Dionysos Zonar's: a dinner with Zeus

gastronomic

When you dine here, at the foot of the Acropolis, you have the Parthenon as your only decor.

Here are three good reasons to book this restaurant: for its architecture and 1960s decor that give it a postmodern style, causing UNESCO to recognise it in 1996 as a monument of modern architecture with global significance; for its incredible views of the Parthenon you literally dine with the gods.

And for its gastronomic reputation, as the Athenians come here for special occasions, such as Orthodox Easter and family celebrations. The young chef Haris Nikolouzos serves a single menu in eight courses.

Among other things, enjoy swordfish beetroot carpaccio and yoghurt cream, calamari accompanied by zucchini croquettes, spinach filo pastry pie, and the house specialty succulent lamb chops. For dessert, try the crepes Suzette with Metaxa brandy. An exceptional place, an exceptional dinner!
