Thumbs up to Head Chef Ilias Kariotoglou for executing perfectly classic recipes of the notorious Michele Roux in this charming bistro. We had the chance ti taste a couple of Chef's Kariotoglou own creations and I would love to see more of them in the menu since he is technically flawless and full of inspiration. Great setting at the roof... More

The kotopoulaki rotisserie was hands down one of the best meals I have ever had! I've been to many high end, expensive restaurants whose food quality doesn't even come close to the delicious food at Avenue. The poussin (young chicken) skin was crispy, had an amazing flavor, the parsnips sautéed perfectly, the Samos wine reduction was TO DIE for, and... More

We stopped here for lunch as part of a tour package and the meal was fantastic. There was a wide selection of local favorites and the presentation of every dish was beautiful. We enjoyed a variety of meats and cheeses, fresh salads, and delicious desserts. Fabulous food and a friendly staff!

The restaurant is in a hotel, but the chef is on site and visible ( checking plates etc). I had chicken which might have used another few minutes on the dangly business which cooked it. It was stuffed with paprika which I am not sure acted in its favor. the potatoe mixture was rather greasy. Salad ok... the food was... More

I didn't really expect too much from a hotel restaurant, so I was pleasantly surprised. I had the sea bass for dinner and it was excellent! Service was good too. A very nice experience.

I have seen Akis lots and lots of times on tv preparing delicious recipes and said to myself that I have to try one of his recipes. Although Avenue is based on famous chef Roux recipes Akis touch is crucial and his influence is obvious.I went with a friend of mine in December and had the winter salad with roasted... More
