We went in there to escape the snow, yes it DID snow in Athens February 10th! And we were glad we picked this restaurant. Lovely decoration, good food, and I particularly fell in love with the beautiful artistic paper place mats they had. So much that the waiter gave me 5 of them with different drawings! And now they are... More

This is a restaurant in a touristy area, even though locals use it. The food is correct, but do not expect anything creative or of higher quality in terms of taste. It is average good, but not great. It does the trick for an unpretentious lunch in Athens. The portions are generous, so you can share. The prices are OK,... More

Our cruise ship was docked near Athens one day in late Sept 2014, and we were a group of 10 on a long, hot Athens semi private tour. We had survived the 100 degree heat on the brutal climb up to the Acropolis, and to many other wonderful sites. Our tour guide brought us to this area for a break... More

Efcharis in ancient Greek means that which is pleasing or what pleases.A very good variety of breakfasts,coffee,juices,snacks,authentic Greek and Mediterranean cuisine and house wine are always ready for you.Staff is very friendly and really fast.They also have Turkish menu.This is one of the good options in the centre to eat all day long at reasonable price level.

Once we discovered this place we didn't go anywhere else. Delicious food, huge portions, good house wine and they are generous when it comes to giving free cake, ouzo and Raki! Excellent value for money. Great atmosphere. Clientele mainly Greek - we were the only foreigners every night. Different band playing Greek music every night. Locals singing and up dancing.... More

Located at Adrianou Street, where plenty of restaurants are located, you might find it difficult to chose one. Efcharis proved to be a good choice. We sat in the patio inside to avoid the crowd outside Service was friendly, food was good, I would like to highlight and recommend the lamb in the oven (wrapped with paper), it was butter-soft...
