Did the singer Grigoris Bithikotsis ever imagine, when in 1969 he sang through a 45 rpm disc the song “Stou Belle amie to ouzerie”, that almost five decades later, this famous ‘’ouzerie’’ named ‘’Belle Amie’’, which had opened on the ground floor of an impressive neoclassical building in the heart of Piraeus, would reopen in 2013 under the same name “Belle Amie”?

The ‘’ouzerie’’ of the song first opened in the late 60s, while on the ground floor of the building was also hosted the hotel “Crete”. The owner was a former sailor, who – according to urban legend – gave that name to his business, after hearing the French phrase ‘’belle amie’’ from the girls in the port of Marseilles, where he disembarked during his travels.

In 2013 two persons with vision, the entrepreneur Dimitris Panagopoulos and the Interior Architect Kosmas Karavas, took the initiative to revive the space loaded with so many memories and turn it into a gem for the pedestrian street of Angelou Metaxa and the entire Pasalimani. The two-level interior of the all-day Bar-Restaurant shapes its atmospheric and cosmopolitan identity through seemingly disparate furniture and objects, which in a unique way blend together creating an atmosphere of luxury and relaxed mood.


Belle Amie takes immense pride in promoting its creative Greek fusion food recipes, inviting patrons to embark on a culinary adventure that transcends traditional boundaries. At the heart of this gastronomic journey is a commitment to reimagining classic Greek dishes by infusing them with innovative flavors and contemporary flair. The restaurant’s menu serves as a testament to the chef’s artistry, seamlessly blending the time-honored ingredients of Greek cuisine with global inspirations. Guests are treated to an array of inventive dishes that dance on the palate, showcasing a harmonious fusion of textures, aromas, and tastes.

The promotion of Belle Amie’s creative Greek fusion food extends beyond the dining experience. The restaurant actively engages with its community through social media platforms, sharing behind-the-scenes glimpses of the culinary process and highlighting the thought and craftsmanship that goes into each dish. Through tantalizing visuals and engaging storytelling, Belle Amie creates a narrative around its innovative recipes, encouraging food enthusiasts to not only indulge in a memorable dining experience but also to appreciate the artistry behind the fusion of Greek culinary traditions and contemporary creativity.



Belle Amie is like a canvas that has been designed with attention to detail. The intense neoclassical elements of the two-storey building are enhanced by influences from Berlin bars, offering a traveler’s sensation to the visitors. The retro-maximalist design takes us back in time from the bistrot of Paris to the Berlin cabarets of the interwar period. Belle Amie is a crossroads between yesterday and today. Handmade carpets, antiques that have been chosen with nostalgia for the past, chandeliers, black marble columns, portraits of people who served the arts in imposing frames on deep green painted walls, golden fringes compose a dreamy setting of unparalleled aesthetics.
