Brillant has been born from the intense desire of its owners (Karatarakis family) and the creative imagination and execution of the architect Stavros Litinas. The goal is to alert the guests’ senses. All five of them! Of course taste is the most important, while being in a restaurant, but the rest four is also important to get satisfied too!
The unique architectural style, the innovative cuisine, the superb service and the inspiring atmosphere, make Brillant Gourmet Restaurant, the ideal place to dine in Heraklion Crete.
The industrial-like area and the environment are mainly suitable for dinner. Black and Silver are dominating the space. Eye-catching is the fulgent tile floor with the metallic flakes. The bar, made of black lac and inox, is situated slant wisely in the background of the central section. The peeled ceiling of the Bar is a characteristic element, following the same mode with asymmetrical optical fibers hanging.
The left section is the main part of the restaurant and is of linear layout, whilst the apposite emplacement of a speculum doubles the sensation of space depth.
A rusty metal wall of ceramic tiles covers the sideway surface of this section, which has four long folding screens made of glass and iron.
Black lack furniture. The chairs have particularly high backrest, reminding of the famous 20th century designer Machintosh, but having a more minimal approach.
Organdie runners, spherical candle-holders, motif of goblet glasses in diagonal pattern, are some of the particular elements of the “art de table”
The spherical luminaries are hanging from the visible electrical racks of the ceiling, which are next to the inox pipes of the air condition and ventilators and come to a complete counterpoint with the table’s luxury.
The right section of the restaurant is of similar design, having a full visual contact with the rest of the space. Only one, four-meter long table is placed in this section. From there, one can see the age-long olive tree that is growing at the main entrance of the restaurant.
Last but not least, a very special element indicating the style and the ambience of the place is the surface of quiet water, filled with rose leafs, that is located on the floor, at both sides of the restaurant, along the front wall.
