Brilliant place to eat in Monastiraki. We went there the first evening and enjoyed it thoroughly, so we went back for more the following evening. Mohammad and the guys are great hosts. They made us feel right at home. The food is brilliant. The Greek music is great. Overall great value. A must visit when in Athens. Well done guys.... More

Our first visit to Athens and came across this restaurant during our sightseeing. What a delight. Venue is amazing with a beautiful cool garden setting out the back and lots of tables for diners. Food was amazing and so,so tasty. Portions very generous. I would dine here every day of my holiday given half a chance! Highly recommend.

There are tons of Greek restaurants but drop by Efxaris for something more than expected. It's close by the Agora Forum and a few steps away from the crowded square. We found this piece of gem after going down from the Acropolis Hill. The positives: water is free and immediately served. For the same price offered as other restaurants, we... More

The first time that I passed this restaurant across from Hadrian's Library, I had just eaten, so I did not go in. The second time, the man at the door convinced me to come in. He remembered me from a couple of days before. I told him that I wanted to try moussaka and he said that I had come... More

They have a small patio inside. It's quite cozy and nice. Service was good and tasty Greek dishes as you can see on my pic. This fish plate for 2 persons was EUR22. It's more than 2 person's volume! Live traditional Greek music show was excellent, too.

We visited this restaurant twice during our vacation in Athens, We ordered meat variety and seafood variety. Both of them are very huge in size!! We were extremely full. The owner of the restaurant was very nice making us warm. I will definitely visit this restaurant again if I come back.

I visited Efxaris twice during my visit in Greece. Located in Plaka, its a hidden gem, food was great both time, the guys make you fill totally at home and were always very welcoming. Try eating in the indoor patio, very cool!

It's my first time here in Athens. A friend of mine brought me to "Efxaris" and I was really satisfied with everything. Our waiter was really polite and friendly. The things we ordered were also quite good (pork gyros portion, dolmades, saganaki and Crete dakos). I would say that I love going there, the whole atmosphere is so Greek.
