First Review by LoriVro

I guess I was expecting more... - Edit

I ordered a mushroom burguer with potatoes. The potatoes were not very good, the bigger ones were a tad undercooked and flavorless. The bread was ok, I would have liked it more if it didn’t crumble all over me. The actual burguer was quite nice, but overall not a dish bursting with flavors. If I went there again would only be to order something else. Price ok considering the claims of ingredients being bio.

Pros: healthy, ok range of vegan products

Cons: misleading name since it’s NOT 100% vegan, not very flavorful , how can someone make potato chips so disappointing

Good food and atmosphere - Edit

I like the food and I also like the fact that it is almost fully vegan. I dont like the use of plastic, tho (coffee cups, straws, etc). They have sunday brunch and also special nights that are always fully vegan.

Some of the best vegan food Greece has to offer. - Edit

When I was reading reviews of Healthy Bites I was a bit concerned by some of the negative reviews. After several visits I now see that these reviews are unfounded.
This place has the best quality/value ratio for organic/vegan food in Athens.

In addition there is a nice dining space, great waitstaff, fresh inspired traditional interpretations of Greek vegan recipes.
Chef Nikos` restaurant is over 80% vegan, organic, and it is well flavored.

This place is not a tourist trap, I found mostly locals enjoying a meal. If you are a foodie and wish to sample some of the best vegan food Greece has to offer, this is your place.

Pros: Organic, Fresh & Tasty, Chef Nikos Greek vegan recipes

Quick lunch - Edit

I can across this place randomly when I was planning to take the metro and stopped for a quick lunch as I saw vegan organic written in big bold letters at the front. I was quite disappointed to see that the place is vegetarian with a few vegan options. I had a 3.5e lentils pie that was tasty but quite oily and a 5.5e green juice that I didn't finish as there were way to much celery fibers in the last quarter of the glass.

Pros: location , friendly staff, many food options

Cons: the upstairs sitting area is charmless , my green juice had not one but 2 plastic straws..., very loud music from the radio so you also get the

ok for a quick bite - Edit

We ordered some of the sandwiches. Not much range in terms of the vegan options and I'm not a massive fan of fake meat. The food we did order was OK but we didn't eat there again during our 5 day stay in Athens.

Pros: the food was all labelled.

Cons: limited vegan options

vegankitten 04 Nov 2017 - Healthy Bites restaurant is over 80% vegan, organic, and there is a large range of traditional Greek recipes. I personally spoke with Chef Nikos and he confirmed the restaurant is over 80% vegan and organic.

Great for a quick bite - Edit

This new place in Athens offers several vegan dishes and salads for a quick bite. It's not an actual restaurant so don't expect too much, but there is outdoor seating, and despite the fact that it's on Panepistimiou street it's not too loud in the early evening.
They close a bit early (9pm), but they told us that this might change now during the summer.
I had a moussaka which was really good (I'd been missing moussaka since going vegan) as well as several vegan salads as they prepared a selection of them for us.
A really great option if you're in the center and want to grab something to eat real quick. The service was great as well.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Friendly staff, Decent prices

Cons: Closes a bit early

Tasty but not all fresh - Edit

Healthy Bites is a curious hybrid of healthy-food and fast-food paradigms. The menu offers an interesting variety of options, but all the food is precooked, cafeteria-style, The sign advertises their food as "organic + vegan," so I was a bit disappointed to discover that most of the items available were not vegan (most of it is lacto-vegetarian), but at least the vegan items are marked as such in the display cases.

My meal was flavorful enough, but the "fresh" carrot juice I ordered wasn't fresh at all: it had been sitting long enough for the solids to separate from the liquid, and for the flavors and sugars to change significantly enough that I didn't enjoy it.

Service was warm and very helpful.

My only complaint is about freshness: Healthy Bites would be much better (and healthier!) if the food (and juices) were made to order.

Sofarebel 17 May 2017 - Dear sir, thank you for your review but things are not exactly like that, it's true that we are not 100% vegan, in pies and sandwiches is 50/50 and in hot food about 90% of our food is vegan, we prepare all of our food daily and serve to our customers fresh, of course we keep it warm in the bain marie we are a deli not a restaurant and we serve home cooking food, if let's say we prepare moussaka by order you will have to wait about two hours to eat your food.... As for the juices we prepare them by order in front of the customers we have a open bar, if there was a problem with yours you should told us and we will be more than happy to replace it for you!
Thank you again, we took everything you said under consideration, we are a new place (less than a month) and for sure there's lot's of room for improvement!!!
