“Nice local food!”
Review of Armolia - CLOSED

Nice local food, cosy place, I loved the vintage decoration. Fast service, gentle people. Food: what we eat was delicious. A great fresh salad, fried chopped zucchinis, mushrooms, extremely delicious grilled cheese, nice wine. The only reason I did not rate 5 stars is that the meat we had was not so good. Other than that, everything was great and we will go again.
Reasonable prices.

It's a common concept in Greece called mezedopoleio (tidbits store). You order many small plates with tidbits to accompany your beer, wine ouzo etc. The offer main courses of course, but a variety of small plates is more fun.

It's a great concept but unfortunately I've seen much better versions than the specific restaurant.

Food is rather typical. Materials seem fresh and well cooked but there is a definite lack of personality. It is indifferent by a Greek's standards.

Not very cheap for what it offers also. But in Chalandri, which is a pretty interesting neighborhood, there are so many places to eat and really few that have the right attitude, for someone who loves original food.

I have been at the restaurant at least ten times. Just went today for very late lunch at 16:40. There were at least 15 tables available, we were two people and were standing in front a 4-seat table. Gentleman working at Armolia comes up and asks "how many people" we say "two" and he goes like "either here, here or here" showing the only three tables (out the 15) with two chairs. I felt offended and left immediately by saying "perhaps another time" but to be honest i will never go again. To be fair the food is pretty good, but the business includes service as well.

Located in Central Halandri Square, it's an honest, clean mezedes restaurant with kind staff (although sometimes slow at peak times). Big variety, some courses need improvement but the management is always there to hear and take all new initiatives needed. The inside decor is also lovely like an old small grocery with replicas of little old food brands and little bottles of ouzo and tsipouro. If more places in Athens were like it, surely visitors would have a much better view of Greek "mezedopoleion" (the equivalent of "tapas bar") concept.

Armoulia in Chalandri is a good local restaurant specialising in Chios food. Good fish choice, (the cuttlefish in black rice was pretty good). Starters of Fava with spring onions, tiny whitebait, ‘zucchini keftethes….grated courgette rolled and fried, kofta, squid with sauce etc etc all delicious. Didn’t pay the bill but I think it’s more than reasonable. It is not a super comfortable place, more a local eatery which, if you lived nearby you’d visit again and again.
