Klimataria Athens – Vines downtown?

restaurants
Restaurants

"Klimataria" in Athens is one of the oldest taverns in the city and takes its name from the vine leaves that adorn it. Live music on Sundays!

...not exactly. However you will find vines in this tavern. It was a common practice to have vines covering the roofs of yards in order to create a rich shadow during the summer. You will definitely still see that on your walks around the island villages & towns.

Klimataria is one of the oldest taverns in the city center, staying unchanged throughout the years. The wine barrels are still decorating the place, the food is typical Greek/Athenian cuisine, the people range from old to young, from whole families to young couples and joyful groups of friends.

Visit Klimataria for a Sunday lunch and you will have some great food and an extra taste of a typical, Greek family Sunday meal. There is also live Greek music on Sundays for an extra € 3 per person and some dancing might take place - you know the original thing, not the one with smashing plates and dancers dressed in black & white. On your way in, take notice of the 3 "Dutch ovens" that cook some of the most delicious dishes of Klimataria.

Enjoy!
