Greece Tourist Traps: 89 reviews and 46 photos

  being in traditional restaurants

Avoid places and restaurants (especially in Plaka) that you see only tourists.Especially when a smiling waiter pulls you inside!!! Try to find the places where the greek young people go and are full without waiters' effort. They are more sophisticated, more authentic with better quality of food and additionally, they have better prices!

Unique Suggestions: If you are in a touristic place and you cannot find a place that locals eat, try to find a restaurant that has enough customers, and ask for the menu list before you order, to see the prices. Then have a look around you to other tables, and order what seems fresh and nice to you! :)
