Everything is designed beautifully: the decoration, the menu and the food, however something seems to be missing, maybe it’s the lack of character within all the beauty. Beauty without character is… READ MORE

Inbi is a Japanese cuisine restaurant in the center of Athens, in upmarket Kolonaki. The ambiance is sleek, the service is fantastic although when I spilled some oil on my pretty silk blouse they didn’t have any stain remover spray which I thought was odd as it is a very high-end restaurant! Cocktails were delicious…. READ MORE
