Award Winning Restaurants: Athens and Elsewhere in Greece

Every year, the Athinorama magazine gives out "Golden Chef's Hat" awards for the best restaurants in Greece. Although someone with better googling skills may be able to find this list in English, I have not been able to do so. Getting ready for a trip in which we are meeting English-only friends, I translated the list of the restaurants that were awarded a 2006 Golden Chef's Hat into English.

Perhaps this list might help others in their research into interesting Greek restaurants. The list is in the order given on the athinorama website (http://www.athinorama.gr/afierwmata/...2006/resto.htm)

Varoulko was just mentioned in the Sunday Travel section of the NYTIMES. I will try and have dinner there when I am in Athens in July.

I am also going to Rhodes and Santorini.

Thank you for your gift of information on restaurants. It is very Greek of you.

Glad to help.

Just talked to a friend of mine in Athens, and found out that Jerome Serres (#7 on the list) has left the restaurant at the Eridanus hotel. Chef Serres is now at the Pil Poul restaurant in Thissio. Here's the new contact information:
«Pil Pul et Jerome Serres» Apostolou Pavlou 51 and Poulopoulou, Thissio, tel: 210-3423665

Thank you so much for this, Eleni! My husband travels back and forth to Athens frequently, and this will certainly come in handy for our summer trip!
