This restaurant was one of my favorites in Athens by far, with better Egyptian food than anything I'd eaten in Egypt (their kusherie was spectacular). They also were in a gorgeous old building. When I tried going back a few days ago, they were closed....More

Tucked away and yes, difficult to find, but worth it. Excellent service, friendly and good food. Based on a recent review, hope it hasn't closed down.

Great place to eat Greek food. We tried the Baba Ganoush, Falafel, the mutton and the kofta. All were mouthwatering dishes!! Even my 6 year old pick eater gave a 2 thumbs up! The reception lady was very courteous with a wonderful smile!

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

best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as
