Kuzina is an elegant Greek restaurant in the heart of Athens, offering amazing culinary creations under the shade of the temple of Hephaestus on the picturesque Adrianou Street.
Built in an old mansion, guests are blown away by the breathtaking views of the Acropolis from its Tarazza!
Based on modern Greek cuisine, Aris Tsanaklidis, the renowned chef, creates a unique menu that makes Kuzina stand out, as he combines traditional cuisine and culinary inventiveness.
The cozy ambience, amazing view and delightful menu have contributed to Kuzina’s success and awards of various distinctions, such as being included in the Michelin guide, and BBC’s list of the world’s top 10 restaurants with a view.
Chef Aris leads his talented team who create some of the most popular local specialties based on the purest and freshest ingredients sourced from all over Greece.
Some of our favourites on the menu right now:
Entree: Traditional fava beans with caper leaves, fresh tomato and onion, Dumplings filled with feta cheese mouse, pistachio, sun dried tomatoes, olives and pomegranate sauce and the Crab cakes with fresh blue Greek crab in a crispy panko mixture, herbs and aioli sauce.
Main: Risotto with pumpkin, yellow and wild blue corn, raisins, safran and aged traditional “graviera” cheese and the Lamb fillet with vegetable ratatouille and mavrodaphne-rosemary sauce.
Dessert: Ekmek with toasted “tsoureki”, mastic ice cream, whipped cream, sour cherry syrup and pistachios and who can resist the Millefeuille with fiorentines, catalane cream and caramelized nectarines!
Kuzina’s famous Tarazza is open from now until October, inviting guests to experience a unique gastronomic experience under the moonlit sky of Athens, while enjoying the breathtaking view across to the Acropolis and Hephaestus temple.
If you are there over the next few months, make sure you book ahead for a rooftop-terrace table, for the best views all around and a fine second choice is an outside table on the pedestrian street.
