Delightfully friendly staff and delicious food make this an easy choice. Lots of vegetarian/vegan options - the fatoush was so good, with pomegranate syrup! Also the tabouli was great, the falafel was great, the Thai noodles were great. We've been 3 times in 3 days!

This was quite a surprise! The menu is quite diverse offering both local dishes and mexican dishes. You can't go wrong, the dishes we had ( meza sampler, burrito) were delicious and full of flavour. A must if looking for some fusion food in Athens.
