Hello Marie. In Athens I liked the Eden vegetarian restaurant, located in the western Plaka (at the north side of the Acropolis), walking distance from Monastiraki METRO station. I think people do not need to eat shrimp at every meal. Many restaurants and eateries in Athens have noise and stress. The Eden restaurant is peaceful, high class, but not extremely expensive. Athens is a very noisy and very stressful city, therefore I appreciated the peaceful environment in the Eden restaurant. The restaurants and tavernas in Monastiraki do not have very good food, it is snack food. I think the Plaka is over rated. I do not recommend spending much time (or money) there.
