Exquisite Mediterranean cuisine at the very first Gastronomy Boutique Hotel of Athens!
Set within The Gem Society Hotel, Muse Bistro is as serious as it is fun. Outstanding market-fresh cuisine and an often playful take on Greek classics where our gifted Chef Themis and his team have worked their talents and culinary cultures. The result is a menu where dishes and ingredients change with the season.
Almost everything is produced in-house, from sauces and jams, to breads and pastries. Breakfast is also a fiesta of flavour, fragrance, and prepared to any requirement. Our bistronomy menu caters to a discerning palette, where priority is always about the pleasures and joys of eating well.
So whether you are popping in for breakfast, snack or brunch, out for an afternoon coffee or a sunset aperitivo just before a mouthwatering dinner from our à la carte menu, Muse Bistro is a tasty gem in the heart of bustling downtown Athens.
On a side note, we can also provide special dietary options upon request; should you be checking out early, we will arrange for your breakfast in take-out boxes.
Dip a perfectly-seasoned fry into the ketchup at Muse Bistro and you know you’re onto a winner. It’s spiked with cardamom and cloves – and along with almost everything at this newly-minted hotel eaterie, set inside a revamped 1930s bank building, it’s made in-house. There’s fragrant peinirli with 24-hour matured dough; snack attack goodies like popcorn with bacon or graviera; home-roasted nuts with paprika and thyme that pair perfectly with their sassy cocktails (carrot Margarita, anyone?).
Chef Themis Mantziris’ menu plays on that same effortless sophistication and delivers Mediterranean staples with French finesse. The fatoush salad zings with herby, lemony loveliness. Try the ouzo-drenched orzo with shrimps or the moussaka ravioli, a lighter, refined expression of the Greek standard. Right down to the desserts, the seductively named kuneifi, promises crunch and gooey goodness with every biteful.
If you’re a foodie like me, who’s obsessed with food made with love, then brace yourself. The Muse Bistro’s healthy and filling options will have you totally addicted and asking for seconds. But wait, there’s no guilt to be harboured and calorie counting isn’t permitted as the dishes are all freshly made with wholesome, local ingredients. From the beautiful lemon flavoured couscous, fennel and sea bass, two textured cockerel, to the beautifully made crepes and omelettes at breakfast, you’ll be spoilt for choice. The homemade nougat and pistachio ice cream is a must-try, though.
So why not tuck in?
