Wanting to celebrate my mother's birthday, we decided to dine in one of her favourite restaurants. At our arrival there, it took me no longer than a split moment to realise why this was her favourite. No more than 20 minutes away from downtown Athens, and surprisingly easy to reach if you know where to find it, you will have plenty of time to admire the incredible view and the atmospheric architecture from the ouside while someone comes and parks your car by the the time you stop moving.
The inside is even better, of course. After a trip through an entrance that could as well be a 16th century catacomb, which ends to a cellar-bar -whose tender will offer to serve you an aperitif-, you find yourself in a luxurious, atmospheric restaurant with sweet and fragnant air, and hospitable and poite maitres. Just as polite, warm and open-hearted are the waiters, who will be happy to serve you in any way possible. The decorations are so good they momentarily make you feel you're in another world, where everything is beautiful.
Of course, all those would not have a point if the food did not match. Eleas Gi offers a wide variety of all kinds of meals, prepared with the utmost precision and care -but most importantly, with the purest olive oil.

It's been a while since I was in Athens and went to Eleas Gi for dinner.
Calling it dinner is unfair. It is SO MUCH MORE.
The atmosphere, the unbelievable view, the best food I've eaten in Greece and elsewhere. What else can I say. It is even better than I remembered it.
I've heard from associates travelling to Athens that their hotel discouraged them from the 30 minute cab ride from downtown Athens to Kifisia. My dinner tonight confirms what I told them. They should never listen to their hotel or anyone else again. It is a short and pleasant drive which gives you a chance to see parts of the city, AND DEFINITELY WELL WORTH IT. AND DEFINITELY A SHORT DISTANCE FOR SUCH AN EXCEPTIONAL MEAL AND EXPERIENCE.
I am only confirming what so many others are saying.....

The restaurant is located in Kifisia, one of Athens nicest newer neighborhoods... but, counting your taxi driver will get lost, it takes a good 40 minutes from dwtn... I was there June 17th and sat outside on their beautiful patio... but consider the tables near the restaurant instead the ones by the guardrail: there is a lighted swimming pool below which breaks up the restaurant's nice atmosphere... after the last swimmer leaves and the lights go out, make sure to ask for a second candle... it gets really dark outside. Food is very good... we chose the 14 courses menu... more than enough, but half of them are mezzes, the pork steak was excellent!!! Service was good overall, despite a little communication difficulty with the maitre; A nice restaurant for sure... but not a must for first time visitors to Athens...

Not to be missed delight in the Kifisia section of Athens. A very warm welcome on top of a mountain in a spectacular setting with lovely and caring service and a memorable, delicious, perfectly prepared feast!

After getting a recommendation from a friend who said "it was one of the best meals of her life" we knew we needed to get there. And she was right! A true Greek cuisine adventure. We ordered the 24 tastes and enjoyed each course so very much. It was a lot of food and all excellent quality. Beautiful atmosphere and stunning view. Arrived at sunset which was perfect to see! Entire staff was welcoming and helpful. Reasonably priced for such a fantastic meal. Totally recommend getting there if you are in Athens.
