I discovered this place using TA, and I'm so happy I visited! The food is not only excellent but also reasonably priced. There are plenty of choices to try, and the quality was so good, I went back a 2nd night. The beer menu is hand picked and in its own right it deserves multiple visits. Also, as I was... More

We managed to eat here 3 times on our trip! Too bad we didn't make it 5! Love the atmosphere and friendliness of the staff. But more importantly our purpose was to get through this diverse menu of VEGAN dishes in such a style that can fit any mood. (either super healthy mood or even burgers!!) We tried 3 of... More

I have visited this restaurant several times and every time is better that the previous! The food is absolutely amazing. Our friendly hostess Dimitra is very helpful on explaining what each dish is and has put her heart into making each one more special that the next one. There are several starters (don's miss the humus and chick pee meatballs)... More

ImproV is a very welcome addition to the food scene in Athens, offering an enticing mix of healthy creative cuisine and Greek and American comfort food. Its menu is diverse enough to offer something for just about everyone. We especially liked the Rocket Salad with strawberries, and omnivores should be pleased with the seitan gyro. But ImproV's crowning achievement is... More

Staying in Psirri / Gazi

Neighborhood Profile
Psirri / Gazi
Side-by-side neighborhoods Psirri and Gazi provide some of the city’s prime nightlife. The almost claustrophobic streets of Psirri feature an interesting blend of original small businesses with the restaurants, cafés and bars that have recently sprouted up. The central artery of Agion Anargiron Street has lively places to eat or drink. Further west, you can visit the peaceful ancient cemetery of Keramikos, then cross busy Pireos Street to find yourself in Gazi. With the huge Technopolis performance and art complex converted from old gasworks at its heart, you really have to come at night to appreciate this maze of bars at its best, although a daytime stroll will allow you to admire the excellent street art.
