On the surface, Aleria seems fantastic. Great location, great decor, great service, great presentation. The location is a beautifully restored villa, impeccably decorated, with an attentive and professional staff. But where they ultimately fall down is on the food. The initial finger-foods were great, as...More

Great food & service! Incredibile good Greek wines. The only “strange “ thing is that even if you take the wine pairing, you are charged extra for the Prosecco and for a 2nd glass of wine.

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.
