While strollingin the evening by the Hadrian Library we walked by Exfaris where Mr. Kostas started a small chat with us. Anyone who wants to go into sales should learn from him . His sales pitch was amazing. He asked us where we were from, for how long he were staying , told us about the health benefits of greek... More

The street "go getter" is a legend and will go down in Greek folklore. As for the food...... Top notch, couldn't fault it. And free dessert so you can't beat that....... opa!

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
