Estia Restaurant – Greek Restaurants in Philadelphia
“Authentic Greek Cuisine without being in Greece”
Estia is a Greek-Mediterranean Restaurant located in the Philadelphia theatre district. This stunning restaurant specializes in whole grilled fish which are flown in from the Greek Islands, Portugal, and other Mediterranean areas.
The Estia Restaurant Experience & Atmosphere
Estia is very welcoming, warm, and inviting when first walking into the restaurant. Not only are you greeted by very friendly hostesses, but for the fact that you don’t feel like you are in Philadelphia. Could you be in Greece? Just maybe.
Estia wants you to feel like you are in a Greek home. They use materials such as hand-chiseled Jerusalem limestone floors, hand woven rugs, have vaulted ceilings, antiqued stucco walls, wood plank floors and exposed wood beams to evoke the traditional atmosphere. Some of the dining areas have arched entrance-ways that feature large rustic farm tables, dark wood chairs with white cushions and dining nooks with upholstered banquettes.
The menu has assorted Greek olives, traditional Greek salads, homemade breads, classic Greek dishes, charcoal-broiled Mediterranean octopus, grilled calamari, charcoal-broiled fresh Greek sardines and an array of authentic desserts and Greek coffee. As a guest, not only do you have an excellent selection of foods to choose from, but that can watch chefs cook your fish to perfection over a charcoal grill in the sparkling open kitchen.
Estia Restaurant in Philadelphia could be defined by someone in a short sentence as, “An upscale restaurant that has a romantic atmosphere and is charming with fine cuisine.” Explore the Greek-Mediterranean side of Philadelphia at this fine restaurant, Estia.
