Just a few meters from the intersection of Fragon and Leontos Sofou street, you will notice a small alley, the Veroias street which was recently regenerated as part of a major urban regeneration project. At the corner of Veroias and Irodou Attikou, there is a charming and lonely restaurant called Maitr & Margarita, labeled as a bistrot. The fresh industrial design intrigues you to go inside and see what it’s all about.
You will notice the existence of a mix of different people, hipsters, middle-aged couples and many young people. The wine list is very broad so you will find many brands of good Greek wine. Basically the wine is the core of Maitr & Margarita’s concept.
As for the food, I simply loved it. The menu was characterized by many kinds of cheese (try arseniko), a very interesting mix of Mediterranean starters and a few main courses with an emphasis on local flavors. The Pork Neck Chops were absolutely incredible! Also try the “Skioufichta with apaki” if you manage to pronounce it! It’s a type of pasta from Crete accompanied with apaki (lean pork). Also, the Maitr & Margarita’s version of Greek salad is exceptional!
Due to the ever-increasing popularity of it and its small capacity, it is advisable to book a table in advance!
