With its seaside location, Glyfada is a dynamic neighborhood where you can escape the downtown heat for some fresh salty air. It is also a great place to find a wide variety of eateries to satisfy your hunger. Here is our selection of the top 10 restaurants available in Glyfada.

1. Spiti – Neat Eat + Drinks

Spiti – Neat Eat + Drinks

You will feel right at home at Spiti (which literally means ‘home’). With a variety of Mediterranean and Greek dishes on its menu, Spiti serves excellent amongst its stunning décor. Don’t expect moussaka or souvlaki, and opt for the salmon risotto or shrimp tagliatelle instead. While you’re at it, have a look at the wine menu but don’t skimp on dessert (the panna cotta is definitely worth a try).

2. All Senses Gastronomy

Restaurant, Greek, Contemporary

Prepare for an experience you won’t forget anytime soon. All Senses Gastronomy offers a unique experience that caters to all your senses. The Odyssey menus take you into an innovative and creative journey of flavors, scents and textures, and as the team behind the concept, Anastasis Sotovikis and Constantina Batziou, are also the founders of Spiti restaurant (above), consider this venture an elevated version of their proven dining expertise. Challenge complete!

3. Aperitivo

Bar, Cafe, Italian

To satisfy your pizza cravings be sure to head to Aperitivo. This all-day pizza bar brings Italian food to Greece. With fresh and tasty panini and tramezzini in the morning, the bar turns into the best place for the classic (namesake) aperitivo in the afternoon, then transforms into a trattoria in the evening with a menu including pasta, pizza or tagliata. That and an excellent wine list make this a favorite address for a relaxed and casual dining experience.

5. Pere Ubu

Bar, Restaurant, Pub Grub, European, Mediterranean

A favorite address in Glyfada, Pere Bar & Ubu Pure Food is a yin and yang restaurant complex; this all-day bar/restaurant is split into two concepts. Pere serves drinks, burgers and cooked dishes and transforms into a bar in the evening, while Ubu is a modern organic restaurant, with breakfast & brunch options, soups, sandwiches, flatbreads, as well as oven-cooked dishes. Whichever you choose, you are in for a treat.

6. Food Mafia

Food Mafia

At Food Mafia, innovative dishes are the focus with well-curated ingredients and rare flavour combinations. Ok, the burgers are quite popular but the menu features an array of diverse and exotic choices.

9. Sardelaki

Restaurant, Seafood

Sea bass, calamaris, octopus, sardines, crab salad, salmon tartare and lobster. Just a small taste of what glorious seafood awaits your tastebuds at Sardelaki (Little Sardines).

Just make sure to wash your meal down with the good portion of ouzo.

10. O Proedros
