If you are in Athens, make sure to visit Kouti in Anafiotika; this is a popular place to eat, offering creative takes on Greek classic dishes as well as international cuisine. If you are lucky, you may sit at one of the tables with a view to Acropolis. For a stunning view to Acropolis, though, as well as good food, you may also visit the restaurant located within the Acropolis Museum; the experience is simply breathtaking. For meze, try the Cretan – style café Meintani in the Exarhia district, a picturesque neighbourhood hangout with tables on a sloping pedestrian street.
Thessaloniki is known in Greece as the city of food and rightly so, as you may find a restaurant or small taverna in virtually every corner. One of the best known tavernas there is Ouzou Melathron, an “ouzerie”, offering ouzo and meze platters, as well as main courses for the hungrier folk. Molyvos is one of the finest restaurants in Thessaloniki, elevating Greek cuisine to its highest. Across the street, its sister – restaurant, Molyvos Ethnic, offers imaginative dishes in superb surroundings. If you prefer looking at the main landmark of Thessaloniki while eating, then Dore Zythos is the place for you; this restaurant offers exquisite Mediterranean food and a stunning view of the White Tower. You may also visit the district of Ladadika, offering a number of choices not only for eating but for night entertainment as well.
No matter which place in Greece you visit, though, you will definitely satisfy your palate with a vast range of flavours. From fresh fish and seafood in seaside tavernas to tasty pork and lamb, accompanied by the freshest of vegetables, your culinary trip will be one to remember!
