Athens is a restaurant town with many faces. The best food is usually the simplest, expressed in down-and-dirty truly Greek cooking. The city has grown from one where the corner taverna and souvlaki joint reined supreme to one filled with ethnic foods from every corner of the globe to haute mush, as I like to call the babel of international cuisine that has neither a border nor a personality. In DineOutAthens you'll find my opinionated take on this city's restaurants, tavernas and more. For close to 20 years now I have been reviewing restaurants for Athens largest circulation daily, Ta Nea.
A word on tips: The tip is part of the bill in Greece, but most people usually leave about 10% in addition to the bill. Small places often don't take credit cards.
