“Very calming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

A very attractive vegetarian restaurant with interesting and tasty dishes. It was quite busy but excellent service and staff. A very relaxing and pleasant experience after the busyness of other areas of Plaka and around the Acropolis. The food was excellent: guacamole, mushroom Sawah and vegetarian putanesca. We will go again before we leave Athens.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is probably the best vegetarian rest. in Athens. Very nice food and smoothies. Small outside veranda and stylish interior.

“Tiny but excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

When we walked up to the restaurant, it did not look like much at all. We almost kept walking, but we decided to give it a try, and I'm glad we did. It is a small place and it is so packed with tables, it is difficult just getting through. But the atmosphere is pleasant, with positive quotes and inspirational messages, and the menu has many surprises. It was difficult deciding what to order because it all looked so good. Everything that we ate was delicious, and the cost could not have been better. It is a great value. Finding vegetarian options in Greece is not difficult, but if you are looking for vegan or just want to try something different, this is the place. It is in a convenient location so it is easy to find, but you might want to reserve a table on the weekends.

“Breathe of Fresh Air”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

After many days in Athens, we were delighted to find Avacodo. The decor is bright, and modern. The menu had many options. We chose a salad over quinoa, delicious paninis, and fresh juice drinks. It is one of the few restraunts in Greece where a family of vegans, vegetarians, carnivores and gluten free eaters can all be accomodated. We love Greek cuisine, but this gave us a delicious break.
