nice for a treat - Edit

This restaurant was great. The food was amazing. Service could be a little slow at times, it does get busy. Quite pricey so we only ate here when we felt like spoiling ourselves.

Pros: great selection for vegans

Cons: expensive

Cosy atmosphere, delicious food - Edit

We got to the restaurant at 9pm and we had to wait a little because of the many guests, so we got a "pillow seats" table - which was very cosy! The staff was friendly and helpful. We got pasta and burger and ordered a side, but we shouldn't have because the portions are big! The food was very delicious and we almost didn't wait for it.

Pros: Tasty vegetarian food, large portions

Lord Have Mercy - Edit

Athens has been amazing for a vegan. This place in particular is just perfect. I ordered the Chickpea Kimchi Wrap...if Arphodites was in food form, I'm sure she would taste like that. The fresh juice is to die for. The service is great and the girl at the bar definitely had a crush on me.

Pros: Vegan mania

Cons: There isn't more locations around the galaxy.

I wish there was one of these in every town! - Edit

Had an instant feeling of good vibes at Avocado, greeted by friendly, welcoming, interested staff. Amazing food. We visited several times and worked our way through most of the vegan dishes. Huge portions, fresh and tasty. The smoothies were a meal in themselves, and the falafels were awesome. Can't recommend this place enough, whether you are vegan or veggie you cannot possibly be disappointed! Can't wait to go back!

Pros: Instant friendly vibe, Amazing food, Huge portions

10/10 - Edit

I love coming to this place, the food is amazing.
I've eaten in loads of vegan restaurants but this is one of the best.

I've seen some people complain about the prices but you got to factor in the ingredients they use and understand that they are mostly organic, locally produced (vegan) products which have a higher price. The prices are totally fair for the kind of produce and food you get.

Pros: Luminous Vegan, Avocado Burger and Vegan Paella, Service

Cons: NONE

Nice place - Edit

We order a starter and two plates.

The starter was a plate of grilled vegetables with some foccacia.

Then I took a pizza (vibrant vegan) and my girlfriend took a noodles plate (atma hari noodles).

Everything was great and we were full.

It's a little pricey for Athens.

The service and the food were great.

We definitely recommend it!

Pros: the choice of plates, the staff

Cons: the price

Amazing place - Edit

Many people seem to find Avocado to be overrated, but what makes this place special are two things:

1) The atmosphere and the design are really nice. You can sit on floor pillows on the first floor which makes for a really intimate and cozy atmosphere.
Downstairs it is always full, but it never feels loud or crowded. It definitely attracts lots of tourists due to its central location, but that makes Avocado more international.

2) The service is the best service you can get in Athens. The owner is an Iranian who spent many years of his life in the US, so he has brought this excellent service mentality to Avocado. If you're not Greek you will notice that many restaurants in Athens offer subpar service, and Avocado is the place that will restore your faith in the level of politeness of people.

The food is very good, and there are lots of vegan options. I understand that it may not be the most exciting menu in the world, but it's pretty good by Athenian standards.

As for the prices, I hope people understand that renting a two-storey place in such a central location and paying electricity, water, and decent wages to one's staff does not come free. At the end of the day, the owner has to make a living as well.

Pros: Best service in Athens, Great atmosphere, Very good vegan options

Great! - Edit

This is a great restaurant with a lot of different options.
I took the burger on my first visit which was very good but a bit hard to eat. Although I was expecting more since it was thier "signature" dish. For me it was a quite regular burger.

Second visit I tried one of the noodle dishes with peanut and almond sauce. Also very good but I put a lot of extra salt on.

Also I was so happy to have a nice cuppucino with soymilk :)

Pros: big menu

Cons: pricey

Loved it!! - Edit

I'm so glad I found this in Athens! I highly recommend this restaurant.
4/5 taste
3/5 price vs quantity/quality
5/5 ambiance and location
5/5 presentation and creativity
I had the tofu/rice and the curry noodles. I thought the curry noodles were excellent!!! I wasn't really that impressed with the tofu/rice bowl. So I would recommend selecting a diff dish. Everything else looked super tasty. And the vegan milkshake was soooo good! Make sure to try it!

Totally lived up to expectations! - Edit

I really don't need to say more. This place was amazing, fantastically fresh food, lots of vegan option, perfect lunch spot that even omnis would enjoy.

The Herb Garden salad was lovely, and my Omni SO had the Avocado Burger (veggie burger) and said it was fantastic! If I keep bringing him to places like this, he may decide to embrace the veg!

Pros: fresh food, lovely atmosphere

Cons: pricier

I had lunch here few times. Was awesome! Full of flavors and huge portion. I tasted my boyfriend's noodles with peanut sauce, it was our least favorite stuff in the menu. But everything else is awesome! Great service, with english speaking staff and cozy seating upstairs.

TOP! - Edit

BEST ONE!

Avocado is simply the best vegetarian with vegan options place to eat in town.
You cannot find better taste! I have tried most of the vegan places in Athens since I live here but Avocado is the best.

Great smoothies, great food, awesome atmosphere!
It's located in Syntagma, the main square, and it has 2 floors. If you sit upstairs you sit on the floor, they have some cushions and little tables. It's a little bit pricey, maybe due to the location or the top ingredients they use to make their food but it's worth it.

If it wasn't so expensive I would definitely go there more often.

Thank you!

Pros: Best Food!, Vegan options, Smoothies

Cons: Price

Great food - Edit

I orderd the avocado burger and it was delicious! It was very big and I made a mess trying to eat it but it was worth it. I also got a carrot juice that was amazing and sweet! My dad got an amazing rice dish called luminus vegan that was also very delicious! overall a graet experience!

Healthy Food in Hefty Portions - Edit

Avocado is a great little place, which serves good food... in hefty portions.

Their menu reads like something non-vegan: burgers, pizza, pastas, etc. Which is one thing I really like about them.

However, I have found the fare to be hit or miss. Some things are really tasty, like the burgers, while others are not to be ordered again, like the hummus... which isn't even hummus.

The staff are friendly and the food is a bit expensive, though if you are into healthy food, then this place is a must.

I prefer vegan junk food, myself, and would therefore make an effort to go somewhere else. Yet in a time of need Avocado would do very nicely.

I recommend going to Avocado, whereas you never know if something will tickle your fancy by reading someone else's review. Avocado is a great place.

Pros: Great location, Some options are yummy, Friendly staff

Cons: Pricey, Their hummus is NOT hummus, Food tries too hard to be healthy

Tasty, but pricey! - Edit

Should've taken a look at the $ sign before going because it is indeed PRETTY pricey. Other than that, tastes great & noticed quality ingredients. If you are traveling on a budget, it would not be wise to eat here.

Healthy, tasty and pricey (but worth it!) - Edit

Although heard about, we did our best to came today with no real expectations, although hoped to like the place since we apperantly took an airbnb apartment one minute from the place.

Atmosphere is really good, service is professional and pleasent, place is cute, menu is quite long and interesting.food was nice, accurate to its long description.

We took a panini burger with special WF bread that was quite okay, a bowl of brown rice, ginger and rich goodness and an apple pie that was not a good desert I am afraid. in average I personally was a bit dissapointed in comparison with the prices of the highly creative excellent raw materials dishes.We will try again in search of better options in this place, potential is most definitely there.

Second visit - a very nice and big vegan pizza w/Avocado (!) was a real surprise. The raw avocado-cocoa cake was a real masterpiece. Enjoyed the second evening a lot.

Today we came again - took a dish of vegan burger with Avocado, a nice spicy curry dish and a cake we did not like that was replaced easily by the exceptionally excellent raw cake from visit number two.

Overall - very good service, great food, worth the price.
