The restaurant “Hytra”, whose name derives from the ancient Greek terracotta vase , first opened in 2004 in “Psiri”, one of the oldest districts of Athens in the historical center of the city.
In 2010 , the restaurant was awarded its first Michelin star and has retained it since.
In 2012 was awarded a second Michelin star, the first for “Blue Hytra” restaurant, hosted at Westin Resort in Athens. Alongside, Hytra receives annually enthusiastic reviews evaluations and other distinctions.
The same year, the restaurant relocated to the 6th floor of the Onassis Cultural Centre in Syngrou Avenue and was recently redesigned by award-winning architectural firm Divercity.
In warmer months of the year the restaurant moves to the 7th floor of the building, offering a unique outdoor setting with panoramic view of the Acropolis, Lycebettus hill and the city skyline.
High quality service and hospitality through a number of different services, the creation of a high aesthetic, warm and homely atmosphere, the continuous update and development without exaggeration in the approach to the concept of food and the emergence of Greek cuisine through Greek raw materials and recipes are the main components of the philosophy of the restaurant that has an intense relationship with the cultural activity of the Onassis Cultural Centre.
“Hytra” restaurant has developed its culinary identity based on the approach and the redefinition of the rich cultural heritage of Greek gastronomy by giving a contemporary expression in execution and the presentation of dishes.
As a harmonious and complementary coexistence of two different approaches around the meaning of Greek food, the two separate restaurant menus, the “Hytra” menu and the “Hytra Apla” menu that share a single space, interact in a gastronomic “choreography” in order to elevate the Greek cuisine through two constantly changing cards, having in common the domestic raw materials and recipes.

Memories from Greek flavors that emerge from recipes that have been given and executed in a contemporary way is the ultimate feeling that leaves Hytra menu, which is produced under the care of the new chef Tassos Mantis who is committed from September 2014 to bring new ideas to your table.
The highly technical recipes which are surrounded with high aesthetic choices in the appearance of the dishes and the table’s setup are offered through a tasting menu or from isolated options available on the menu.
The menu “Apla”, is being created under the supervision of the Tassos Mantis, changes twice a year and combines harmoniously and at affordable prices, domestic flavors with street food.
Based on the love for Greek herbs and spices and the forgotten traditional syrups, liqueurs and brandies, the barmen of the Hytra Bar create unique cocktails, using freshly squeezed fruit juices and handmade syrups and liqueurs, based on old traditional recipes made with the most modern techniques.
The impressive and constantly renewed cocktail list, created to combine the dishes of both menu, complements the extensive list of fine wines.

Excellent, yet it’s not enough. Because our recent visit to Athens and its surroundings leads us to make prominent at least two more places that deserve strong consideration. The first one, most of all: Hytra, opened in 2004 in the town’s historic centre but moved in 2012 to the sixth floor of the Onassis Cultural Centre on Syngrou Avenue....
