Ama Lachei is easily one of the most picturesque restaurants in Exarchia, if not Athens itself. You’ll find it as you walk through Kallidromiou street with Mt. Lycabettus on your back, just before the street’s dramatic downhill turn. Follow the steps down and enter the most wonderful and welcoming courtyard.
The present-day restaurant is actually housed in an old elementary school, as referenced by a number of drawings in its walls, and still holds that old neighbourhood aura about it. And as far as the food goes, it won’t let you down. You’ll find many traditional Greek favourite snacks and dishes, most revamped with a modern and creative look in their presentation.
All in all, Ama Lachei is one of those places that keep you coming back for more; super easy if you’re staying at our Top Stays Nine‘ flat, as you’ll only be just two minutes away!
