Greece Trip Itineraries

Top 10 Five-star Restaurants in Greece

Destination(s): Athens

We all love Mediterranean food, so when you have the freshest ingredients and you mix them together in generous and inventive ways you get the best food in Greece. These top class restaurants are all about locally sourced, delicious produce, so it is no wonder that Greece actually has a lot of eateries that have been awarded one or more Michelin stars. The price to be paid for a dinner at Varoulko or Luna Rossa is not at all negligible, but neither is the satisfaction you will get. The best of the best (as it has been voted for 10 years in a row) is Spondi, an internationally acclaimed restaurant that will surely make for a memorable night out. However, if you are looking for something equally delicious but less pretentious, we recommend Taverna Vakchos or Taverna Skala, two places that are popular among locals and tourists as well. read more about Top 10 Five-star Restaurants in Greece

Risotto with leek and lobster, spaghetti with steamed clams in white wine from the Aegean island of Limnos, and grilled Plurotis mushrooms served with smoked Graviera cheese, just as teasers.

Luna Rossa

Luna Rossa

You would never suspect that a Michelin Star restaurant was tucked in the blue collar Athens suburb of Kallithea, and that night after night, Italian Chef Danilo Petrini was tantalizing the senses of patrons with his slow food philosophy in his home which doubles as his restaurant. There are three dining rooms, resplendent in 19th century furnishings that accompany four, ten, and sixteen persons, as well as a garden that can accompany twenty more. In short, you don't come here to feel "part of the crowd." It is an intimate place where you can develop a relationship with your dear friends or colleagues or bottle of wine, carefully chosen to accommodate porcini mushrooms or truffles, Tagliolini Al Caviale Beluga...

Open from the 15th of September to the 30th of July.
