Mani Mani: cuisine of the Peloponnese


In Greek, Mani means ‘Magne', a peninsula south of the Peloponnese. If this restaurant is called ‘Mani Mani' it is because one enjoys this cuisine twice as much.

You climb the stairs of an old doctor's house to sit at a table in a bistro atmosphere and suddenly, magically, you are no longer in Athens. The kitchen here has accents of southern Greece.

The menu offers dishes typical of that region, like beans with Magne sausage and orange or a yellow pea salad and dried figs, but also homemade pasta, accompanied by dried tomatoes, basil, fennel, and chicken. Everything is delicious, tasty, and fragrant, so you'll undoubtedly ask the chef for a particular recipe. If you go for lunch, remember you are in Greece and restaurants open late.

In this case, not until 2:30 pm.
