Locally-sourced Contemporary Greek Food at the Herodion Hotel
The Herodion Hotel sits right at the foot of the Acropolis. It has two award-winning restaurants run by the same kitchen: the popular summer rooftop bar and restaurant Point A and the ground-floor restaurant Atrium, which is open year-round. You can read my review of Point A here.
Over the last few years, the hotel has been seriously stepping up its gourmet game. Each year the menu is revised. They keep the most popular dishes and introduce some new and unexpected items. It also provides talented chefs Manolis Mavrigiannakis and Marios Pirpiridis with the opportunity to keep developing and challenging their creativity. All ingredients are locally sourced and carefully selected to give customers a taste of Greece.
Sunday Lunch at Atrium
I came to Herodion’s Atrium Greek Bistrot to try their new Sunday set menu. The concept is a five-course menu family or sharing style at your table.
For example, the first course, a delicious carrot velouté soup, comes in a large pan with a ladle rather than individual bowls. The soup had hints of ginger and orange, bright and refreshing. I had a few servings!
Next, came a basket of tempura vegetables with raita dip, similar to tzatziki. In addition, we were served a fresh salad of rucola, pumpkin, honey and anthotyro cheese.
However, my favourite dish was the main course of shrimp orzo pasta. The big juicy prawns and silky tomato sauce went down all too easily. This is serious comfort food. Despite the generous portions, we finished everything.
Finally, for dessert, we enjoyed beautiful pears baked in red wine with yoghurt. Delicious, and a real hit on my Instagram!
Don’t miss out on Sunday lunches at the Herodion’s Atrium restaurant. The menu changes each week with a focus on seasonal ingredients.
Atrium is open everyday from 10:00

Your pictures are phenomenal and this post has my stomach growling! How yum! I’ve never been to Greece but reading through your post makes me want to visit, especially this hotel cafe!
Thank you! You should definitely visit Greece! Start with a weekend in Athens and then go see the amazing islands!
Oh my word! What a beautiful atmosphere and that food looks delicious! I believe this will have to be added to my bucket list!
The hotel is really amazing, and it’s family run! In the summertime their rooftop restaurant has the best view of the Acropolis, as it’s right at it’s doorstep with fantastic food. It’s also the perfect location for a weekend trip to Athens. I’ll be writing up a blog post about that one day soon!
I’d love to try and recreate that salad. Pumpkin and honey…WHO KNEW!? xoxo
I’m one of those honey on everything people… Truffle honey on camembert cheese, honeyed roast parsnips and carrots, honey glaze pork… I could go on forever. Also, sweet potato mash with maple syprup and lime! 😀
Looks and sounds super delicious. I’m sure it was a great experience to enjoy lunch there! 🙂
I’m not a shrimp person but the rest of the food sounded (and looked!) so delicious, especially the soup. I also really love the trees inside the restaurant.
The menu changes every week! 🙂
