The menu at Food and Wine is renewed four times a year, aiming at emphasizing the high-quality ingredients and seasonal produce. The wine cellar is enriched in the same way, including wines and distilled beverages from Greek and international wineries. These interesting choices are offered by the glass.
The space, designed in minimal style, is designed so as to offer various choices. Besides the main dining room with the beautiful hanging garden, you can also choose to dine at the bar right opposite the open kitchen, whilst the chef's table, which seats ten people in the kitchen space, offers a unique private gastronomic experience.
