At Anthos, our team will prepare it for you, tableside. On top that, new, creative touches will also be added this season including an exclusive olive oil tasting experience, as well as a stylish selection of signature after-dinner drinks.

A Farm to Table Tale

With a refined approach to Greek cuisine, Anthós’s menu is derived from ingredients sourced from our own organic, kitchen garden, along with our circle of carefully selected regional farms. Placing an emphasis on whole foods, and locally sourced fish and meats, our menu brims with fresh vegetables, fragrant herbs, and aromatic spices, culminating in vibrant, seasonal dishes each prepared to enhance the natural flavor of each ingredient. Guests are invited to dine al fresco, alongside our organic garden and observe the gastronomic journey.
