I've been a lot of times in this pub-restaurant with my husband during our holiday in Greece. We are both vegan and we found a great variety of vegan food. We tried most of the dishes in the menu and we always enjoyed it; above all we enjoyed the uncheesecake made with cashews: it was very creamy and soft. I can't eat soy, and here I found many dishes made with other legumes: chickpeas, pinto beans, fava beans, lentils... I appreciated also the greek salad with almond feta cheese.
The restaurant is nice and the staff is very friendly; they played very good music on the stereo (especially classical rock).
I would recommend this place to any veg*an in Athens.

Terribly slow service for food that was not worth the wait. The falafel plate we ordered arrived a half hour after others in our group got their food and was nothing more than what you'd get at any fast-food shawarma takeout. Not sure what the fuss about this place is out, especially given all the choices in Athens for a good meal with good service.

We specifically called before to check they served brunch but when we arrived they said they had no brunch menu. When we queried it, we were presented with a menu with most items missing. Upon ordering, the first item took half an hour to come. Then one dish per person (there were 12 of us) arrived every half hour with no apology from the waitress for the outrageous delay while she served other tables first. Food less than average. Service appalling.

Dear w0rldlywise,
I am one of the owners at improV. I have arrived soon after you left and looked into the issue.

This day we received a very unusual amount of volume for Sunday at a time working with a new cook (in training). That said, it is unacceptable that this delay was not communicated to you as it only takes seconds to apologize or to communicate a delay.

I personally apologize very much for that unpleasant experience. It is vey unusual for this to happen as you can see with our other scores. Although sometimes it is challenging to satisfy %100 of the time as unavoidable issues can delay, your review was helpful.

Regards,

Sean Patrick Shanahan

Service here is super warm and friendly and the food is delicious. We had the vegetarian pot pie and the crust was to die for. Falafel, vegetarian gyro (seitan), salad, and fava bean dip were all absolutely delectable. Will definitely return.
