Kallisti gefsis offers excellent flavors, reasonable prices, central location and all these in an artistic, interesting setting. The service is immaculate and the wine selection, although not vast, definitely interesting. We tried 4 dishes and they were all superb. Worth visiting for a culinary night out...

Nice greek cuisine, often times very creative, with good quality ingredients. The wine list is not big. It has some good selections of mostly Greek wines. Service is very... More

Very nice greek food and only greek wines from all the Greece,but Timos Petrides is not there anymore to help. I think is a new restaurant with young people and nice atmosfere. The menu is small but you can find interesting thinks.

A very nice place to try Greek plates cooked in a most delicate way.. Try it and ask from Timos Petridis to suggest you a wine..

Staying in Exarchia

Neighbourhood Profile
Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret, discovered by relatively few international visitors. Located behind the main University and Polytechnic buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students, intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as its most alternative bars and underground music venues. You'll find political bookshops and quirky stores here, yet it is also a neighborhood inhabited by families and older folk. On Saturdays, punks and grandmothers alike head for Kallidromiou Street, nestled below Strefi Hill, to pick up fresh produce at the traditional laiki agora (street market).
