AKS Hotels: New Gastronomy Experiences in Porto Heli by Chef Yiannis Lucacos
The restaurants of AKS Hotels in Porto Heli are promising unique gastronomy experiences this summer thanks to brand new menus curated by Greek Chef Yiannis Lucacos.
“It is a great pleasure to collaborate with AKS Hotels… The group’s values and philosophy on authentic hospitality, combined with the flavors and aromas of the Mediterranean, have been my inspiration for a renewed summer experience which, I hope, all our restaurant guests will never forget,” Chef Yiannis Lucacos said.
Chef Lucacos’ creations are now available at the Riviera restaurant in AKS Porto Heli hotel and at Porfyra restaurant in AKS Hinitsa Bay.
With his long experience and significant awards including the Toque d’Or, Yiannis Loukakos breathes new life into simple flavors that awaken the senses, covering a wide range of culinary preferences.
The two menus he created for AKS Hotels’ brand new restaurants – Riviera and Porfyra – give guests the opportunity to taste flavors inspired by Mediterranean traditions and pure local raw materials.
With a view to the beautiful bay of Porto Heli, the Riviera restaurant at AKS Porto Heli offers an array of flavors including the crispy panko-breaded kalamari with yuzu mayonnaise and wakame seaweed; the seafood “giouvetsi” with Kozani saffron, lime and basil; and the black Angus rib eye steak with chimichurri sauce and fries.
Overlooking the island of Spetses, the Porfyra restaurant at AKS Hinitsa Bay provides guests with unique gastronomy options that will excite even the most demanding palates.
These include the sea bass ceviche with passion fruit and lime sauce, chili pepper and chargrilled corn; the fresh fennel salad with Kalamata olives, fish roe cream and orange vinaigrette; and the chicken tandoori served with quinoa salad and yogurt dressing.
The AKS Hotels is active in Greece’s hospitality industry since 1999 with three hotels – two in the Peloponnese and one on Crete.
The group also includes the AKS Porto Heli Conference Center in its portfolio.
