Enjoy classic Greek cuisine in a restaurant in Monastiraki, a neighborhood that offers a historical setting for your lunch. The panoramic drive there will set the stage for your immersion into traditional Greek life as you will pass landmarks such as Hadrian’s Arch and the Temple of Olympian Zeus. As an introduction to Monastiraki, you will pause to snap photos at its namesake square in the shadow of the iconic Acropolis. Monastiraki means “small monastery,” a reference to the one built there in Ottoman times, the remains of which still exist. After settling in at Savvas tavern, you will be treated to a lunch of traditional Greek dishes and a spectacular view of the Acropolis. Still, it is the cuisine that makes the experience so memorable. Kebabs from a traditional Asia Minor recipe, pork souvlaki and moussaka with homemade béchamel sauce are but a few of the dishes at Savvas.
