A performance from the Shadow Puppet Theatre for the 28th of October
On the October 28 national holiday, Cafezoe offers its younger visitors a performance by Kidarte and the Shadow Theatre of “Karagiozis and the “No” of ‘40”. The purpose of this performance is to acquaint children with the history of the famous “No” declared by the Greek people to the Italian invaders in 1940 – leading to enlistment and Karagiozis, Barbagiorgos, Stavrakas and the rest of their friends all dressed in khaki. A captivating performance that entertains and educates at the same time. On the same day, the buffet at Cafezoe, loaded with traditional dishes and treats, will bring back happy memories of family dinners long ago and will add new tastes and experiences to that rich tradition.
So, starting in October, our Sundays and holidays have a common meeting place: Cafezoe!
One of the most internationally popular cuisines – Mexican – is widely loved for its rich flavours, its colorful dishes, the balance and variety of its spices and for one of its fundamental ingredients: corn. Bistrot Vienna showcases Mexican cuisine for the entire month of October with dozens of dishes featuring: fresh burritos, tortillas and fajitas filled with traditional beans, meats and salads, which balance the hot tastes and cool the palate.
TEX-MEX. Mexican flavors à la Bistrot Vienna
Cilantro (coriander) and chili powder are two of the most basic spices in Mexican cuisine, and with these two evocative flavours the chefs at Bistrot Vienna “dress” their famous Mexican salads. And then we have the tacos, burritos and fajitas filled with meat (chicken or pork filet), beans and the famous guacamole – the avocado sauce which cools the mouth and stimulates our health. And for dessert, pudding with cinnamon and vanilla, two other ingredients beloved by the native inhabitants of Mexico, cherished and embellished over time.

For many of us, September marks the beginning of a new year. New beginnings for young and old, new plans for the winter ahead which challenges us to redouble our efforts and creativity. And what better way to rise to this challenge than to ascend to the famous Première restaurant on the rooftop of the Athenaeum InterContinental Hotel in Athens and there to enjoy the warmth and comfort of a September night – letting your thoughts soar among the glittering stars of the Attic sky.
Extraordinary food on our table – and a matchless view before us
Dishes by our renowned chef Michael Nourloglou, served with professional skill and discretion, are set to the best view in Athens (among the finest in the world) – the gleaming Parthenon perched atop the imposing rock of the Acropolis. And spread out below us – the city of Athens, her lights playfully glittering in the night, striving to compete with the magic of the starry heavens above.
