Best bar-restaurants in Athens

July 03, 2014
If you’re looking to combine good food with a good time in a funky atmosphere, try one of the following bar-restaurants.


  • Abovo

In Kifissia, on a veranda looking onto Kefalari Square from high above, Chef Michalis Nourloglou has put together an extremely interesting menu featuring Mediterranean flavours and remarkable technique. 



Japanese-Nikkei cuisine, perhaps the finest of its kind in Athens, and a party atmosphere until the early hours. In Kifissia.



  • Cash

Summer’s here and Cash hosts in its garden Oozora, which is all about Nikkei. In winter, the cuisine turns to France. Whenever you visit, standards are very high. In Kifissia. 



  • Inbi

One of the most consistent and best Japanese restaurants in the city, Inbi combines fine cuisine with an outstanding bar. In Kolonaki, open only in winter. In summer it moves to Costa Navarino in Messinia. 



The beachfront club-restaurant that has become an institution. For years it has offered a distinctive island atmosphere, along with fine cuisine from Chef Nikos Skliras and an interesting sushi menu. At Varkiza.



  • Dalliance house

A strong bar, exquisite cocktails and imaginative cuisine in equal parts, in a wonderful neo-classical building in Kifissia.



  • Cinco

Authentic Spanish tapas, creative touches and a very good bar in Kolonaki.



Very good Italian cuisine with several creative touches. In summer there is a small courtyard, but winter is its busiest season. In Kolonaki.
