Location and contact

Altamira is one of the most famous restaurants with multiethnic cuisine in Athens. Our restaurant opened in 1995 in Marousi (very close to the metro station). This two-floor mansion brought a fresh atmosphere of gastronomic culture to Athens, offering a wide range of ethnic cuisines such as Mexican, Indian, Arabian and Asian. Apart from the high-quality taste, the dreamy decoration and the ethnic music are a treat to the eyes and ears of the visitors which create a unique experience. If you are looking for a cosmopolitan restaurant with good food, we will be glad to see you in Altamira!

Went here for a Sunday afternoon dinner and I was not impressed. How about this for a theme: Mexican, Arabian AND Indian food. Yes, you guessed it, it does not work, need more focus. I can only comment with any expertise on the Mexican food,...More
