    Duende: Eat & Drink under the Acropolis

    by EviP Written Mar 2, 2014

    Bistro-bar established in 1994 with special tastes and soft jazz music, very close to the pedestrian street of Dionyssiou Aeropagitou, in the ancient heart of Athens.
    old fashioned decoration with distinctive jazz preference, marble tables and leather couches, bar with street view.
    Frequented by artists and people who love theatre, because it is within close distance from a theatre scene.
    Open from 8.00pm to 3.00am for drinks, but also for dinner, serving simple dishes but of excellent taste and quality.

    Six (6): All day around

    by EviP Updated Aug 12, 2013

    I love Athenian corners
    and this may go by unnoticed - yes, maybe because there are other things that people look for on Ermou street, in the centre of Athens...

    Still this place can be packed from noon: lunch breaks, coffee breaks, after work drinks and bites, late smooth music and Ermou street all day people watching!

    Nice music, quick bites and favourite to artists....

    ZORBAS Restaurant -Mikrolimano: Stunning Views, Excellent Seafood Cuisine!

    by greekcypriot Updated Mar 14, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Highly recommended, -Excellent service, Stunning views, Wonderful cuisine!

    Although we were spending the night near Passalimani, we booked dinner at Zorbas which is located at Mikrolimano instead. One reason was that I needed to include night shots from the beautiful coast of Mikrolimano for my Guides so we combined business and leisure.
    We used to come to this restaurant years back mostly during the summer months and because we knew it was a lovely restaurant we decided to dine here to check if it still has the good reputation of the past. We were not disappointed at all.

    There is a raised platform to the rear of the restaurant and the bar is on the right as you descend a couple of stairs to the main room. Mikrolimano is the Mecca of seafood lover’s paradise in Athens but let’s face it, Greek seafood is a match made in heaven. Of course the secret is to find the best place to eat with relish and trust the restaurant that will not rip you off.

    The view was stunning as the restaurant is literally right on the water. You see, there are big glass sliding doors and I am sure with daylight one can easily spot some fish in the waters.
    We had a nice table right next to the water, the music was playing soft and was so pleasing to the ears, we ordered a bottle of some fine white wine for the first ‘cheers’ and what we really wanted was to enjoy the Greek hospitality, and relish fresh seafood in this really cozy atmosphere. A few customers were enjoying their dinner but the whole time we were there people kept coming in. Niko Tzafalias the head supervisor and Gregoris were alert all the time serving and trying to meet the demands of the customers.

    The lights from Mikrolimano fell into the sea and the scenery was breathtaking. I cannot find words to describe how much we enjoyed our dinner outing and I am glad I chose to come here.

    With the arrival of our wine we were brought a variety of bread and rolls along with some olives, butter and olive pasta. The appetizers included 2 types of green salads, one included pesto and smoked salmon. Here the Tzatziki costs (4 euro) and surely don’t miss the Eggplant and Peppers Salad which in Greek is called –melintzanosalata. The eggplant comes right from traditional Greek oven and it is so tasty!! Taramasalata is another dish not to be missed!

    We had small portions (like meze) of fried squid or calamari, and marinated octopus in white wine for 13 euro. The Royal Calamari however is another popular dish in this restaurant. It was so delicious that I even asked how it is cooked. It is marinated with pesto on a bed of shredded fried potatoes and it costs 11 euro. Another exceptional dish is the Poached fillet of Sea Bass. This costs 28 euro and it is cooked in virgin olive oil, saffron, sun dried tomato puree. I believe the most demanding customer will love this dish.
    The Risotto with Cuttlefish cooked with ouzo and truffle oil for 18 euro surprised us happily and is another interesting dish I recommend. In reality we loved everything.
    The very last dish was a grilled farmed fish which we divided in two because we could not take any more but still wanted to try it. Although farmed fish yet so fresh and tasty!! These fish cost 55 euro a kilo so it depends on how many you want to have. I believe it is worth a try, and they are accompanied by boiled veggies.

    We finished our dinner with some dessert. We had the Hot Chocolate souffli which is served with ice cream and strawberry syrup for 10 euro, -one of the best I have ever had, and the Poached Pear in red wine which again is accompanied with ice cream and segment of orange in syrup. Both were irresistible and we decided to share!

    I believe I owe to let people know that an additional 8% is added on the total of the bill on Sundays, Bank Holidays, Christmas and Easter Holidays. I don’t know why somebody has to pay 8% when coming here on a holiday season, but surely customers should know. It was written in the catalogue. Something else that I read is the fact that in salads and cooked dishes the chef uses virgin Cretan olive oil. Virgin Olive oil adds so much to the quality and of course the taste of the food.

    I highly recommend Zorbas Restaurant and I am sure you will feel the Greek hospitality here, the excellent professional service, and enjoy the tranquillity and the stunning view.

    Dress Code: Coat and Tie required.

    Galaxy Bar: Eclectic Clientele, Steady Value!

    by greekcypriot Updated Mar 14, 2013

    The Galaxy Bar has a contemporary décor, plush wooden decking and the glass top bar makes it distinct.

    If you come here after dark you will see it transformed into one of the Athens’ most fashionable destination.

    It has glamour and style with different events taking place every now and then making it a popular haunt for local celebrities.
    It is a steady value among the Signature dining spots of Athens.

    The ceiling resembles the bright galaxy: stars, planets, flying-saucers, an “explosion” of colours in a fascinating set. The large mirror placed behind the bar broadens the view, while the dashing lights above add an Italian elegance.

    Guests at the bar can savour a speciality cocktail, try the amazing Sushi, the delicious finger food and pick something from the rich selection of international beers and spirits.
    Early evening brings a cool, eclectic clientele who know the place well as it is one of the trendiest Bars in Athens.

    If you are after the best Bar in the city, the highest quality and taste, this is the right spot for you. Enjoy your drink out here and every bite and let the music of the DJ travel you!

    Hilton Galaxy Bar: A favorite hangout of celebrities and citizens!

    by greekcypriot Updated Mar 14, 2013

    The favorite hangout of celebrities and citizens of the world with an Italian elegance.

    Try the cocktail Pluto with Scotch whisky, chamomile and honey, Jupiter with gin, cucumber and mint and Champagne Supernova with rose and litchi.
    I tried the champagne here.

    However there are other non-alcoholic cocktails to choose from:
    Aurora with ginger and mint, Sweet Eclipse with pistachio, apricot and honey or Intergalactic Traveller with espresso, caramel and milk.
    There are spring rolls, salmon blinis, mini burgers and samosas, to sushi, maki and sashimi to accompany your drinks.

    The view from up here is beyond expectations, and the music is fabulous! It twinkles from pop, easy listening and soul to disco and electronic.

    It has an impressive ceiling resembling the bright galaxy: stars, planets, flying saucers, an “explosion” of colors in a fascinating set.
