This was a great experience. The restaurant is in a garden at the end of a lane off a bustling square in Plaka, meaning you have to look for it - no one grabs at you. We ate in the garden, but the indoor restaurant also looked inviting. The music (live music advertised on weekends) is modern Greek popular music, from what I could tell, very conducive to enjoying dinner and conversation. The staff is helpful and friendly. The menu and specials are very comprehensive and go far beyond the usual suspects, making it extremely difficult to decide what to eat.
Favorite Dish: I had seafood crepes for a starter followed by leg of lamb with potatoes cooked in a ceramic pot. The sauce in the crepes was extremely tasty. The lamb was cooked to perfection, falling off the bone and melting in the mouth. Very good all around.
This restaurant is located in an interior courtyard giving it a quiet tranquil setting. The elegant indoor dinning room has huge windows overlooking an interior courtyard that doubles as the restaurant’s outdoor dinning area. The courtyard location makes this restaurant quiet and intimate. The food was excellent and moderately priced. Dinner for four adults with starters, main courses, desert and house wine was just over 100 euros. The service was prompt and attentive. We selected this restaurant to return to a second time with friends.
Favorite Dish: Veal Hermion is a traditional slow cooked veal stew that was tender and flavorful. I also had pasta in a light cream sauce that I am still trying to duplicate at home.
This is was one of the best Restaurants we have ever been to. The food was outstanding. Hermion is located near the Mitropolis Cathedral in Athens. Located of a small secluded garden off the pedestrian walkway in the Plaka (OLD TOWN)
The food here is not worth the fancy price. You are paying for a linen tablecloth and stemware, not for better food. The courtyard is quite nice. It's not the "special" kind of place it bills itself as, be warned.
