All those great thinkers had to eat somewhere, you know. Okay, the magnificent places that make up the best restaurants in Athens in 2022 obviously weren’t around when Plato, Aristotle, Socrates and the rest were doing their thing, but that isn’t going to stop us from drawing lines from thought to stomach. After all, eating as much as humanly possible is one of the very best things to do in all of Greece. The capital is home to some wonderful restaurants, delicious and charming in equal measure, spread across the many neighbourhoods of Athens.
You’ll find everything from greasy kebabs to high-end gastronomic opulence, so don’t worry about preferences. If you want tradition, you’ll find it in spades, but the long tradition of innovation is very much alive here too. You can’t really go wrong. Work up an appetite by seeing the sights and then settle in for the meal of a lifetime.
