CREATIVE GREEK CUISINE
At the Athenian house, tradition is always the inspiration behind each recipe, aiming to create modern and refined dishes based on Greek culinary traditions, with local ingredients from different parts of our country. Seasonal selected vegetables transcend the volcanic taste of earth or the breezy air of the sea, extra virgin olive oil and citrus flavors blend mediterranean aromas and herbs, while fresh seafood offers a dive in the aegean culture. Along with old time favorites such as our famous moussaka or our decadent baklava, our menu is complemented every year with new dishes where the country’s past meets the present, through new age technologies and fusion influences.
WINE & CHAMPAGNE
The Athenian House wine list focuses on awarded Greek wines, including the best labels of local and international varieties from insular, continental & northern Greece. Selected wine flights offer an amazing wine tasting experience for those who cherish an exclusive wine tour around the country. The restaurant currently owns one of the largest vintage collections of Santorini wines, with rare bottles of assyrtico, aidani or mavrotragano from the most renown wineries on the island. Santorini wines prevail, as local vines represent few of the very rare and unique in the world, which due to the special nature of the island’s soil, pumice stone and volcanic earth, remain unspoiled and intact from the phylloxera catastrophe of the 20th century.
COCKTAILS & SPIRITS
The Athenian House signature cocktails are inspired by exquisite Greek spirits, such as tsipouro or ouzo. World favorite cocktails are transformed with a local twist, a refreshing mojito with Dry Mastiha or a tropical martini with Vinsanto. The cocktail list is complemented by an exclusive selection of aged top quality spirits from around the world, along with local rare finds such as rum distilled in Panama & Barbados, then aged in Vinsanto barrels in Santorini or prickly pear distilled from the island’s local cactus plant. Our sunset cocktail culture blends the island's cosmopolitan nature with a nostalgic touch of old Athens.
