Fodor's Review

A few years ago, journalist-turned-politician Stavros Theodorakis decided to bring the culinary traditions of his Cretan hometown of Chania to Athens. Located behind the Hilton hotel, his restaurant immediately became a success with the crème-de-la-crème of the city. Alatsi (which means natural sea salt on his native island) serves Cretan delicacies such as kaltsounia (small pies) with wild greens, lemon-braised goat shoulder with stamnagathi wild greens, and Cretan gamopilafo (traditional wedding pilaf boiled in goat meat). For dessert, there is Iordani's bougatsa, a sweet and savory cheese pie that comes straight from Chania. The complimentary glass of raki at the end of your meal is ideal for digestion.
