Under the starry sky of Athens, the sacred rock of the Acropolis and the illuminated Parthenon sculptures that stand proudly at the Acropolis Museum in walking distance, ΡΟΙΝΤ a welcomes you to its open space, on Herodion Hotel’s roof garden, in the heart the historic centre.
Your gastronomic journey all over the world starts in a modern venue boasting a wooden deck, plain design and relaxing atmosphere. Point a Bar Menu’s suggestions will take you from Spain and France to Mexico and Japan. But whatever they may take you, your reference point will remain at Point a. Crispy nigiri with Santorini white aubergine and rice powder, Foie Gras in Aegina pistachio macaron with apricot chutney, braised beef from Thrace in sourdough bread and fried egg, baked salmon with black garlic miso in a green apple mojito are perfectly paired with a glass of wine or an imaginative signature cocktail.
The restaurant’s main menu features creative Greek cuisine dishes as the chef focuses on delicate flavours that will satisfy even the most demanding gourmants. Those that stand out are the honey dumplings with manouri cheese from Elassona, the signature stuffed tomatoes, the salted mackerel with green apple, celeriac and spicy herb sauce, the Mount Athos salad (crunchy octopus, smoked aubergine, peppers and pickled cucumber), the ravioli with octopus ragout in a broth sauce, the lamb with Naxian “patoudo” with stuffed chards, sweet potato, and baked garlic, the kakavia fish soup with sea urchin roe, Mykonian xinotyri cheese and smoked dentex and the shrimp dolma with artichokes, summer truffle and celeriac.
The roof of ΡΟΙΝΤ a is also ideal for a refreshing drink from its extensive bar, an inspired signature cocktail from the list or a glass of wine from unique local Greek wineries.
The combination of the creations of the chef and the bartender –they all use selected fresh ingredients from small Greek producers– makes the Tapas Cocktails, a food pairing between a cocktail and its delicious accompanying proposal.
Undisputed protagonist of ΡΟΙΝΤ a is its unsurpassed view of the Acropolis drawing everybody’s attention.
