We visited Vezene last night with friends that had touted the restaurant since its opening, always saying it was the best food in Greece and without any hesitancy I can say that I absolutely agree!
In one word - "outstanding". Adding exceptional and magnificent and you clearly get the picture of what you should expect and what will be delivered to your table.
The restaurant is small so you must call for reservations, but its size helps create its charm and atmosphere. The location is central to everything that is Athens and sits directly across the street from the Hilton and Divani Caravel hotels on the square so it is a perfect location for visitors staying at the two properties.
While I am certain that everything on the menu is cooked to perfection, the steak tartare and shrimp appetizers cannot be missed. A few other notables are the Pasta with Sea Urchin, Filet and a dessert that is nearly 1 foot high stacked with homemade ice cream, cookies, caramel, chocolate and nuts - a truly over the top end to what I consider to be by far, the best restaurant I have ever eaten at in Greece and amongst the very top worldwide! Each dish has its unique flavor and all were handled masterfully!!!!
Whether you live in Athens or are just visiting, DO NOT MISS a night out at Vezene!!
