The famous Greek soldier called “Evzon” or “Tsolias”, dating back to the Greek revolution of 1821, previously represented the royal guards, while today he remains the official guard of the Greek parliament.

During Greek history the "tsolias" is an everlasting symbol of bravery and resistance. It is the soul of this soldier, combined with the beauty of his folklore original dressing, which inspires the Athenian House aesthetic concept.






The restaurant situated in Imerovigli Santorini, combines the experience of al fresco dining under the aegean stars, with the most breathtaking view over the famous Skaros Rock, recognized worldwide as the most romantic and dramatic sunset spot on the island caldera.

In 2023, the restaurant ventures into its eighth season, allied with one of the most important innovators of Greek Cuisine of the 21st century. The three times awarded Michelin Star French Chef Jerome Serres continues his journey in Santorini at The Athenian House for the second consecutive year.
Serres loves to reinvent Greek traditional recipes, fusing wild greens, indigenous herbs, nuts and fruits with local seafood and fresh fish. Faithful to his passion for mediterranean ingredients, such as olive oil and citrus fruits, the Chef has prepared two new spectacular tasting menus, full of plant based delicacies, while meat options are scarce and sustainable, such as pasture-raised or grass fed lambs, from local farms using low impact farming.
The restaurant also fully caters with set menus for gluten free, dairy or other intolerances, while each year it introduces a new entirely plant based menu, inspired by the richness of Greek gastronomy.
