Empty restaurant food nice but service lacking!

Considering the place was empty the service was rather unattentive. However the food was nice, reasonably priced and tasty. A bit different from the usual Greek fare.

Excellent food, nice ambience, great service. We always eat here once when in Athens, and it never disappoints. Good variety of tapas and other items, all fresh and tasty.

The food (especially the chocolate cake with ice cream) was really good. Service was excellent and we had a nice dinner here after visiting Sir Locks Escape Room.

This is among best places to be in Athens! A little culinary heaven! Try the goat cheese wrapped in jamon w/caramelized pears, meatbealls, hummus, shrimps in almonds...! They have a beautiful list of wines as well! The staff is extremely friendly! Do not miss this unique experience!

An employee at our hotel said she really liked this place and recommended we go. The food was very good, but we ended up accidentally getting a bunch of fried foods because it wasn't labeled on the menu. I ordered the chicken burrito, which was great, but i wasn't expecting in deep fried. I also ordered the almond shrimp, very... More

Salero has kept its quality since it opened some years ago. Spanish and Mediterranean oriented it offers a really great variety of plates in very good quality and prices and in large portions, especially the main courses. No wonder why it is always crowded. During the summer an open air backyard offers a fresh alternative of sitting.

I ate tapas with grilled chicken skewers and peanut butter, risotto with porcini mushrooms, white wine in a parmesan cheese bowl, patty of ground beef with wild mushroom sauce and french fries. As a dessert we had catalana cream which is the same as crème brulée - love it.

Staying in Exarchia

Neighborhood Profile
Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret, discovered by relatively few international visitors. Located behind the main University and Polytechnic buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students, intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as its most alternative bars and underground music venues. You'll find political bookshops and quirky stores here, yet it is also a neighborhood inhabited by families and older folk. On Saturdays, punks and grandmothers alike head for Kallidromiou Street, nestled below Strefi Hill, to pick up fresh produce at the traditional laiki agora (street market).
