Renovated Pausa, in Maroussi, is a favorite hangout with the crowd of the northern suburbs of Athens, not only for its elegant environment, but also for the excellent Italian cuisine. Open from 10 in the morning until late at night, Pausa is an all-day bar/restaurant offering a relaxing pause during the day or entertainment in the evening. Ideal for coffee, meals and special cocktails, the locale changes atmosphere at night with soft music and lighting.
Awarded chef Freddy Demetia has prepared a carefully selected menu, which includes mini burgers with freshly made french fries and bearnaise sauce, a variety of soups and salads, pizza with genuine Parma prosciutto, risotto with black truffles and porcini, chicken fillet with gorgonzola and walnuts, tagliatelle with cuttlefish, fresh fish delivered daily from Karistos and much more. Tiramisu is a must for dessert and the chocolate ganache is definitely worth trying. The wine cellar includes more than 200 Greek and international labels.
In addition to being great for romantic dates or group outings, Pausa is also ideal for business lunch or dinner. Live music parties are often held with international and Greek hits. And Saturday nights are dedicated to guest singers and musicians who create their own special atmosphere.
