Tudor Hall Main Dining Room

Tudor Hall Main Dining Room

“Look at that view !” is the first thing most people exclaim when looking out from the balcony of the Tudor Hall Restaurant. Standing 7 floors above the center of Athens, the realization that they are staring at the stunning Acropolis is generally cause for a celebratory glass of bubbly.  The King George Hotel Athens is only a half mile stroll to the Parthenon and 1 mile to the Acropolis.  You can’t get any more central than that, and yet from up here there is privacy and serenity away from the bustle below.  And yes, that incomparable view.

Sometimes hotel restaurants with incredible views get a bad rap because they reply on the view instead of offering fantastic food. But  Tudor Hall  has nothing to worry about. They beautifully present international cuisine and   traditional Greek dishes with a modern spin.

Talented Chef de cuisine Alexandros Koskinas and pastry chef Evgenio Vardakastani take you on a modern Greek journey without leaving their roots or culture behind. Seasonal is in, fresh is the rule, and the seafood is local whenever possible; as is the beef, chicken and pork.

I think a true hallmark of a great restaurant is when the locals go there to dine. On the evening of our dinner, the restaurant was very busy, and most of the customers where local people having a fine dinner, perhaps celebrating an anniversary, or just a romantic dinner with an amazing view.

Tudor Hall is truly an enjoyable place for fine dining in a beautiful relaxed setting, it’s formal and yet not stuffy. The Greek way of hospitality really shines here. It’s a must see, do and experience when in Athens. One other thing, when you go, be sure to try some of the Greek wine, it’s the perfect pairing with this rustic/modern Greek feast. The sommelier at Tudor Hall is a master at matching the wine to your courses.
