Nestled in the spectacular Stavros Niarchos Cultural Foundation in Athens, Delta Restaurant, a Michelin-starred gem, offers an experience transcending traditional dining boundaries. Guided by three cornerstones – Gastronomy, Sustainability, and Culture, Delta unfolds a mysterious Haute Cuisine narrative that leaves diners both thrilled and satiated.

The result is a strikingly minimalist yet utterly perfect menu, each dish a testament to the potential of homegrown Greek ingredients.

But the innovation doesn’t stop there. International techniques, including fermentation and Scandinavian preservation, are fused into the mix, transforming traditional perceptions of taste. Delta isn’t just another restaurant; it’s a gastronomic game-changer.
