Athens Food Guide

Athens Food Guide
You’ll be fully prepared for your Greek culinary adventures with our Athens Food Guide! The Greek capital is a top destination for many reasons, but a big one is the food! Greek food is world renowned, and we want you to taste the best Athens has to offer, so read on for our Athens food guide!
Athens Food Guide

Gyros & Souvlaki

This is for the meat lovers! Gyros & Souvlaki are the most famous items from the Greek kitchen, and you can find them all over Athens! But what’s the difference between the two? We’ll easily break it down for you here:

  • Gyros (pronouced yee-ros if you want to try your hand at Greek!) is a mixture of meats, cooked on a rotating skewer.
  • Souvlaki is either chicken or lamb, is cooked on a skewer and served with pita bread.

Now that we have that cleared up, you probably want to know where to find the best gyros! Check out Bairaktaris Taverna in Monastiraki for the most delicious experience!

And for the best Souvlaki, we recommend Kalamaki Bar– famous for their locally sourced ingredients!


You haven’t had a proper meal in Athens until you’ve had some fresh seafood! Of course you can find plenty of seafood IN the city, but places near the water are always a bit more ideal! We recommend Margaro if you want the ultimate seafood experience in Athens! A visit here requires patience however, as the place is always full! But that’s a pretty universal sign the food is irresistible, isn’t it?! Our favourites include shrimp, grilled octopus, fried squid, and mussels!

Olives & Feta

As per tradition, no Greek meal should begin without a Greek salad topped with feta cheese and Kalamata olives. This is a light yet tasty precursor to the culinary Hellenic tour you’ll take over the course of your meal!

Snack time

Athens is a rather big city with tons of things to see and do, so you’re bound to get a bit peckish between meals. The Greek love their coffees, and have a variety of ways for you to enjoy it! A hot coffee in the dead of summer isn’t always the most appetising, so the Greeks have created several versions of cold coffee! We recommend trying a Frappe or a Freddo for your java fix!

Drinks (alcohol)

As you’ve probably already figured out, every country in Europe has that one drink thats near and dear to their culture – and in Athens, they have two! Ouzo and Raki are the most famous and traditional of all liquors in Greece, so we recommend trying them both. But if you’re not a fan of anise or fennel (basically that black liquorice taste) maybe it’s best to try something else. Greece is also home to an array of delicious wines and beers, so if you’re not a Raki or Ouzo fan, no problem!

Athens Food Guide

And that’s our Athens Food Guide! We’re fairly confident you should have no issues filling yourself up with delicious foods & drinks while in the Greek capital. If you’re looking for more information on this destination, check out ‘More About Destination‘ tab on our Athens page!

And if you’re looking for a place to stay in Athens, we only recommend the best, so book AthenStyle Hostel and enjoy their amazing rooftop bar!
