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.

“Nice place, service and great food”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

From the restaurants tried in Greece during the holidays, this is definitely the best ratio for quality and price. Service is nice and professional. Be careful service begins not before 8h30pm for diner. The place is amazing because fresh and quite. The food is good quality and creative.

“Fab dinner”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

Aleria is a great restaurant. We had a lovely table in the garden. Service was exceptional. Food very delicious. Lovely wine (long wine list). Would highly recommend. We particularly liked dakos with skotyri (tomato ice cream - starter - will try to replicate when we get home), pastistio, pork belly with celery root puree and beef rib with salsify.

Must go and try this restaurant if you are a foodie and like decadent food ! The back garden is great and they had a perfect wine selection.

My husband and I enjoyed this on our last night in Greece.

“Wonderfulllll food”
Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

I was invited to Aleria the 2nd night I was in Athens, which gave me a great start of an excellent food trip :)
The Restuarant is so lovely decorated, with the cutest backyard garden, it's clean and has friendly English speaking waiters and English menus which helps a lot.
Me and my friend only ordered mains with a bottle of Rose wine, but we were generously given a delicious salad (a famous salad coming from the island of Crete)... The dish I ordered was out of this world, "beef cheeks" it's called and it was beyond delicious!
I would definitely go there again and again and recommend it to all :)

Cheers,
Jumana

“Perfect for romance (wine Wedneasday is a must)”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Its a modern restaurant with a nice bar and an inside dining and outside (courtyard) dining area.

We opted to go on the Wine Wednesday night where they offer a 4 course meal with matched wines for 35EU each. Its great value, and I mean really get value.

Food was superb, wine was fine and the staff perfect. Outside dining was very romantic we really couldnt rate this restaurant highly enough.

We tried to return on our last night but they are closed Sundays
