Most People visiting Athens Old Olympic Stadium never venture up the narrow staircase to the far left of the Stadium (as you face it). It’s a shame, since those who do will be rewarded with the chance to walk along one of my favorite hidden streets in Athens. The path that starts when you reach the top of the stairs offers an interesting tour through Athens architectural history:  Here a quintessentially Greek Cycladic home exists adjacent to post war multi-family 2 flats, elegant 80’s buildings neighbor charming neo-classical single family homes (there’s even a Cat house – ruled by a large orange and white Tabby).  The road isn’t too long, as it dead ends at Archimidous street and it’s here you’ll find a beautifully restored neoclassical home that now houses the Greek restaurant, Ep Avli.

Whether you dine inside one of the former homes’ parlors or on the terrace roof garden, a meal here usually starts with a complimentary meze, perhaps a homemade lentil salad or a

Before you order they serve a small treat, usually a salad with lentil which is absolutely tasteful and suitable as a starter. Then I would suggest you order one of the handmade pies and the tenderloin with katiki (a soft cheese) and dried tomatoes, it is my favorite! All the dishes and appetizers are tasty and valued for money. The service is very friendly.

The terrace has view toward Ardittos Hill and it is the idyllic place to get some cool air during the long, hot summer nights. But in the winter the terrace is covered so that you can still have that outdoor feeling indoors …
