ATHENS, Greece - To celebrate the sunny days and warm evenings, Galaxy Bar & Restaurant launches the summer season with the opening of the terrace and the outdoor bar. Life seems more beautiful from the top floor of Hilton Athens featuring amazing views, refreshing cocktails, great music and the exciting flavors of the new executive chef Dimitris Melemenis!

The talented Dimitris Melemenis has enriched the menu with new, original dishes which combine Mediterranean cuisine with international influences. Keen on using traditional, Greek products, Dimitris Melemenis has created a selection of dishes featuring Kalathaki cheese of Lemnos in the spinach salad with figs and walnuts, Sfela cheese of Messinia with the grilled chicken breast and Arsenico cheese of Naxos in the wild mushroom risotto. The menu still includes the popular culinary delights cooked on hot lava stones. Guests can choose to BBQ at the table and cook Talagani cheese with vegetables; sea bass with scallops and shrimps; or the Surf n ' Turf, which combines beef fillet and lobster tail marinated in spicy tsimitsouri sauce.

Guest can also enjoy juicy fillets perfectly grilled and accompanied by the side dish of their choice. Galaxy's sushi list includes new arrivals, such as the crispy salmon rolls (salmon in crispy crust, mayonnaise and avocado) and the Caesar rolls (homemade Caesar sauce, crab and avocado).

To finish the meal, guests can enjoy a delicious dessert from a frozen Mojito cream with mint jelly; amaretto semifreddo with almond crocant; or a velvety raspberry soup with lavender ice cream and meringue. For reservations, please call 210 7281407.
