“Vassilenas” is a true Athenian institution with a history that spans
almost a hundred years. Born as a humble taverna in an impoverished
neighborhood close to the Piraeus port in 1920, it later
became the iconic restaurant of the 50s and 60s where Winston
Churchill and Sofia Laren, Tayron Power and Romy Schneider have
dined. Relocated to the center of Athens in 2006, it has become
a modern, cosmopolitan restaurant offering creative Greek cuisine and winning culinary awards year after year. A long journey filled with memories of family recipes that continue to inspire our cuisine today.
