Award Winning Restaurants in Greece

Milos GreekThis is a list of restaurants awarded by the culture and entertainment magazine Athinorama. These awards have been organized for over 20 years by the magazine, and are probably the closest you will get to some sort of “best restaurant” list in Greece. While there are many great restaurants in Greece not on this list and many restaurant critics will disagree with the order and scoring of these restaurants, the list does provide a good starting point and some ideas on restaurants to visit. It is worth looking at this list and trying out some of these restaurants. The second list is exclusively for Greek restaurants and is a category of its own.
Currently there are five Michelin awarded restaurants in Greece, which are on the list below- I’ve noted them in the descriptions.

    Thank you for this wonderful blog. To this terrific list, I would humbly add two favorites that have won “awards” from our family and friends: Geona’s in Paleo Psychiko and Kuzina in Plaka. Even if you can’t get a table at Spondi or Milos, you wont be disappointed!

    Funky Gourmet has just been awarded a second Michelin star in March 2014 and along with Spondi are the only two restaurants in Greece that have this distinction.
