Christmas dinner in Athens

Are you traveling to Athens for the Christmas period, and looking for a place to celebrate the holidays? Or do you live in Athens and are looking to have Christmas dinner in a restaurant or hotel instead of at home? Below, we have listed the best places for a fancy Christmas dinner in Athens.

Benefits of Christmas dinner away from home

Before we name some of our favorite Christmas dinner venues, here are some of the advantages of having Christmas dinner away from home.

  1. No cooking or cleaning: One of the biggest advantages of having Christmas dinner at a hotel is that you don’t have to worry about cooking or cleaning up afterward. You can sit back, relax, and enjoy the meal without any stress.
  2. Professional chefs: Hotels often have professional chefs who prepare the meals, so you can expect high-quality food that is cooked to perfection.
  3. Variety: Many hotels offer a variety of dishes to choose from, so you can try something new or stick with your favorite holiday classics.
  4. Atmosphere: Hotels often go all out with their holiday decorations, creating a festive atmosphere that can be hard to replicate at home.
  5. Entertainment: Some hotels offer live entertainment during the holidays, such as carolers or musicians, which can add to the festive atmosphere.
  6. Socializing: Christmas dinner at a hotel can be a great way to socialize with family and friends without having to worry about hosting duties.
  7. No dishes to wash: After the meal, you can simply leave the dishes behind and head back to your room without any cleanup.
