Description:

slightly smaller than a common british ant- it moved fairly quickly, but looking at the pictures, the body shape isn't ant-like and what do you make of those antenna? on a bar table by the beach.

Assassin bug perhaps?

Looking at the eyes on the side of the head and the overall stance, that'd be my first guess. Not too familiar with Greek species so can't help further.
