Candle-lit tables, matched by the rich palette of the sun dipping in the horizon, and an elevated menu where options segue from succulent scallops and oysters to impeccably grilled Wagyu beef steak paired with an impressive wine list, makes 40 the most compelling choice for seaside dining.

Book ahead to access the restaurant, even after the beach is closed to the public at 8pm. Head Chef Yiannis Markadakis, who also helms the other restaurants of the group (Papillon in Psychico, Dock and 1937 at the Vouliagmeni Nautical Club) crafts a menu that boasts such enticing suggestions as King crab and mango tartare, lobster and Wagyu beef steak, seared to perfection.
