Mezes beyond words

Why locals love it
Wide variety of special top quality delicacies from the greek countryside, right in the heart of the centre, in an old neoclassic building: it doesn't really get any better! You can either buy from the delicassies displayed in the vitrine or sit at one of the surrounding tables and try their amazing soutzouki, pastourma and other mezedes.
Why you should visit it
If you find yourself in the Monastiraki-Omonoia area just turn around the corner at Evripidou street and get away from the hustle. You can enjoy traditional dishes and original recipes from the eastern-byzantine greek culinairy tradition in a space that revives the atmosphere of the old food shops of athens at a very low cost per person.
You cannot reserve a table for before 6pm. It gets quite crowded in the weekends, so prefer a mid-week day.
