Téchnē - Τέχνη

Carefully crafted dishes of Mediterranean & modern Greek cuisine, along with creative drinks & speciality coffee.

 

Téchnē is a term for craftsmanshipskill or art derived from the Greek word τέχνη. But since 2016Téchnē is also the name of the most renowned restaurant, café & cocktail bar on Hydra.

 

 
Situated by the sea in a renovated historic building with high aesthetic and a picturesque courtyard overlooking Avlaki bay, Téchnē restaurant & social serves carefully crafted dishes of Mediterranean and modern Greek cuisine, along with creative drinks and speciality coffee. With its culinary excellence and professional management, Téchnē has undoubtedly set a new standard for Hydra’s restaurant scene.
 

 

Having as compass his love for local ingredients, Téchnē’s executive chef and co-owner Yiannis Michalopoulos, has developed distinct flavours inspired by the rich heritage of Greek gastronomy combined with modern techniques. Acclaimed representative of the so-called New Greek Cuisine, Yiannis had been a head chef in awarded restaurants in London and Greece before deciding to join his childhood friend, young entrepreneur Jason Barios, in co-founding Téchnē.  

 

 

EXPERTLY CRAFTED DISHES

 

Signature dishes include: seafood orzo pasta “kritharoto”, deconstructed “pastitsio” with slow-cooked beef, grilled octopus with fava beans purée & onion jam and custard filled phyllo pastry dessert “galaktobureko”. 

 

 
In the morning, Téchnē also serves delicious breakfast including traditional scrambled eggs “strapatsada”, homemade jams and pastries, fruit salads, Greek yoghurt, fresh juices and smoothies.
 
 

SIGNATURE COCKTAILS / SPECIALITY COFFEE

 

Apart from its fine cuisine, Téchnē has been popular also for its drinks menu, which includes speciality coffee, inspired signature cocktails, a sophisticated wine list and craft beers from Greek microbreweries. Thanks to its breath-taking sea views, Téchnē is the ideal spot for an aperitif cocktail around sunset or a morning coffee under the shade of the iconic palm tree in the middle of its courtyard.

 

The location in a former boat house with a rustic decor of stone and wood creates a homely-chic feeling. The most impressive element of the interior is the open-plan kitchen, as guests can interact with the chef and admire their skilled cooking.
