Custom icon Celebrating Life

Eating to the Greeks is all about celebrating life and enjoying yourself in the moment! We want to inspire multi-generational families and friends to come together around a table to share great food and quality time together.

Custom icon Authentically Greek

At Attikos, we celebrate a rich culture. From the rugged coastline of the Mediterranean to the equally majestic shores of KZN, we want to share our family traditions and flavours with you.

Custom icon YOU’RE TRULY WELCOME

Great food, conversation, togetherness and laughter are what motivate our Attikos family. We are driven by ‘philoxenia’, a sentiment, originating in ancient Greece, where hospitality was a value ranking high on a list of virtues.

Derived from the Ancient Greek.

Our Story

ATTIKOS: At·tikos, derived from the Ancient Greek Attikḗ (Αττική) Attikós (Ἀττικός), meaning “coast, rugged coast”.

On the rugged coastline of the Greek island where my father was born, my grandfather and I enjoyed many holidays with my family in the beautiful crescent bay of Karystos. I would watch the fisherman bring in their catch of the day to cook with family, neighbours and friends, all the while laughing, sharing stories and delighting in each other’s company. In this working town, with its cafes and tavernas owned by modest folk making much of their own produce themselves, the aromas of food went hand-in-hand with breezy summer nights. Cheese baskets, blue talisman beads, garlands of local sausages and octopus tentacles would dangle from railings like curtains telling a tale. The villagers would celebrate life every day, enjoying themselves in the moment, often turning a simple family dinner into an all-night affair.

Inspired by this way of life and the pleasures of eating together, we created Attikos, to bring the authentic feel of the Mediterranean to Ballito, to celebrate our rich culture and love for food and family, to introduce you to the ancient Greek sentiment of philoxenia, whereby everyone feels truly welcome.

Our hope is that you will experience this and create your own beautiful memories around one of our tables, the Karystos way.

Inspired by the Mediterranean way of life
