“Ama Laxei on Kallidromiou is also a local favourite. With an outdoor courtyard that is always packed in the summer, as well as a vibrant indoor space, this historic spot is an essential Exarchia bucket list. Serving up a range of traditional Greek cuisine, the menu is a flawless mix of delicious meze and succulent meat plates. If you’re in a big group make sure to book in advance.”

Gastropub
“This is oposite our main entrance. All think of Mama Roux when it comes to a carefree Sunday brunch with friends in the always happening center of Athens. The last few years Mama Roux has been a big hit among cool Athenians looking for some London or Berlin-like place to have brunch, lunch or dinner in a bohemian cafeteria-style restaurant with international (both French & middle-eastern) cuisine. It was even listed among the Trip Advisor’s best.”

“We have tried pretty much everything and I can't find anything we disliked. Furthermore, the place has something that makes you forget that you are in the middle of Athens. Service is great. The place is always vibrant so finding a place to sit won't always be easy. Parking is also at a premium in the area!”
