The MICHELIN Guide Greece 2023 Is Out!

Today, The MICHELIN Guide released its 2023 selection to Athens, underscoring what Greece's magnificent capital city has to offer for local gourmets and international travelers. From new Stars to Green Stars, Bib Gourmands and newly selected restaurants, everyone will find their perfect culinary match.

The 2023 selection of the Athens MICHELIN Guide sees three restaurants receive One MICHELIN Star:

At this restaurant, led by chefs-owners Hervé Pronzato and Grigoris Kikis, typical Greek cuisine is influenced by France, Italy and even Asia, in a dynamic 15-course menu. The restaurant is an experience in itself, with a Japanese-style bar and open kitchen.

Tudor Hall
A newly-selected restaurant that astounded the Guide’s famously anonymous inspectors; directly earning it its first MICHELIN Star. This elegant eatery, located atop the King George Hotel and affording breathtaking vistas, offers high-quality, contemporary cooking orchestrated by chef Asterios Koustoudis.

Another newly-selected restaurant scoops its first star. Located in the mesmerizing The Margi Hotel, chef Panagiotis Giakalis offers modern fare, revealing delectable Mediterranean flavors in each dish, with sophistication and a farm-to-table philosophy.

All of the Starred restaurants from 2022 maintain their culinary distinction.


One restaurant receives a MICHELIN Green Star

Introduced in France in 2020, the MICHELIN Green Star aims to highlight restaurants at the forefront of sustainable practices, inspiring their guests but also their peers. This year, restaurant Patio joins Delta and Soil — which were awarded last year by the MICHELIN Guide inspectors. With its farm-to-table approach ensuring the use of the best local produce to enhance local recipes, and heartwarming Greek flavors, Patio knows how to make the difference and encourage diners towards sustainable gastronomy.

Two new Bib Gourmand restaurants were included by the famously anonymous inspectors

A firm favorite among foodies, the Bib Gourmand selection proposes establishments which offer tasty, high-quality and authentic food at a fair price:

Outside Athens’ crowded touristic area, in this informal eatery with an appealing open kitchen, chef Charis Nikolouzos highlights his Greek roots, with some French and Italian touches. Enjoy the laid-back atmosphere and the generous sharing plates which showcase fresh and local ingredients.

Fine Mess
Chef Elena Kaperda, already known for the ‘Lick the Spoon’ pastry project, provides a BBQ offer, focusing on smoked flavors. An original concept in town, in a cozy establishment, where diners can savor the ‘Low & Slow’ approach.

All the Bib Gourmand restaurants awarded in 2022 maintain their distinction.
