Nestled in the heart of Parkhurst, the Kolonaki Greek Kouzina is a bustling Athens where you may lose yourself in the sun-drenched splendor of the Aegean. Take your taste senses to tavernas lining cobblestone walkways where the aroma of frying souvlaki and grilled lamb fills the air.

Enter the heart of Greek hospitality, where tables heaped with fresh seafood, platters of crisp Meze, and glasses clinking with Ouzo create a lively laughing atmosphere. Enter a peaceful space with whitewashed walls covered in bougainvillea, soft Greek tunes, and conversation and plate clinking.

You are transported to a bustling Athenian taverna, where laughter permeates the air and is mingled with the aroma of oregano and olive oil. Kolonaki is the kitchen of Meze. The restaurant, which takes its cues from Greek and Mediterranean food, prides itself on offering a unique and inventive take on classic Mediterranean cuisine’s warm, sophisticated manners.

They pledge to their customers that they will build a cozy, individual restaurant with excellent food and outstanding service. They cordially invite you to explore Kolonaki and test their novel idea.
