Updated June 30, 2018 08:52:03 Hadrian Villa is opening its first new restaurant in over 40 years.
The restaurant is called Hadrian Serenata and will feature fresh Mediterranean fare, a range of wines and craft cocktails, as well as traditional Greek fare.
The new restaurant is located at the end of the Romanesque walkway of Hadrian villa on the northern side of Hadrians resort.
It’s a 10,000-square-metre space with a glass front, a bar and seating.
“We’re thrilled to open the Hadrian and I’m proud to be able to share this special place with you,” owner Yannis Dokoupilos told the ABC.
He added that Hadrian was “a family destination, and we wanted to offer guests a place to be part of that family”.
The restaurant, which opened earlier this year, is located in the courtyard of Hadrias villa.
The first diners will be able taste the first course at the restaurant on Friday.
“The food will be fresh and simple,” Dokoupsi said.
“There’s a Mediterranean menu, but there will also be a wide range of wine from the region, as it’s been around for centuries.”
He added: “We want guests to feel that they are part of the Hadrians family, and it’s a special place for us.”
The restaurant will feature a variety of dishes from local, Mediterranean, and international restaurants, but will also include traditional Greek dishes.
The menu is being developed with the help of the local Greek community, and will be expanded over time.
“As a Greek, I know that Hadriana is very important to me,” Doki said.
Hadrian is a famous villa in Greece’s north, with a number of unique shops and eateries.
It was the location of the Greek army’s first and only fortification during the Second World War, where the army’s commander, General Panos Papadimitriou, was killed.
Hadrian is a popular tourist destination for locals, and is a must-visit place for visitors to the area.
The island is home to the world-famous Hadrian gate, which is named after the Greek general who led the defence of the island during the Great War.
