A hidden yard
Why locals love it
This yard is only known to the locals. Even if you pass by it, you won't notice it. Behind a blue door, there is a narrow corridor which leads to a graphical yard. The place is very traditional and takes you back to Greece of the 50's. Painted white and blue, with a few tables, greek music and wine, it looks like nothing you've seen.
Why you should visit it
For those who don't have the time to visit the islands, Avli offers a taste of them right in the center of Athens. It is always full of life and the food and drinks are quite cheap. The two characteristics that make this place so special is authenticity and simplicity.
"Poikilia" is a dish with a variety of food in it. It's nothing fancy, but tasty, cheap and filling. Share it with your friends while drinking "raki".
