Alatsi Review

A few years ago, journalist 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, especially top journalists and politicians. Alatsi (which means natural sea salt on his native island) serves Cretan delicacies such as kaltsounia (small pies) with wild greens, beef slowly stewed in wine, and Cretan pasta. 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.
