Wonderful - Edit

Went here last night and had an amazing time. Staff were all lovely friendly with very good English. We were advised against getting the falafel as a starter which we were confused about because we wanted to try it but the waiter seemed to think it was too much food for us.. even though we would have eaten it! But the food we did get was amazing, the 'Mother Earth' spinach tart was particularly incredible. Got a green juice which was delicious and a really good sized portion too for the price! Would love to go back again and try more from the menu. Recommend to vegans veggies and omnivores alike

Favorite Restaurant in Athens - Edit

We have been here the last two nights, and will probably visit again. A lot of vegan options, friendly staff and nice atmosphere. The upstairs area has cool low tables with cushions to sit on the floor, and there are also outdoor tables. Highly recommend the crispy tofu entree! Other favorites include the vegan pizza and the yellow curry dish.

Pros: Lots of options , Healthy , Cool vibe

Délicieux et copieux - Edit

Enfin un restaurant à Athènes où on peu manger vegan sans être dérangé par des odeurs de poissons comme dans d'autres restaurants qui se disent "végétariens". C'est très bon et copieux. En plus l'accueil est très bien, et la facture aussi.

Pros: Really vegan dishes, excellent, situation

Cons: no

so many choices - Edit

This restaurant was busy when we got there which is always a good sign. We were greeted by the friendly staff and offered water straight away while we waited for our table. So many vegan choices, we couldn't finish our meal as we may have over ordered with excitement. The staff happily put our paella in a take away box!

Pros: Lots of healthy choices, friendly staff

Cons: busy at weekends

Amazing! I'm so glad I found this place - Edit

As I visit Athens very often, I get so happy when I discover new vegetarian/vegan places to go to! There is such a wide variety of things to eat there and everything we had was delicious. This place is very cosy and for good prices. There are not many seating places but this makes service faster and more "personal" as the waiters make sure every now and then that we are enjoying our visit.

Pros: Many options

Cons: Too few outdoor seating

So nice I went there twice! - Edit

I ate at 3 veggie/vegan places whilst staying in Greece. All amazing but this one was mine and my husbands fave. I had the avocado burger (vegan) and my god that peanut sauce was damn good. The burger is huuuuge so come hungry! They do wheat free bread and beer too! We went back for lunch a few days later and I had to try the sushi rolls which were delicious and they soy sauce was gluten free too! I washed it down with pink me up lemonade smoothie which was really nice too! They do takeaway so we ordered the wheat free vegan pizza to munch on later! The staff are really nice too!

Pros: Yummy, big portions for good price, Gluten free and vegan options, Lovely staff

Cons: No cons

Must try!! - Edit

We ordered the 'luminous vegan' and 'rubi's dream' and both menus were extremely good. The staff was very polite and helpful and inside is a nice atmosphere. I think the prices are really okay for the good quality of food you get (between 10 and 15€ per meal). We also had the Avocado chocolate cake. It was very good but we where glad, that we shared it, because it was very filling and rich. We hope to be able to visit this place again. Definitely recommend!!

Pros: Many vegan options, Fresh ingredients , Near city center

disappointment - Edit

It seems that vegetarian resturant is "tricky" for vegan people. I ordered veggi burger (the vegan version of course) without tomato. The burger came out with tomato and cheese. After they replace the portion, it came out with no tomato, but with cheese again! I notice that when I ate half of it 🙁 silly me, I though that that kind of resteraunt have more consciousness about the vegan ideology.

Cons: mostly for vegetarian

omg! deliciousness! - Edit

I rarely give 5 stars but from the first bite I knew this place deserves it!
I had the rainbow vegetables with tofu, honestly didn't take enough money with me to order more stuff but I would have loved to try their desserts and salads!
Service was great and I didn't wait much for the food :)
If I stayed in Athens longer I literally would've gone every day to have more of their items!
GO THERE!

Pros: delicious, easy to find, good location, so many options

Cons: pricey

Didn't live up to the hype - Edit

We had a nice entree of a piece of spinach pie/quiche, but the "Avocado Burger" which is apparently a signature dish was pretty average - it was big, but a bit dry and boring. Perhaps other food on the menu is better?

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
