Lovely Italian ice cream in Greece: Ninnolo Gelateria (2. April 2018)

The Ninnolo Gelateria is a lovely little place which serves good double espresso and has a decent ice cream selection. I went for three flavors (EUR 4.80): Mella Verde (which was somewhat more pistachio than apple), Rose (which did have a rose flavor) and Mastika (which had a Mastika flavor). While the colors of the […]

Very traditional Greek experience in a residential area: Restaurant O Mythos (2. April 2018)

Very traditional Greek experience in a residential area: Restaurant O Mythos (2. April 2018)

Sometimes, the easiest and simplest places make for great dishes. The O Mythos is located in Kifisia which is a residential area (where a friend of mine took me) and at first I was a bit skeptical given the place really looked simple to the max. However, I was hungry and they had a big […]

Decent but not in line with its ‘peers’: Restaurant Hytra (1. April 2018)

Decent but not in line with its ‘peers’: Restaurant Hytra (1. April 2018)

The Hytra is often mentioned in one breath together with the ‘Funky Gourmet‘ or the ‘Aleria‘ but frankly, it does not play in the same league. I went for the “Think Green Tasting Menu” (EUR 48.00) which started with a “Spanakorizo (spinach cream, dill, lemon)” which was basically a chip with little tasty dots. And […]

Still lovely but with very limited vegetarian options: Restaurant GB Roof Garden @ Hotel Grand Bretagne (1. April 2018)

Still lovely but with very limited vegetarian options: Restaurant GB Roof Garden @ Hotel Grand Bretagne (1. April 2018)

As the pain in my foot was unbearable, I decided to not move that day and enjoy lunch again in the GB Roof Garden restaurant with a nice view onto the Acropolis. This time, seated outside in the front row where you really get to fully enjoy the view. It was rather windy which made […]

One of a kind food experience – until you order the bill: Restaurant Funky Gourmet (31. March 2018)

One of a kind food experience – until you order the bill: Restaurant Funky Gourmet (31. March 2018)

A former colleague of mine told me about the Funky Gourmet in Athens about 1.5 years ago and it ended up on my ‘to do list’. Therefore, the moment I knew I was going to Athens, I had booked a table at the Funky Gourmet and it is worth booking in advance as it is […]

Truly local Greek food with tourist-level service: Restaurant O Thanasis Kebab Monastiraki (31. March 2018)

Truly local Greek food with tourist-level service: Restaurant O Thanasis Kebab Monastiraki (31. March 2018)

Sometimes, the pleasures when it comes to food are rooted in the simplicity of the dishes. I went for a “Greek Salad (tomato, cucumber, pepper, olives, onions, feta cheese)” (EUR 5.50) which was definitely simple but also quite delicious in terms of taste. The rather thick pita bread soaked in the oil of the Greek […]

A true gem in service and great all-weather view onto the Acropolis: Restaurant Tudor Hall @ Hotel King George (30. March 2018)

A true gem in service and great all-weather view onto the Acropolis: Restaurant Tudor Hall @ Hotel King George (30. March 2018)

The Restaurant Tudor Hall was recommended by my absolutely favourite foodie app ‘Where Chefs Eat‘ (yes, it costs 10 – 20 EUR but it is absolutely worth it). The view onto the Acropolis is not as good as from the Grand Bretagne but still rather nice. Once you’re seated, the service takes really good care […]

Great service and lovely view onto the Acropolis: Restaurant GB Roof Garden @ Hotel Grand Bretagne (30. March 2018)

Last time I was at the GB Roof Garden, I enjoyed a lovely evening with a marvelous view over the Acropolis. For lunch, the view is not as breath-taking but definitely still worth going. And not only because of the food but also because of the quality of the service and the quality of the […]
