Created to satisfy all palates, Muse Bistro’s kitchen can best be described as hip and fun, but with a generous dash of serious!
Taking cues from traditional Greek cuisine, and making full use of the abundance of fresh local produce, our demanding and resourceful Chef Themis and his team pair mediterranean flavours and classic dishes with modern flair. We pride ourselves on our made-in-house goodies, and all-around devotion to tasty and hearty nutrition. Our flavourful menu caters to a motley of appetites, setting the tone by never compromising on fresh, seasonal and local produce.
Every morning, the heavenly smell of freshly baked breads and pastries wafts through the air, inviting you to enjoy a mouthwatering breakfast. Brunch at the Muse Bistro is also quite the affair – and served all day. Lunch and dinner can be hearty or light, simple or sophisticated, ordered to go or served to savour over. Whatever your desire, our priority is always about the pleasures and joys of eating well.
So whether you are popping in for a quick brunch, out for an afternoon coffee or a sunset aperitivo just before a delectable dinner from our à la carte menu, Muse Bistro is a merry meeting place in the heart of bustling downtown Athens.
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?
