Indulge in classic Greek cuisine
Dining out should always be a memorable experience. Comfortable surroundings, real hospitality, good wine, cocktails and mouth-watering cuisine all combine at the Athens Yacht Club making it an enjoyable occasion. This is “The Athens Experience”.
Its specialty is Greek cuisine, offered with professional service and a family vibe. They have recently introduced a fresh, vibrant new spring/summer menu bringing the authentic flavours of Greece to a new level for central Christchurch. Owners Emilios and Rebecca Kotzikas offer comfort food that encapsulates the Greek way of life.
“Real Greek food from the heart; it’s all about passionate chefs, quality ingredients and traditional recipes dating back hundreds of years,” says Emilios. “It is about culture, comfort, family and life itself. We bring you the total Greek experience with affordable quality, authenticity and hospitality being our top priority.”
Stepping through the club doors is becoming part of one big happy Greek family.
Aside from the owners and the caring Athens staff, diners join this extended family, enjoying the atmosphere, the service and most of all the cuisine. Seduced by “Greek food fit for the gods”, and by generous portions, diners never leave unsatisfied or hungry.
Head chef Lawrence Harvey (aka Loz) uses mainly local ingredients – fresh produce, top quality meat and sustainable seafood – to create culinary delights rivalling those found in the Mediterranean. To ensure authenticity, Emilios’ family regularly help to “fine-tune” the flavours.
Regulars will be familiar with the tried and true, but because a majority of the menu has now been changed, it’s time to sail on in and check it out.
While maintaining Greek staples such as pasta, chicken, pork, lamb, steak and fish. Add to that new salads, fresh seasonal vegetables, beautiful presentation, and the result is next level cuisine with a stunning selection of dishes that stimulate the eyes and then the tastebuds.
Open seven nights from 5pm until late, the restaurant also has a new array of beautiful desserts on offer. Bookings are essential so make yours today.
