About Palaia ithaki

    Finding good food in downtown Athens may be easy. The choices are endless, What is objectively difficult, is to come back to over and over again at  the same restaurant. One of the few restaurants in Plaka that does this is Old Ithaca. For more than 30 years, they have been choosing the best ingredients from all over Greece and our chefs create delicious dishes combining traditional Greek cuisine with contemporary trends. They impress both Greeks and foreign visitors and the positive reviews follow one another.

    You will find Old Ithaca on Agia Filothei Street and at number 2 and you should be ready for a hearty and unforgettable meal. You can start with their homonymous salad, traditional pumpkins, a piece of spinach or grilled sardines. After all, all my favorite Greek recipes are here, from dolmas to pastitsio. If you are a meat lover, you may be unhappy with dishes such as lamb chops and veal.

    In the end, the Old Ithaca restaurant in Plaka, besides the food, specializes in fine wine, with a rich list of the best choices from the Greek vineyard, which will ideally accompany your meal.
