About
Thes ''Greek Creative Cuisine'' opened it's doors on July of 2019. This was the start for our gastronomic trip. Our mission was and still is to open our "big house", a warm restaurant that serves Greek Creative Cuisine with the best hospitality. Our friendly team, their big smiles and passion is what makes Thes ''Greek Creative Cuisine'' unique. Our signature dishes are some traditional Greek recipes "remade" with a fresh touch. And our small secret? No one leaves the restaurant without a small treat! Some traditional ice cream or a glass of "mastic" is the perfect goodbye for us (always combined with a big smile)! Book your table with us :)

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was a phenomenal dinner. The staff were very friendly and the food was amazing. Highly recommend for any family. The spinach pie appetizer was the best.

Restaurant's Favourite
Reviewed 22 May 2023

We went to Thes for two reasons. First. It’s the name of our dog, so it was preordained. Second, our hotel highly recommended. At first we were disappointed not to be seated outside, but the stars were aligned in our favor as we were seated...opposite the open kitchen, which was three steps up. From there we saw the chef in action….and as we were served our dishes, we realized she was making magic. We shared five dishes. Each one elicited raves from all four of us. The unique presentation of the moussaka was surpassed by its incredibly subtle taste (my favorite). The Sea Bream was perfectly prepared, as was the accompanying veggies. And the pork with fig honey was nothing less than sensational. The pastitsio seafood was a superb mixture of varied fish/crustaceans, and wonderfully tasty. I am guessing you get the point now! And to top it off, a little house made ice cream, and it was vanilla. I know, vanilla? Vanilla? But it was subtly different in a wonderful way, and none of us could identify why. Again, the magic of the chef. That’s it. Wonderful. Michael, Anne, Robin, David.More

What a great restaurant! Fantastic food and exceptional service. Traditional Greek food in a lively part of Athens. Suggest you share some entrees, pause, and then some main courses but make sure you include the moussaka.

Delicious inventive food. We had the Naxos potatoes, vegan gyros and seafood pastichio for starters. All very good, the pastichio was incredible. For dinner we split the Greek “Fide” spaggetini with clams and muscles. The sauce was a saffron dill olive oil dressing that was...amazing. Highly recommended.More
