Dionysos Zonars

Dionysos Zonars Review

Location, location, location used to be the catchphrase that best summed up the raison d'être of this famously historic restaurant. It just happened to be the spot where movies were always filmed (those window views!), political treaties were signed, and tourists rested their feet after their heated Acropolis climbs. But a change of management and renovation work have lifted this legendary high-end restaurant up another notch. It now serves high-quality, traditional Greek and international dishes with a creative twist, such as arnaki ambelourgou (lamb wrapped in vine leaves, with melted cheese and vegetables) and kritharoto me garides (Greek pasta in tomato sauce with shrimp). The traditional syrupy baklava dessert is also exceptional. Extending all the good vibes, the adjoining café now serves breakfast and stays open until after midnight.
