Sunday in Monastiraki – Ouzou Melathron3 comments May 16th, 2010 | By Tobias | Category: Out in Athens
When you get to Monastiraki you have to try Ouzou Melathron. It is one of my favorite places to eat. It is an Ouzo place and serves lots of Meze dishes, but it also has nice main courses. Ouzou Melathron is reasonably priced which means that a meal is 20.- to 25.- Euros per person. The people working there are friendly and chatty and enjoy what they are doing. The atmosphere is good. Having gone there a lot throughout the years I can say that the quality is good and steady.
Usually you arrive with the Metro in Monastiraki. So this is where our little excursion starts. This is the view up Athinas street where it crosses with Ermou Street. Further up on Athinas is the big central market, but that is another excursion.
This is the view over the Plateia Monastiraki towards the Akropolis. This square is buzzing with people every day.
Finally we have reached the end of our little walk, the Ouzou Melathron . Not far but much more quiet that on Adrianou street. Here it is nice and quiet and they serve lots of delicious things.
