Happy Donkey Elefsina

Very close to the Greek capital, you can enjoy incredible dishes in a unique environment.

Elefsina, about half an hour from the centre of Athens, was one of the cultural capitals of Europe for 2023. It is also an excellent choice for food and drink, especially for those who love the combination of antiquity and modern industry.

Below are some places worth visiting:

Rakoyn

It has a rather inappropriate name for a tsipouradiko, but that should not discourage you from visiting as it has tasty appetisers served by a very kind staff and a wide variety of tsipouro. Meat eaters, try the lamb tortilla.

It's a common secret for the locals but perhaps surprising for those who don't know that there is also an excellent Mexican-inspired restaurant in an industrial and colourful space in Elefsina.

Here, you will eat Quesadillas, chimichangas, fajitas, tacos, burritos, and burgers and, of course, drink tequila-based cocktails.

We recommend that you visit on a day with good weather and light so that you can enjoy, beyond the food, the view of the archaeological site of Elefsina. The brisket is singled out, while the restaurant's other specialities are the delicious salads.
