Bistro Lutetia in the Athenian Riviera

With the summer season now at its peak it would be a nice idea to visit the Athenian Riviera for a nice dinner by the sea. I recently had the chance to dine along with my friends from Travel Bloggers Greece in Bistro Lutetia, part of Somewhere Hotel in Vouliagmeni.

Somewhere is a brand new boutique hotel with 11 suites, all offering amazing sea views. There, on the beautiful terrace by the pool we sat for dinner. Our night began with an amazing cocktail. I chose Ginger Power based on Vodca and ginger which was accompanied by a variaty of canapes made by salami, prosciuto ans salmon.

We were next served a selection of appetizers one tastier than the other. My favorite was the Mozzarella di Bufala served with crispy prosciutto. Others included Beef Carpaccio with truffle oil and Prawns Ceviche.

We then sampled a variety of salads. The Quinoa salad with peas, avocado and cucumber was simply amazing.

It was then time for the main course which included spaghetti with prawns, a grilled grouper for the seafood lovers and Roasted Poussin with baby potatoes and Grilled Tenderloin with mashed celeriac for the meat lovers like me. Everything was cooked to perfection and the meat was very juicy and tender.

Although I was full after all these delicious dishes, I always have space left for dessert. And what a dessert; Creme Brulee with berries, Key Lime Pie with mango sorbet and Gianduja chocolate tart with vanilla ice cream.  They were all so heavenly I can’t decide which one I liked best. It was the first time I tried Key Lime Pie and I found it delicious. My friends informed me that it was made exactly as it is made in the USA.

This incredible menu with fresh local ingredients was created by the famous Greek chef Christoforos Peskias and was executed by chefs Markos Karakatsoulas, Adonis Kollias and Dimitris Psomas.
