Mercato … post-aviation tartufo

When I visited: August 2019

Location: Greece, Athens (within the Four Seasons Astir Palace hotel)

Rating in the Michelin Guide: Not in the Guide

Dining Owl Hoot rating: 4/5

What to wear: Men – jeans or nice trousers and a shirt; women – jeans and a smart top or a smart dress

Ambience: Nice terrace views outside, busy and sleek inside

Course of the meal: Tartufo

If I could change one thing: More fish options


Visiting Mercato after a fairly long journey is a treat; you can enjoy fancy cocktails and simple but good-quality Italian food. We had the Lavender Aviation and Cucumber Chill cocktails, which were both refreshing, and the beef carpaccio, steak with vegetables and the Mercato pizza.

However, the highlight was the ridiculously good Tartufo dessert – one of the best things I had tasted in a while.
