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

Huge portion! - Edit

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.

Don't miss out on this - Edit

Amazing food, amazing service, always full. This resturant is famous for a reason. The food is incredible - creative dishes and fresh ingedients. The cook even came out to ask how we wanted our dish prepared cause it wasn't vegan on the menu but we wanted to share and I'm vegan. The pink me up lemonade is delicious and the cakes are to die for. Went back for a second time because we loved it so much.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, creative and fresh dishes, impeccable service

Cons: a bit on the expensive side (but still ok)

Food made with love - Edit

This restaurant is more expensive then the other veg restaurants in the area but it's a step above and worth the visit. The staff are super friendly and knowledgable (all fluent in English) and the plates are unique and prepared with love. I ordered The Herb Garden Salad and as a salad enthusiast I can be hard to impress. This impressed. The flavours are incredible and work amazingly together! Also shared the Avocado Raw Chocolate Tart - to die for if you're a chocolate lover! Would definitely eat that again.

Pros: Love goes into the food

Amazing food! - Edit

I came here with my meat eating friends and they loved it and so did I! Their juices are really good and fresh! I liked their apple juice the most. From the food I would recommend Rumi's dream but ask to leave out the yogurt. The staff is really nice and it's located near the centre. I hope you come here because it's amazing.

Pros: Fast service, Great location, Amazing food

Nice surprise - Edit

Having read some good reviews about Avocado, I decides to try it on a friday night. The restaurant was almost full and i had no reservation, so i was offered a seat upstairs, where the tables are really low and you sit on the floor on some pillows, which was perfectly fine. The restaurant looks relatively nice, but nothing too special, until you open the menu and it's like that cave Alladin finds in the movie!
Didnt know what to chose, everything looked incredible and the guests around me were equally happy.
Super!

Pros: Menu, Location, Staff

Cons: Decor could be a bit nicer

It's vegetarians heaven (with plenty of vegan options too).

Pros: Great food, Plenty if choice, Relaxed and cozy environment

Local pequeño pero muy acogedor , en la terraza se estaba genial.

Ojalá pueda volver algún día!

Central restaurant - Edit

Given the difficulty of finding a restaurant with vegan options in Athens we went to Avocado. By not having reservations we had to wait about 20 minutes to get a table, I imagine it will be because of its central location. The service was correct, despite being saturated. A leafy green salad with avocado and apple it was plenty of cilantro and some lacked avocado and apple but it was tasty, rice with coconut milk and vegetables was very tasty and the apple pie was very good. I can not get used to the Greek tradition of bringing you the bill in the middle of the food.

Pros: Good taste, Situation

Cons: Price, Reservation

Outstanding: Best vegan food in Athens - Edit

I ate in this restaurant at least four times for dinner and weekend brunch and I loved their food. Needless to say, avocado was present in almost every dish. Coming from California I appreciated it. Vegan options are plenty and very tasty. My favorites were the Macro plate and a rice with mushrooms and avocado sauce. Both were very original and tasty.

Pros: Food, Customer service, location

Cons: None
