Athens: modern Greek meat bites at Rack & Roll

Athens: modern Greek meat bites at Rack & Roll

If you want to Rock & Roll, all you have to do is to visit “Rack & Roll” in Athens. This modern Greek restaurant is located in Keratsini and it really rolls with its flavors. Friends of mine introduced this restaurant as something really interesting because of the modern touch one can find in the Greek dishes. And they were right!

The menu list is not so extensive, but is really interesting. Everything served here is really Greek - mainly meat- but with a modern twist.

During our visit we ordered the all–time classic Dakos salad, the very interesting and so delicious kritharoto with beetroots and mozzarella cheese, simple burger with fried potatoes, sausage with orange sauce,  pork with fresh herbs, egg tartar and raki was the drink that accompanied our lunch. Worthy to mention that all dishes were so loaded that you wonder if you can make it!

As the restaurant interiors are small and cosy, it comes as no surprise that it's highly recommended during the winter days and nights. The decoration is simple and inspired by pure Greece and the music too, given with a folk twist.  The staff is friendly, welcomes you, recommends dishes, their service is fast and the chef often comes out of the kitchen and circles around the tables to feel the pulse of the guests.

Some hints about the restaurant are the following:

  • Make a reservation before your visit. It opens at 13:00 and it’s always full!
  • Best way to reach “Rack & Roll” is always by car. The restaurant doesn’t provide any parking space, but the area around is very easy for it
  • Visit the restaurant with an empty stomach. You'll definitely want to taste everything that you read in the menu list!
