ABOUT STELIOS NIKOLAIDES

Stelios opened Andria Restaurant in 1992, and was later joined by his brother, Marios. They named the restaurant after their mother. Their main aim has always been to provide gourmet food of the highest quality. They make everything in-house and even grow the majority of their vegetables in their own kitchen garden. Andria is famous for serving the very finest of steaks. The site on which the restaurant is built was originally a vineyard, in the days before Coral Bay was developed.

WHAT’S ON THE MENU?

Canapés will be served during the presentation, and then a 3-course dinner will be enjoyed, which has been specially selected by the Executive Chef and Owner of Andria, Stelios Nikolaides. The meal will start with Buffalo Burrata Mozzarella, smoked over olive wood, served with a Tomato Confit, Rucola Leaves and a Pumpkin Sauce. The main course is a Grilled Fillet Steak with Sea Salt, served with Carrots, Asparagus, Tomatoes, Mushrooms and Crushed Potatoes, with a choice of Black Peppercorn or Mushroom Sauce.
