Daphne's, Athens

4 Lysikratos Street
Greece 10558
Tel: 30 210 322 7971's insider take:

If you are a famous foreigner, or like to imagine that people think you are, this is one of the places you'll eat in Athens. The setting, in a restored neoclassical villa, including an interior garden, in the otherwise gastronomically challenged Plaka area, is attractive, and the food, a mix of traditional and nouvelle Greek, is excellent. (To get off to a happy start, try meatballs in ouzo-laced tomato sauce.) Many of Daphne's diners are so eager to see and be seen down in the garden area that the few tables out front, which are considered to be the least socially desirable, have some of the best views of the Parthenon in Athens. So luckily you'll be seated here if you show up on a weekend without a reservation.

Open daily 7:30 pm to 1 am.
