Kifissia welcomed a new addition in May 2016. Zambri is an all-day colonial style (in Maori zambri means colony) cafe-restaurant, housed in the mansion in which once hosted the legendary Beau Brummel and later the Chateau.
Zambri is not the regular haunt you may be used to. It has a unique personality, which is omnipresent, and focuses on providing high end services. Passing through the wooden entrance, you get the feeling you walk into a colonial country house –Giorgos Panteloukas and his company, GJP Design & Construction, took care of the design– and you are automatically transferred to a very exotic place. Stone, wood and a number of plants (impressive cacti, towering palm trees, etc.), vintage tiles, impressive lighting dominate the venue, which has the largest courtyard in Kifissia and is admittedly one of the most impressive places you’ll find.
You will also be impressed by its value for money high end services. Every morning at Zambri you will smell the distinct aroma of the single blend coffee it serves and choose your favourites from the tempting daily brunch suggestions (omelette, scrambled eggs, pie of the day, burgers, praline pancakes etc.).
The scenery changes as night settles in. The highlights of the menu are inspired dishes from the modern Greek and the Mediterranean cuisine which satisfy even the most demanding customers. Among them stand out the beef fillet, the beef tartare, piglet in the oven, pork tenderloin, bream and dry aged rib eye. Zambri Tower, a sweet made with little choux, ice cream, caramel and chocolate ganache and the orange souffle are ideal choices to conclude your meal with the perfect desert.
The Zambri experience will not be full without ordering one of the house suggestions included in its interesting cocktail list or one of the smoked whiskies, refined rums etc. housed in its premium 150 sq.m. cellar.
