My wife and I recently spent 5 nights in Athens. We very much enjoy dining out and experiencing different restaurants and different flavors when we travel. The Aleria Restaurant was our favorite throughout our stay in Athens. The overall combination of great food, ambiance, and service made for a very memorable experience. Our server Jimmy was fantastic and was spot... More

This restaurant is located in the centre of Athens at an ideally refurbished old house. The atmosphere is fantastic. The food quality was as well fantastic but it is is rather complicated to decide what you will eat. The menu should have been more simple.

Gourmet food, unique Greek fusion cuisine, slightly expensive, but totally worth the money!!!Highly recommended, around spring-summer, since it has a very beautiful courtyard. Also, at the same period, Wine Wednesdays hold unique Greek wines combined harmoniously with a special menu.

We spent 4 nights in Athens and did our homework ahead of time to make sure we had 4 very good restaurants lined up. Aleria gets my pick as the best......the other 3 were very good but Aleria had the best overall food, service, and ambiance. Our server "Jimmy " was great. He explained everything we received in such detail... More

This restaurant is as good as everyone says. I had duck, the best I've ever had. My daughter loved her lamb. The desserts were truly art! The staff was the nicest we've found in Greece! Definitely recommend.

This place was phenomenal. Food sensational and the staff another level. An M star cannot be far off. We had the 7 course tasting menu with wine pairing and all I can say is wow. Each course and paired wine was delivered with a full description and the staff were more than happy to engage in conversation about their story... More

Very nice restaurant for fine dining in Athens. We were a bit unsure we were in the right place as the short walk from the metro went through a very run down area but Aleria stood out: a beautiful building inside and out. We booked online the day before with open table but they had no record of it. Fortunately... More

Aleria combines the most delicious food (traditional food served in a surprising way, take the pre-arranged menu!) with very friendly, great service (which already starts when you step out of your taxi) and a perfect ambiance! I would recommend this place to anyone who's looking for a Greek culinary experience:)

Description
The restaurant is a perfectly restored villa from the early years of the previous century. The decor strikes the perfect balance between luxury and ambience, creating an atmosphere which is quite formal but still unpretentious, cozy and elegant. The restaurant's creative cuisine has been awarded many times and promises to impress you with a brilliant parade of re-synthesized Greek cuisine The chef Gikas Xenakis is one of the best proponents of the New Greek Cuisine movement which now attracts the most talented chefs in Greece. His philosophy is one that combines a calm but confident control of the modern cooking techniques with his memories of traditional home food cooked with the best and freshest ingredients that the sea and land of Greece offers. At Aleria you will enjoy Greek fine dining in wonderful surroundings in what is considered as one of the best value for money restaurants.
