Located within the Divani Caravel Hotel, in Athens, Greece, is the simply marvelous Brown's Restaurant. When you walk through the doors, you are at once struck by the ambiance and formal decor. This is the place you would want to take your business connections for a power lunch, or to seal a deal over a gourmet dinner. But, there is more than just a beautiful atmosphere here, when you enter the doors you are greeted with a smile and treated with wonderful caring. The service is impeccable, and the food is not only delectable in taste, but visually pleasing as well. There is a wide selection of dishes, but the fresh vegetables are such that they could stand as their own dish. The Chef, Kostas Rigas, is a master at the preparation of dishes which range from traditional Greek, to wonderful presentations of sea foods, poultry and meats. What was truly welcoming about Chef Rigas, was his willingness to work with my gluten intolerant wife, and to make or alter meals to take care of her needs. The food that she had, was in her words: "simply wonderful!" There are amazing wines to be sampled in Greece, and our waiter Josif Malliankias, was a master at suggesting just the right wine to go with our meals, each one a regional wine and his selections for us, were right on the mark, every, single time. Josif's remarkable suggestions for dishes that we would enjoy, helped to make every visit to this place memorable. As you linger over after dinner drinks, it was pleasant to discuss the day, with the Maitre D's Artemios Konstantinou and Nikos Kardiasmeivos, and receive suggestions for other places to visit within the area. Brown's became a place where we could retire to after a day of sightseeing, and have a nice, long and memorable dinner.

Brown’s is a beautiful formal restaurant with impeccable service and wonderful food. The people were top notch, strictly formal but with a smile. The food was elegant and plated perfectly. It is expensive but you get what you pay for. Perfect for a special evening.

Staying in the hotel looking for a lazy diner made us ending up in Brown's Bar Restaurant. Ok, it looked all right and the prices have been reasonable for a 5 star hotel. So we just decided to give it a try. And it was a superb choice!

The spaghetti carbonara was exactly done the way it should be. Bacon, creamy and cooked to the perfection. This was a great choice.

The recommendation to go for the lamb chops seemed to turn out into a real delight. Juicy, tasty and with marvel sauces. The veggies (like asparagus) have been really crunchy and well seasoned.

Their wine list was quite complete despite that the offered choice from Santorini would need swiftly improvement. Large-scale mainstream wine producers are not that convincing despite that is was an honest recommendation.

The waiting team was extremely attentive and up to the job. They even offered our boys a kitchen tour which caused delight.

I recently visited Brown's for their newly launched Sunday brunch. The food was excellent, the service impeccable and friendly, and the ambiance old school luxury, although the prices were very normal (€14 for a huge club sandwich with salmon and fries). They serve excellent smoothies as well. Great place! Great food!
