On a Wednesday evening of June, after a very long day at work, a friend invited me to go out with him to a beer garden in Neos Kosmos, an area I barely ever visit but the factors of beer and garden made me curious to go out and discover it. My instinct was right!
Svejk is a Czech – Slovak beer house with the true feeling of a Czech traditional pub on the inside and a lovely Athenian garden on the outside. It’s ideal for summer beer drinking or a cold winter feast.
The variety in beers is huge, including bottled and some rare finds in draft beers. The food is also very tasty and very fat. The menu is a heaven of fried dishes which can only be consumed with the help of a large glass of draft beer. I like the fried cheese, fried potatoes with cheese and the schnitzel. The pork shank is a speciality, and it’s perfect if you are more than 3 people and order a couple more dishes to share.
Even though it is a very well hidden place, its reputation is big, so reserving a table is advisable.
If you are a beer person then you just found one of the best beer places in Athens. Enjoy!
