Téchnē - New Greek cuisine


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


Situated in a renovated historic building with high aesthetic and a picturesque yard overlooking the sea, Téchnē serves carefully crafted dishes of modern Greek and Mediterranean 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. An 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.





Signature dishes include:


Pan roasted sea bream fillet, fine beans, Jerusalem artichoke, saffron sauce, pistachio


Octopus moussaka, smoked paprika


72h Black Angus short ribs, dark beer & honey glaze, spring onion crushed potatoes, grilled asparagus, king oyster mushroom


White chocolate & yogurt namelaka, caramelised phyllo, sour cherries, pistachios





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 an afternoon coffee under the shade of the iconic palm tree in the middle of its yard.



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.



Téchnē restaurant & social offers the ideal all-day spot, not to be missed by any visitor of Hydra island.
