aktaion restaurant in Firostefani

Aktaion Restaurant is located on the small central plaza on the pedestrian walkway near many of the best hotels in Firostefani.

Aktaion has been a staple in Firostefani for almost 100 years! The 3rd generation of the family is now running the place. Tables spill out onto the sidewalk in a very charming and casual environment. Traditional Greek food on the menu includes seafood, meat and vegetarian options. A great choice for lunch or dinner. As it’s a small place and gets busy, reservations are recommended.
