Take the time to visit this tavern-opened in 1919, enjoy the granma's cuisine and the wines: they come from the neighborood with empty bottles to fill them up from the barrell... My husband (Greek) and I (Italian) live in Athens and have been here several times: never came out disappointed! Off the beaten paths of the bochic Exarchia, pay attention... More

This is really the last original Greek Tavern. The food is family food, the traditional Greek meals. This tavern has a life of more than a century, almost unchanged, except to comply with present day requirements. It is a historical tavern.

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).
