You will feel right at home at Spiti (which literally means ‘home’). With a variety of Mediterranean and Greek dishes on its menu, Spiti serves excellent amongst its stunning décor. Don’t expect moussaka or souvlaki, and opt for the salmon risotto or shrimp tagliatelle instead. While you’re at it, have a look at the wine menu but don’t skimp on dessert (the panna cotta is definitely worth a try).

This vegan/vegetarian/gluten-free restaurant is the long-awaited restaurant for all the vegetarians living in the southern suburbs of Athens. Yi (which means Earth) is a bright and spacious restaurant where you can truly taste everything good the earth has to offer. The zucchini noodles with pesto is to die for and the banana cake is a winner (though it seems the cheesecake is another hit dessert). Yi is an excellent restaurant to prove that a vegetarian diet can be much more than just salad.

Meat eaters unite. Mouu Quality Meats is a steakhouse where nice beef cuts are cooked perfectly. The side dishes (wasabi rice and grilled vegetables, quinoa salad, and more) are pretty tasty as well. And though the whole dining experience may be a splurge, it is a dinner you won’t easily forget.
