Greece’s chefs and restauranteurs are constantly raising the stakes and the world’s experts are noticing

Over the last few years, a growing number of innovative, high-quality restaurants with sophisticated and creative menus in the Greek capital are receiving global distinctions, including Michelin stars. Diners seeking highly palatable foodie adventures in the city have a far wider and more deliciously exciting choice today, as chefs and restaurateurs are exploring and experimenting in the field in ways that were never attempted before.

The Michelin Guide of 2022 for Athens includes three restaurants that have been added to the list for the first time, five restaurants that are keeping their stars, and one that failed to get a second star again. The Michelin Guide also features restaurants that stand out for their commitment to sustainability practices, earning a green star, although the list of restaurants that deserve our attention – but don’t have a star – has also grown considerably.

Here, we present the most recently awarded and noteworthy restaurants you should discover in Athens.
