Téchnē - Τέχνη
Carefully crafted dishes of Mediterranean & modern Greek cuisine, along with creative drinks & speciality coffee.
Téchnē is a term for craftsmanship, skill or art derived from the Greek word τέχνη. But since 2016, Téchnē is also the name of the most renowned restaurant, café & cocktail bar on Hydra.
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”.
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.
MAJESTIC AURA OF THE INFINITE BLUE SEA
Téchnē restaurant & social can be booked for parties and private functions up to 130 guests. Whatever your requirements, you can expect attention to detail and a truly memorable event at Téchnē.
