What strikes you first is the attention paid to ingredients. The menu, which changes with the seasons, is based on products of Greek origin. However, an exception is made for fresh produce such as meat, fish and vegetables.

A unique culinary detail, the vertical rotisserie designed by the chef himself, guarantees perfect cooking. Unlike traditional cooking, here the food cooks right next to the flames, ensuring even cooking throughout.
