3 Great Tavernas in Athens Center

Visiting the Greek capital of Athens and looking to soak up some local culture and cuisine? Try one of the city’s tavernas!

Taverne Klimataria

A beautiful tavern which is located just near the Greek capital central marketplace. It is operating in the same location since 1925—a fact that the lovely owner Maria takes great pride in. The main specialty is homemade food, including roasting big chunks of meat in clay pots for long hours. The result is absolutely amazing. On the weekend, you can listen to live music as well.
