Cinco opened quite recently in trendy Kolonaki and since then has become a great favorite with the discriminating public who demand good quality and originality. Industrial decor, lots of color and little Gaudi-style bulls on the reserved tables are some of the aesthetically pleasing details. Cinco means five in Spanish and signifies the five young partners who decided to unite their optimism and knowledge in creating this attractive locale. Open all day, for coffee in the morning, lunch, afternoon aperitifs, dinner and cocktails, Cinco attracts a different clientele every hour of the day, but is most renowned as a nightlife spot, not closing until 3 a.m.

The concept is based on a new style of tapas with Mediterranean flavors, curated by the executive chef of the famous luxury resort Costa Navarino, Doxis Bekris. Small dishes, big in flavor, texture and combinations, are made with products mainly from small producers and farmers. The ten cocktails on the list have been created by five friends, who are among the most famous bartenders in Athens, and is renewed three times a year. Special attention is given to ingredients and originality.
