Cafes and Restaurants finally open in Greece

Athens Reopens

Cafes and restaurants have finally reopened in Greece on Monday for sit-in service for the first time in nearly six months.

The Greek Government begins loosening coronavirus restrictions.

Cafes, restaurants, and bars closed since November and could only serve takeaway and delivery have finally reopened for outdoor seating service only.

Tables have been a certain distance apart to maintain social distancing while standing customers and music aren't allowed.

The reopening comes on a national holiday, the day after Orthodox Easter.

Many people took advantage of the unseasonably mild weather to head outdoors to their favourite locations.

A maximum of six customers is allowed per table, while staff must carry out compulsory coronavirus home self-tests.

A nightly curfew which has been in force from 9 p.m., is now 11 p.m. as of Monday, with food and beverage establishments allowed to remain open until 15 minutes before curfew.
