This is a very cute spot located in the heart of Athens, near Syntagma Square. The Three Mushroom Risotto is delicious. I ate here more than once and will definitely return.

My husband and I were in Athens for four days recently and were surprised at the prospect of a 'vegie' place in the city. What was more of a revelation was, the fact that it was only five minutes around the corner from our hotel near the Syntagma Square. The atmosphere of Avocado was very relaxed and friendly with a refreshingly light and modern decor. The staff and owner were always welcoming and the service and good humoured banter from the waiters was great - it made us feel right at home.
I would have eaten at Avocado for every meal but we were on a budget although having said that, the prices are not expensive, so what did we sample? We both tried the forest burger with it's delicious patty, the falafel starter with it's wonderful tahini-lemon sauce and a Dahl soup. Our last night was a mini feast and we had some lovely organic wine, a mushroom risotto with its yummy cream sauce, a tofu, rice and vegetable dish and a scrumptious piece of carrot cake. The dishes were all incredibly healthy and tasty with subtle flavours complementing all of the ingredients, The presentation was good too.
Like another reviewer, I wish we could have an Avocado vegetarian/vegan place in our city. Go and try it, we hope you wont be disappointed.

The soups that we had were absolutely great and so was the dark bread. Too bad it was closed for the New Year's day. The owner, Maria, is very friendly and is very helpful with everything we asked her for - directions, advice, etc. Great little place with natural food, nice relaxed atmosphere and a great service!

Our favorite place in Athens. Wish they would open one in Denver. Everything we tried was perfectly fabulous. From the smoothie with beets to the bootay-kickin' carrot cake. The guacamole was flawless, as were the soups, veggie burgers and salads. I would eat here every day if I lived in Athens. Just so danged good.
