Connoisseurs of food and wine, they are also severe critics and a restaurant’s fame is spread by word of mouth. A new discovery quickly becomes popular as long as the standards are good. Some locales, like Kiku and Abreuvoir, have a faithful and longstanding clientele, whilst other are preferred for taking important guests out, like Tudor Hall, Milos, Orizontes Lykavittou and Spondi. Specific cuisines with fresh fish like Rafale or Varoulko Seaside attract fans of the respective variety, whilst Funky Gourmet or Hytra are often chosen for special events. In all restaurants, special attention is paid to guests, who always leave with the best impressions. Quality cuisine, interesting suggestions, expert service and friendly atmosphere create an overall positive vibe, which makes for happy and returning customers. The personnel will gladly explain in detail anything you might want to know about the menu and will ensure that your culinary experience remains memorable. Often the owner will start a conversation with individual clients, creating a personal approach and confirming that everything is to your satisfaction. In Greece recommendation is all important, so good impressions are always paramount.
