The “Toques d’Or” (Golden Caps) are the only Greek gastronomy awards and are granted to the best restaurants in Greece by Athinorama and Alpha Guide. The institution, starting from 1992, has been present in the cultural life of Greece for over 20 years now.

Its existence has been a catalyst for the upgrading of the quality of the country’s restaurants. It is the prime cause of the development of chefs through fair competition and contributes to the modernization of our national cuisine and for educating the public.
Every year, the committee of tasters of “Athinorama”, a large team of specialized journalists–connoisseurs with many years of experience, unfailingly monitors the international gastronomic happenings, travel throughout the country, is informed about any developments and evaluates according to the internationally accepted rules of restaurant evaluation.
