The picture-perfect Psaras Taverna is living proof that romance isn't dead - even if it is just a taverna, it's certainly stolen our heart. Originally opening its doors in 1898, there are two reasons why we're feasting at this local favourite. Firstly, the menu is a mix of Greek meets Italian - think: Lobster spaghetti and olive-oil dressed salads. Secondly, it has one of the most dazzling al fresco set-ups Athens has to offer - one with tables set on the steps alongside the neoclassical building which, on warm evenings, are covered in candles. Gaze upon the blood-orange sunset while helping yourself to a fresh glass from an enormous carafe.
