“There is no love sincerer than the love of food.” If you agree with George Bernard Shaw, then you’ve come to the right place. Athens is all about long nights sharing dishes paired with great Greek wines and cutting-edge cocktails. Get in the mood at Heteroclito, a cosy, romantic wine bar with a great-value selection of Greek wines by the glass. Feedελ Urban Gastronomy, a short walk away on a hidden, leafy square, is a champion of creative Greek cuisine (the chef is a judge on Greek Masterchef). Order as many dishes as you can: the menu is designed for sharing. For dessert, wander a few blocks to Le Greche, one of the finest spots for artisan ice cream in Athens. Try one of the specialty Greek flavours, such as baklava, layered with pistachios, honey and crunchy flakes of filo pastry.
