neighborhood. Here’s a small guide to the top restaurants to try out in Pagrati.


Open since 1972, Mouries is a renovated tavern/mezedopoleio where you can eat mezes (tapas-style portions of food), in a relaxed and simple atmosphere. The staff is friendly and accommodating and the food is delicious. Don’t expect anything fancy or pricey, this is perfect for a cool night out with your paréa or group of friends. If the weather allows for it, dine al fresco at one of their tables on the square.

If you are on the lookout for the best burger in the area, then head to Colibri. This food joint is perfect for a hearty meal. And even though it serves a mean, juicy burger, don’t limit yourself there. The pizzas are huge and delicious, and the pasta (the one with garlic and tomato sauce is sublime) is served al dente, just as it ought to be. Easily crowded, Colibri serves great portions for the price and is also great for drinks.

Go for the ultimate gourmet dining experience. Spondi, a two Michelin-starred restaurant, is perfect for a romantic dinner or for an upscale dinner with friends. Highly praised throughout town, but also all over the country (and for good reason), Spondi is a delightful place where you can sample creative and innovative Mediterranean haute cuisine by the hands of chef Aggelos Landos. Oh, and the restaurant has one of the best wine cellars in town. You’re welcome.

O Mavros Gatos

O Mavros Gatos is a regular neighborhood tavern where you can enjoy great food at a great price. The menu is excellent but make sure to ask what the dishes of the day are. The place has a few specialties, such as their traditional Greek pies, made with homemade filo dough. As far as the drinks are concerned, the raki is a must, and have a look at the wine menu as it features excellent bottles from Arcadia. Welcome to Old Athens guys.

Mystic Pizza

Located close to the Panathenaic Stadium, Mystic Pizza is considered as a healthy pizza joint (the menu comes with a calorie count for each item) where you get to sample vegetarian options, gluten-free pizzas and other waistline-friendly and dietary-sensitive dishes. The Mystic Bio Green pizza is particularly tasty and filling, but make sure to leave some room for their scrumptious cheesecake.
