Rosebud with cigarette smoke - Edit

I have eaten there 1 time, and it will not become more.
Food was of uneven quality. Some good, some not so. Long waiting times. Worse; people smoked inside even though staff had told us it was forbidden! Greeks lust for smoking is a disease which they will force you to co-have with you. Sad and shameful conduct to smoke indoors when it's not allowed. Staff did nothing to prevent the smokers from smoking as they were probably smokers themselves. Sad indeed.

Outrageously good - Edit

Fantastic place for a more special dinner. We had artichoke dumplings and mushrums and plums in wine souce with sweet potatoes puree. Food was simply fantastic. We also enjoyed the wine selection. Chocolate tempetation desert was purely delicious.
Service was also great.
High quality place, well worth a visit.

Pros: Great food, Nice place, pricey but worth it

Great place! - Edit

I love Rosebud! It's really your only option in Athens for a more sophisticated vegan/vegetarian dining experience, and luckily, it does the job well.

They have different theme nights, such as vegan sushi night or last week's Dirty Vegan, which offered a selection of street food from around the world. The menu is a bit strange in that is has gourmet cuisine such as lentil mousse tarts next to a vegan hotdog, but I guess there's something for everyone that way and it's all delicious! The food is global with a heavy emphasis on the Mediterranean. They normally have two vegan options for dessert so you should save room.

The atmosphere is funky yet chic, and there is a full bar with a good selection of wine. It's really not expensive at all considering the quality of food and the neighborhood it's in.

I recommend Rosebud to anyone looking for a more gourmet vegetarian experience in Athens. It's definitely a good way to charm a veggie date.

Pros: food, theme nights, atmosphere

Cons: sometimes difficult to get a reservation

Pricey, but the Best Food in Athens! - Edit

When I went to Rosebud I had their dumplings paired with some white wine and the vegan cheesecake for dessert.

It was all awesome! Fabulously delicious!!!

The staff was friendly and the atmosphere hip. Definitely an "it" spot for vegans in Athens.

If you want to have a nice night out, you cannot beat Rosebud.

UPDATE: I went back again and had the hotdog/sausage with potato shavings and was blown away once again. Simply the best food in Athens. Even though this is not a completely vegan place, and even though Trivoli has the friendliest staff, and even though the prices are a higher than so many other vegan places, I still give this place the top rating for tastiness of food. I will have to go back one more time before I leave just to try another dish.

Fantastic restaurant with various vegan options - Edit

I definitely recommend this place. Although pricey, they offer a very good variety of vegan dishes. They can veganise almost anything so do not hesitate to ask them to veganise something that is presented as vegetarian on the menu. The staff could have been a little bit kinder but the food makes up for everything. Try vegan gyros souvlaki.... mmmmm loving it !!!

Pros: variety, flexibility, option

Cons: staff (only in 1 occasion though)

Don't miss it! - Edit

Wonderful and creative dishes by my favorite green-chef Nikos Gaitanos! A bit pricey, especially the salads, but offers enough vegan options, the environment is cosy and staff is friendly.
A restaurant worth visiting even if you are not a vegetarian/vegan.

Pros: located in the center of Athens, excellent food

Cons: pricey

Made us sooooo happening! - Edit

This is more than a "café bar" as the description says. Its a restaurant. Its a very good restaurant. My husband had the great mushroom burger served with delicous roasted potatoes and a salad with a great vinaigrette.
I had "dubbings" which I think was ment to be spelled "dumplings". Tasty anyhow and filled with mild fenchel. Loved it!
Friendly staff also.

Pros: Both fine dining and "junk food", vig portions

Loved it! - Edit

Finally a good, high quality vegan place in Athens. Doesn't compare to the rest at all - it's much better!
Service was great, food was tasty and was made by themselves, not store bought. Flavour was good, but could be better, that's the only reason I gave 4 stars and not 5. I recommend to go there anyway.

Pros: High quality, fair prices, tasty food

Best Vegan Pizza! - Edit

A fantastic restaurant with a good selection of Vegan dishes. I ordered their Vegan Pizza; topped with Tofu cheese, mushrooms and favabean-sausage and was astonished by how tasty the meal was! Each bite was a celebration of my senses. High quality food in a relaxing atmosphere. The waiters were very attentive to my table regularly filling my water without request and I enjoyed a nice conversation with one about the history of the restaurant.
After my meal a complimentary desert was served; a traditional greek sweet called 'Vanilla Submarine' (vanilla fondant on a teaspoon dunked in cold water)

Overall, I would highly recommend Rosebud, the prices are a little steeper than I'm used to but were totally justified by the taste and quality of the food served.

Pros: Nice location, Top of the range food, Considerate staff

Outstanding! - Edit

My boyfriend and I ate here tonight (last night of a week long trip to Greece) and it was definitely our favourite meal of the week. We ate at a few of the other places listed on Happy Cow for Athens and this meal was far an away the best. Between us we ate sushi, a curry and a burger along with a dessert. All of them were delicious. The service was good and far more attentive than we experienced elsewhere in Greece (constantly topping up our water without being asked for example).

I can highly recommend this place based on what we experienced.

Pros: Delicious food, Vegan dishes clearly marked, Good service

good eats. - Edit

The food is good. the staff is great. has some good vegan options. I tried to order a dish with pesto which said could be vegan. luckily I had a wonderful waiter/cook who informed me that pesto has cheese and offered to make a different vegan sauce for me. definitely worth eating here.

Pretty sure they gave me dairy - Edit

Even though we specified for everything to come as the vegan option, I think there was cheese on my burger and dairy yogurt in the gyro. Just generally a haphazard overpriced place.

I would go back to Greece just to eat at Rosebud - Edit

I would go back to Athens just to go back to Rosebud.

I found Rosebud towards the end of my trip b/c I mistakenly thought it was a little too far from where I stayed in the beginning. It's out of the tourist area but not far at all. And once I went there, I went each remaining day of my trip.

The souvlaki is a must! The fresh juice is amazing. The staff was super friendly. And they even gave me a traditional submarine spoon treat at the end. I didn't find the prices high (as some other posts have said). About 10 euro for the souvlaki, fries and juice. Would have been twice as much in the US.

Pros: Vegan options clearly marked, Outside seating, Nice vibe

Cons: Not in main area, if you don't venture

The best of Athens! - Edit

You can not go to Athens and miss this place! Soo friendly staff, the restaurant itself is nice, and the food is absolutely amazing. We had the hummus entry, which was wonderful! And the veggie-burger was the best vegan burger I have ever had, I almost cried while eating it. My fiancé ate the pizza, which also was delicious! This was the favorite restaurant on our weekend in Athens.

Delicious Food on our first night in Athens! - Edit

My partner and I arrived in Greece today and were originally going to try out the Vegetarian Restaurant 'Avocado' - but it was closed early because its Sunday so we found 'Rosebud'.

We ordered a bead and dip starter (I can't remember what it was called - but it said it was traditionally greek) and it was delicious. We ran out of bread and still had dip remaining so they brought us free bread and free olives - we have just spent a month in Turkey and my boyfriend said these olives were better than any we tried in Turkey! (and we loved the Turkish olives!).

We both ordered fresh juices - mine was the seasonal, and my partner had banana & mint. For mains he ordered the pumpkin almond ravioli (not vegan - he absolutely loved it! He was practically licking the plate clean!) and I ordered the Thai Turmeric Coconut Curry - it was so delicious! It had mixed vegetables, chickpeas and a delicious sauce, served with rice.

The staff were lovely and even gave us a free shot of oozo! I was pretty keen to try a raw vegan dessert - but unfortunately they were all out of vegan desserts so my partner ordered a chocolate cheesecake - which was actually listed as 'chocolate pastry' - so not at all what we expected when it arrived, but he said it was pretty delicious nonetheless.

The only con's I can find is that there were no vegan desserts left and also it was fairly expensive (we are not sure if this is normal prices for Greece as it was our first meal here - however it is more than double the price of all the restaurants we went to in Turkey so we found it to be very expensive.

Would definitely go back! :)

Pros: Food, Ambience, Staff, location, food :)

Cons: No vegan dessert, Expensive
