Description: Pere Bar & Ubu Pure Food could be described as a restaurant complex with a concept of all day and night excellence. In the southern suburbs of Athens it has the highest caliber: culinary experience, innovative cocktails, modern interior design and continuously alternating quality music that stimulates its visitors until the early hours. The diversity of its menu and the quality of its dishes have been considered to be innovative, equally valued & comparable to internationally distinguished restaurants in New York and London. In one of the most central points of the Glyfada region, on Cyprus Street, the two twinned restaurants, compete on a daily basis to offer its clientele the best of what they have to offer, winning over their clients in its elegant surrounding with its friendly atmosphere and music that keeps a good energy. Justifiably it is the favorite spot for the most demanding clientele for the past 10 years and is considered to be the “Must” all day restaurant-bar in Glyfada. Its core beauty is the combination of two completely different concepts combined into one, in which lies a successful blend of two different ambiences, philosophies and product offerings in an allday framework, appealing to all ages and demographics. Its long experience in the restaurant industry has created a place that is: trendsetting and intimate, elegant and hippy, forever trendy and modern, multi culti and local, appropriate for singles and families, flexible in any given moment, ready to transform according to the market’s and customer’s needs. The mottos of the dual concept: “We fit so well together” and “Our moments”, were not randomly selected, they are a pure reflection of what the concept represents, an integral part of the daily lives of its customers.

“More a bar than restaurant”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

It's sad that an evening meal can be destroyed by the heavy smell of cigarettes before
you get a chance to pay your check .

Had an early dinner here and the service was hopeless. After we were seated , we were ignored
for more than 10 minute before I could get a waiters attention . It's almost like we were
bothering him to ask for menus and pre dinner drinks .

Then the food came and it was much better than the service. I had to search and ask for the waiter and the check at least 3 times . By the time the check
came the tables around us were smoking like fiends, and
any food taste was quickly replaced by the nicotine stench.

Greece is the only country in the European Union that does
not enforce the no smoking law, so unless you want
your meal ruined , try to eat some where else , when in
Athens .

“So and so”
Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

I think that pere ubu is more a bar than a restaurant. The music is too loud so if you are more than 2 people is difficult enough to hear each other. Food is good. Prices: moderate

“Nice atmosphere decor, cocktails, reasonably-priced, but food needs improvement”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Had drinks and dinner on a Thursday night. the bar was packed with 25-35 yr olds, at dinner tables were 35+ patrons. Drinks were excellent innovative, and generous from the pornstar martini to the jasmine mojito, to a fair selection of wines. Appetizers and salads were o.k., but could be improved. Main entree choices lacked any seafood or salmon entrees unfortunately. Prices though were reasonable and pasta was al dente. With a better chef and improved menu options, this place would rock.
