In the heart of winter, human hearts draw closer together and celebrate this closeness. On February 14, even if logic tells you otherwise, your heart tells you to seek out something different and special - an evening out with your loved ones. With this in mind, visit…
The Café Vienna, at the lobby of the hotel, for something sweet and unbeatable. Try the champagne mousse with strawberries, cookies with namelaka chocolate or cupcakes with caramel tofu and Guanaja mousse. And probably the only thing that will be able to take your mind off this cavalcade of incredible desserts is the sweet sound of live piano, violin and cello playing just for you in this fabulous space. To enjoy a full-fledged meal, you should proceed to the Bistrot Vienna. Here the live music and award-winning décor provide the perfect setting for a sumptuous meal starting with a velvety soup, followed by wonderful salads (for two, of course), perfectly grilled steaks and then chocolate with pomegranate and berry marmalade – to add a bit of passion as an epilogue to your feast.
10th floor of the hotel; the gleaming Parthenon and the sparkling city below greet you as you enter the simple and harmonious elegance of the Première and are welcomed by the meticulously trained and friendly staff – who will help you enjoy the finest dining experience in Athens. The menu whets your appetite with a tempting taste, an “amuse bouche”, and then moves on to the soup course before offering you a choice between the amazing roast mussels and clams, the mouth-watering salmon filet, or the veal steak with potato purée. To top it all off, a dessert that you will forever remember: crème made from lychee nuts and raspberries with rose-petal macaroons – while in the background a live vocal duet brings music to this most romantic evening.
Première has won many accolades and awards for its sophisticated dishes, its world-class service, its unique décor and its breathtaking view.
