Athens, Greece may be more known for being the cradle of western civilization and birthplace of democracy but we think the food is the most important attraction in the city! Greek food is honestly some of the best food you'll ever eat and the Greek capital has an incredible variety of different spots for you to try out. We spent a week in Athens eating all the delicious food it has to offer and we thought we'd share our top 10 restaurants in Athens that we enjoyed the most during our stay here. From mouthwatering Greek meats, to-die-for gyros, and pitas, to comforting taverna classic and delectable Greek desserts, the Greek capital has something for everyone to enjoy!

This is not a definitive Greek food guide but merely a reflection of our own experience but we do hope this video may still be useful to you. Local knowledge is still the best knowledge!

Enjoy!
