Our hotel, the Cotommatae, highly recommended this restaurant and arranged our reservations. We celebrated our wedding anniversary with lovely cocktails. Dinner included a delightful salad of burrata, cherry tomatoes, mixed leaves, baked beetroots, figs and pistachio. My husband ordered the traditional pasta "Gkogklies with mushrooms,...fresh oregano pesto, mizithra & hazelnuts. I chose the Pork loin served with risotto milanese, king oyster mushrooms and red wine jus. Both entrees were amazing! For dessert, we shared the yummy Almond & fig tart. The wine selection was very nice. The wait staff was very attentive and prompt. The table was ours for the night and we witnessed the stunning sunset! The perfect spot to celebrate our anniversary!More

I have been travelling around Greece for the last 3 weeks, and enjoyed many good meals. However this is the first time I have written a restaurant review. The simple reason is this: Techne surpasses them all. Stunningly situated on a hillside 10 minutes from...Hydra port, the setting - with view of trees, ocean and passing boats - is magical. The staff are extra efficient. The drinks list is terrific. And the food is to die for. Went 2 nights in a row. Highlights include swordfish carpaccio, burrata salad, and the lamb dish. Highly innovative chef who delights us with a new twist on classic Greek cuisine. Go there, you won't regret it.More

I visited the restaurant the day before our reservation and choose our table (it was a very special surprise occasion). When we turned up the following day, I noticed that another family was sat on our table and we’d been allocated another one, where we...were tucked in the corner next to another party of 6 -very disappointing! The service started off really well, but then as it got busy it went slightly downhill. We were served our main meal before we’d even finished our starters, so that was a bit of a shame. We then seemed to lose our waitress and couldn’t order drinks for sometime. Food was great, really couldn’t fault the quality of food-just needs some organisation around the admin and service.More

We had a great meal at this lovely restaurant. Excellent modern Greek food with an innovative touch. The staff and service were very good and the views are gorgeous. The swordfish carpaccio was the standout dish for us but everything was really very good.

We dined at Sunset and Omilos but rated Techne as no.1. Great service, diverse menu of starters and mains, nice venue and good value. The terraced seating in the main outdoor area was just great, views across the restaurant to the sea. Good wine list...with lots of greek options. Fav dish - Lamb starter (like a spring roll). Enjoy!More

Every year, the menu and staff change to the point where it might as well be a different restaurant, This year they were not too well organized as an establishment, had poor service but interesting food and a great location. My visit was not worth...my money and I am not going again until next yearMore

This is your spot if you're looking for a high-end meal with a view. The service was excellent, and the food was superb. Outstanding dishes were Crispy calamari, sweet chili dressing, lime & herbs, Grilled octopus, squid ink fava purée, miso aubergines, chorizo, Téchnē Greek...salad, and Aegean sea bass fillet, sautéed wild greens, celery root, citrus & prawn sauce. The only downside to this restaurant is they have an absurd amount of kittens and cats begging for food. They are cute, but it gets a bit distracting after a while. Still my favorite spot to eat on Hydra.More

🇫🇷Il est une douleur ècrir cet avis. Nous avons adoré le Restaurant Techné depuis 2018, mais Je pense que nous ne reviendrons plus. Table sur le trottoir (en depit la reservation en advance), attenant à la cuisine: pas de vue e beaucoup de bruit. Le...dessert ètait vraiment mauvais. Compte très cher par rapport au service. Adieu Techné. 🇬🇧 It’s a grief to write this review. We had loved Techné ever since 2018, but we won’t be back. Our table (booked in advance) was on the sidewalk, next to the kitchen door, with no view of the sea and way too much noise. The dessert was terrible. The bill too expensive, considering the (low) quality of the service. Godbye Techné. 🇮🇹 È un dolore scrivere questa recensione. Amiamo il Techné dal 2018, ma non penso ci torneremo più. Tavolo su un marciapiede buio, attinente alla cucina: nessuna vista e moltissimo rumore. Il dessert era davvero pessimo. Il conto estremamente caro, rapportato alla bassa qualità del servizio. Addio Techné.More

Highly recommend this restaurant. Excellent Greek inspired modern cuisine. All dishes were delicious, we decided to share dishes as we wanted to try many different. Tagliatelle with sea urchin & truffle is a must have dish as is the fried calamari with spicy sauce. Everything...we tried was great. Location is great. Best to come just before sunset and enjoy the view before dinner.More
