The Restaurant

Daphne’s, conveniently situated in historic Plaka, and in close proximity to the Acropolis, is the meeting place of two worlds; Pompei, a Greek city of the remote antiquity, on one hand, and on the other, the typical Athenian courtyard, with more than one thousand years history, still evident all around it. In fact it is the exact spot where Lord Byron drew inspiration, during his stay at the adjacent Capuccine monastery.
