WHERE AND WHAT TO EAT WHEN IN ATHENS

Well, the good news we all had been waiting for has already been announced! Since the coronavirus crisis is getting more and more controlled most governments, including the Greek one, are announcing that economy is rebooted through a series of measures and laws. Thus, Greeks start moving around without any written or electronic “consents” from 4th May 2020 and most retail shops and other businesses open on the same date.

After a week or two all stores and factories will refunction including of course cafes, bars and restaurants. Despite the fact that social distancing will continue to be applied and no diner will be allowed to be that full and busy all eateries have started booking tables for their clients before now. That is to say, if you are planning having a great night out as a couple or as a family you had better hurry up for two reasons. First and foremost, most citizens would love to go out as bad as you and second the availability is about at half or one third than the one it used to be before the COVID-19 era.

Consequently, before dialing the number of your favorite restaurant you have to have become familiar with the top existing choices. In the following lines we will talk about the best restaurants in Athens, Greece since summer is closer than ever and Mediterranean countries are well-known for their beauty and the relaxation they offer during that season. Besides, Greece is said to have faced the virus in the best possible way and is considered to be one of the safest countries around right now.
