Menu

A very British Christmas, well, as British as can be here in Athens!! Using the best of the seasonal produce available, myself and my friend, the apartment owner Panayota, will be hosting and cooking in the open plan space, to not only entertain you, but you will see me cooking and creating the plates, which adds an extra dimension to the evening. 

The apartments huge balcony offers a ‘to die for’ view of the Acropolis, which will come into its own when we create further events on those long summer Athenian evenings that we all love so much. Although the event is non-smoking, the balcony is available as a place to smoke, should you wish.

The menu offers a nod to the traditional British Christmas, including modern twists and unique techniques that I have perfected over many years. We are using the best organic and free range produce, sourced with care and research, ensuring that the freshest and tastiest results are on your plate along with great value for money.

This coupled with our joint responsible attitude towards food, we are offering you a taste of Greece, but cooked by me, a British Chef, of Irish, Scottish and French heritage, in a true celebratory style.

This is modern British cuisine, seasonal and ethically sourced produce, cooked using European cooking techniques. Unfortunately there’s no ‘cuisine style’ keyword available below, hence the explanation.
