Gargaretta

RESTAURANTS

This spacious and cheerful bistro in Koukaki is named after the Italian Gargaretta family, whose estates were in the area centuries ago.

The kitchen serves breakfast and brunch, while in the evening chefs Manolis Makrygiannakis and Marios Pirpiridis propose tapas based on traditional Greek recipes and containing local products. You can also taste platters of cheese and cold cuts with a Greek or foreign wine. For isolation, book the table in the red room.
