Daphne's, Athens

4 Lysikratous
Athens, 10558, Greece
TEL: 30-210-322-7971

Just a short walk from the Acropolis in the historic neighborhood of Plaka, this gourmet Greek restaurant is located in a restored Neoclassical house dating from the 1830's. Inside, the earth-toned dining room is decorated with terracotta accents and Pompeii-style frescoes, while the partially covered garden patio contains a rustic stone wall, a vine-covered wooden canopy, and the remains of an ancient marble building. Popular with visiting celebrities and politicians (former guests include Hillary Clinton and Jeremy Irons), Daphne's serves such specialties as fried prawns with toasted almonds, and rabbit stew with Mavrodaphne (sweet wine) sauce.

Insider Tip:

Be aware that the restaurant's outdoor seating borders that of the neighboring café, where the servers will likely vie for your patronage. Clearly request a Daphne's table to avoid confusion.
