Although vegans can eat at Liondi, I don’t recommend you do. It’s not that the restaurant is bad – it isn’t. It’s just that there are other more tasty and less expensive options for Greek dining in Athens.
Do not be fooled by their large vegetarian menu, there are very few vegan options. Gemista, a very typical Greek dish consisting of a stuffed pepper and tomato with rice, was the best vegan option they offered. So thats what I had. Paired with a side Greek salad (sans cheese), there was more than enough food to last 2 meals. The gamiest was delicious, cooked full of flavor and served with a side of Greek potatoes (yum!). The salad lacked spices and thus flavor, when compared to Greek salads elsewhere in Athens.
