3 Reasons to Visit Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens

A refreshingly short drive from central Athens, with views of the glittering Saronic Gulf, Pelagos is the culinary jewel in the crown of Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens.

With love in the air and most attractions enjoying their quietest visitor numbers of the year, it’s a great time of year to explore the Greek capital and Astir Peninsula - and its many fabulous cultural and culinary offerings - in relative seclusion.

A Heartfelt Reunion – Friends of Pelagos

February 10 and 11, 2023 heralds the return of the popular “Friends of Pelagos” series, with Chef Luca Piscazzi reuniting with French maestro Maxime Gilbert of ÉCRITURE Hong Kong for a delectable showcase that alternates between the two former colleagues.

Named South China Morning Post’s Chef of the Year 2021-2022, Gilbert was Picazzi’s former culinary partner-in-crime at two-Michelin-starred Amber at The Landmark, Mandarin Oriental (2015 to 2016). He then went on to found ÉCRITURE Hong Kong: a French fine-dining phenomena that received two Michelin stars in its first eight months of opening.

For just 2 nights only, the dazzling Piscazzi-Gilbert menu showcases the artistry of these two leading lights. Chef Piscazzi kicks off proceedings with Amberjack Ceviche - salsify tagliolini and "cacio e pepe" - hotly followed by Chef Gilbert’s Caviar and Uni Tart featuring Royal Caviar Club Schrenckii and sea urchin.

The dance continues with Chef Piscazzi’s Dover Sole Meuniere with saffron, black olive and liquorice, artfully echoed by Chef Gilbert’s John Dory with Kakinoki Take, ikura, chorizo, and sauce vin jaune. Priced at EUR 145 per person for an eight-course set menu, it’s a homage to creative friendship not to be missed.

Served With Love – A Valentine’s Feast

How better to celebrate the official “day of love” than with a special six-course Valentine’s Day Menu at a restaurant that earned a Michelin star within six months of opening and a place on the 50 Best Discovery List, 2022?

Feast on romantic views of the Athens Riviera alongside Pelagos wonders such as the newly-unveiled Ossetra Caviar Spaghetti and Creekstone Beef Bourguignon.

The evening is brought to a sweet conclusion with Chocolate Souffle with metaxa ice cream to share. EUR 125 per person, with a glass of Champagne Rose each.

Seasonal Delights – Artisan Winter Menus

Showcasing the cuisine of his Italian childhood and French heritage skills honed during an illustrious international career, Chef Piscazzi’s Winter Menus pair traditional techniques with surprising ingredients for a creative culinary adventure. 

Two 7 course selections - 180° Land and 180° Sea - take classic winter favourites such as bourguignon and foie gras to innovative heights, while a nine-course 360° Chef’s Menu unites the best of both for the ultimate winter surf and turf discovery.

Thank you for sharing such a detailed review about ethiopian airlines in your post. I am an avid traveller and keep reading flight reviews to assess the options available. Your review particularly drew my attention because you have shared so many pictures to capture every aspect of the flight experience. It is a very nice effort.
