This is an excellent Greek restaurant, frequented by locals due to their fabulous cuisine, great service and quality ambiance. The food is Greek but with enough variation to keep it interesting, not just the same "old same old" that you get in most other tavernas. It is just down the street from Syntagma Square, right in the heart of the city, perfect to plan into a day of sightseeing.Recommended for:Foodies

The name of the restaurant means the Ant and the Cricket, the name of one of Aesop's fables. And the restaurant is similarly folksy--but because it's in the center of Athens, about a block and a half from Syntagma (on Mitropoleos), it's also a bit slick and modern...in a good way. The food is very particular, fresh regional Greek specialties--a lot of uncommon dishes, but also some typical stuff, like rusk-and-tomato salad, but even that is plated in a creative way. The interior is styled like a village store--lots of shelves with groceries on display. This is a great find in a difficult part of town for nice restaurants. Oh, and it does not hurt at all that they pour you free shots of raki before you even order!
