Rules for Dining Out in Greece Relaxed Further

Restaurants can now also make use of their indoor spaces, with upper limits on the number of customers per square meter.

Starting Saturday, bars, cafes and restaurants in Greece can use their indoor spaces for customers.

There are limits, however, on the maximum number of customers at any one time: one customer per 2.2 square meters (23.7 sq. ft.) of usable space will be allowed, and, as before, no more than six customers per table.

Customers are not permitted to stand by the bar (to prevent overcrowding) and, if a buffet is served, serving must be done by restaurant staff; customers must not come into contact with the food on display.

Restaurants in hotels also open Saturday and foods and drinks can be provided in open-air events.

On beaches, shops can sell food and drinks, including alcoholic ones, and play music, but authorities recommend against the gathering of crowds around these spots.
