Restaurants in Thissio

The name, taken from the Orphic Hymns, means “one who loves inspiration,” and it’s easy to feel inspired on the roof garden of Filistron, with what is arguably Athens’s best view of the illuminated Acropolis and Mount Lycabettus—without the corresponding high prices.

At this casually chic whitewashed gem, on pedestrian-only Adrianou Street opposite the train tracks in front of the Thisseion temple, the menu changes with the season—and it’s presented on a gorgeously designed poster incorporating photos, doodles, and poems.
