Another serious effort to take the Greek cuisine on step further. Traditional materials of the Mediterranean are combined in new ways to challenge even the most demanding palate. From carpaccio of fish and tartare of shrimps, to a typical Mediterranean fish cooked Tataki, the place...More

Was invited to a farewell dinner with business associates and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere is modern and service impeccable. Fresh fish / seafood is recommended but save room for desert. Also a great selection of local and foreign wines are available.

You list 'lunch' in your dining options but the opening times are from 7 p.m. to 12.00 a.m. seven days. Is it possible to get lunch here? We last visited in 1965!!!
