Restaurants in Greece
Located at the colorful, art-inspired Semiramis hotel, this poolside restaurant serves Greek, European, and international cuisine in a vibrant dining room that echoes the style of the hotel.
Owners Evelyn and George Hatziyanuakis put a creative twist on Greek cuisine, using unorthodox combinations, such as cuttlefish served atop homemade noodles or baked mackerel, caper, and tomato all wrapped in a fava crêpe.
On an island that’s renowned for its glitzy nightlife scene, Astra stands out as one of the hottest clubs in the city. During the day, it’s a quiet lounge housed in a traditional, whitewashed cottage.
The name, taken from the Orphic Hymns, means “one who loves inspiration,” and it’s easy to feel inspired on the roof garden of Filistron, with what is arguably Athens’s best view of the illuminated Acropolis and Mount Lycabettus—without the corresponding high prices.
Just a 15-minute walk from the Acropolis, this small, often crowded eatery is home to what many consider the best (and cheapest) souvlaki in the city.
