New Feature!



Melilotos used to be in Xenofontos str, from where they made daily delivery of homemade meals, until recently when they moved to Kalamiotou very close to Kapnikarea square in downtown Athens, with their very own restaurant. Mama¢s kitchen is still the main point, with fresh ingredients and tasty selections which change every day. Salmon in the oven, moussakas with spinach and besciamel with yoghurt, cockerel with homemade pasta, and traditional sweet cherry preserve for dessert. Must tries are the macrobiotic salad, and the healthy soups with nettle, pumpkin, ginger and coconut milk, or in the summer months tomato soup with cool cucumber, mint and yoghurt.

Reviews and Ratings

    WHAT I Liked:

    The dishes were very creative and they use lots of fresh, local ingredients. The sardines were great, as well as our appetizers: Fried feta with watermelon, ouzo and tomato tapenade and local eggplant with aromatic yogurt. Prices were reasonable too.

    WHAT I Disliked:

    Everything was wonderful except for my salad! It was bordering on salad soup as it was totally over-dressed, and quite soggy :-( This is unfortunate as it was a great combination of flavors/ingredients.
