The Culture Trip came to Athens to eat their way to the top ten best restaurants we’ve got. They found a town with a range of “fresh and exciting international cooking”, some solid fine-dining restaurants with Athens style and a wealth of gastropubs and inexpensive but good eateries.
Of The National they said…
Following the success of 5&10, Hugh Acheson opened his second restaurant, The National, together with talented chef Peter Dale. Sporting a more casual atmosphere than 5&10, The National puts top quality ingredients sourced from the best local producers at the service of a quirky menu inspired by Southern European and Mediterranean gastronomies. Here, guests have a chance to taste appetizing delicacies such as the Middle-Eastern hummus or stuffed dates, the Italian pizzette or the Spanish patatas bravas, before proceeding to the main course. Like the food, the drink selection is influenced by the Old Continent, with the wine card listing a rich selection of French, Italian, Spanish, Greek and German bottles.
