The excellent flavors, the view and the service are the reason this remarkable restaurant has been awarded for four consecutive years with Toques d’ or & Greek cuisine awards. A visit here is definitely an aesthetic and unforgettable experience. New executive chef - Petros Kalevrosoglou - has prepared an excellent menu based on fresh ingredients and inspired by local and international cuisine.
The meat menu includes soup of the day; traditional Greek salad with barley rusks, capers and feta cheese; chicken fillet on the grill, served with new land potatoes; chocolate ice cream; and red wine. The fish menu includes soup of the day, wild grown greens, grilled salmon with steamed vegetables, lemon sorbet and white wine.
All dishes are accompanied with freshly baked bread rolls, and some of the delicious salads are rocket salad with cherry tomatoes, flavored cheese balls and vinaigrette or a variety of vegetables with poached shrimps and verbena essence. Definitely worth trying is the pasta risotto with wild mushrooms, oregano and truffle sauce; the traditional moussaka; and the cheesecake with white chocolate and sour cherry.
