As a vegetarian living in Malta I don't get much choice for vegetarian restaurants, so for an overnight stay in Athens between flights we searched on here for options. This place did not disappoint. The pink me up lemonade was delicious and the food was really tasty and filling. Staff were friendly and polite and service was good. Totally recommend!!

A cozy yet tastefully done paradise for vegetarians and health conscious in the heart of Syntagma Square. The elegant and simple decor radiates a warmth that compliments the fresh and delectable dishes. We visited it 5 times in 3 days says a lot. The black rice noodles, falafel with pita, freshly prepared mocktails and variety of teas are a must... More

Vegetarian restaurant located between Syntagma Square and the Plaka. Even though I am not a vegetarian, I thought the food was good and the price was reasonable. (The Avocado Burger was my favorite) We ate there several times since the restaurant was convenient to the apartment we were staying in. The restaurant was generally crowded but the service was good... More

DON'T EAT HERE!!!!! Worst food I've had during 3 weeks in Europe, to add insult to injury, after paying a ridiculous 17 Eur for dinner, I ended up with severe food poisoning. I'm writing this review from my hotel bed, which I haven't been able to leave for more than 48 hours. Avocado completely ruined my visit to Athens, I... More

Being a (+-) vegetarian there are not many places that offer not yet known menues for me. This place on the other hand had a great choice of delicious sounding plates. Despite of our already high expectations, this food was simply amazing. Combined with the cozy atmosphere (sitting on the cushions on the upper floor) and the super friendly service... More

The restaurant has an unconventional menu. They add a creative twist to well knows dishes. Nice atmosphere and staff. The food was great, I had eggplant rolls stuffed with 4 or 5 cheeses. Price is ok. Can get quite busy in the evening, might wanna consider reservation, however even if you have to wait it moves fast.

I'm not particularly a vegan or vegetarian but this small and cozy place surprised me. You have plenty of options to chose from, food is delicious and the portions are really generous! To top it up, staff delivers great service! Recommended!

Great place. I'm adventurous eater but not mad about vegan. It sounds boring. Well I was so wrong. I got the Spanish eyes omelette. It was amazing. I got a second it was that good. Came back another day and had the mobster burger. Brilliant. I licked the plate clean!

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
