Family-Friendly Places To Eat In Athens
Families with children know the struggle of finding a restaurant perfect for the whole family all too well. Finding the right combination of child-friendly food and dishes that will please adults' palates is not as easy as it may sound. Read on to find restaurant recommendations that the whole family will love.


Restaurants serving peinirli–a boat-shaped pizza dough specialty packed with cheese and other tasty fillings, baked in a wood-fired oven and topped with butter– have always been a popular choice for Sunday lunch with kids. The forested northern suburb of Drosia is famous for its peinirli restaurants, and Elefteriadis is one of our favorites. Eleftheriadis has a large garden shaded with pine trees for sunny days and an indoor area with a fireplace and large windows that's lovely for winter days!

Ama Lachei Stis Nefeleis

Shaded with fragrant lemon trees, jasmine, and bougainvillea, the courtyard of this long-standing taverna in used to be a schoolyard. The restaurant's modern Greek cuisine is simple but delicious, with lots of delicious vegetarian options, including many kinds of cheese from all over Greece. The delicious meatballs – crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside– are a great kid-friendly meal! The Cretan cheese pies with honey and mint are a favorite dish, and so are the hand-cut fries! 
There's plenty of indoor seating, and smoking is strictly prohibited.
