We went for an early dinner on a Saturday afternoon. Place was quiet, couple of guests only. We tried some appetizers + dips only which were pretty good. Didn't get to the main dishes. Service was good. If you want to have a taste of Indian or Mexican you should be satisfied with the choice of this restaurant.

During my stay in greece I have visited several restaurants of many types. Altamira was a unique experience as far as food and music are concerned. I will probably visit again next time I will come in greece

I first visited Altamira in Athens about ten years ago, since then I've revisited it on many occasions. This is one of the rare restaurants where I discovered new tastes and flavors from all corners of the world. Indeed, the menu includes Indian, Asian, Mexican and Arabic dishes. The atmosphere is very cozy and relaxing. This is a value to... More

Had dinner on 15 Mar 14 in Altamira after reading some Tripadvisor reviews. Overall the experience was excellent. The first impressions on walking upstairs were confirmed by very convivial surroundings. The initial service was excellent, as we had not booked on a Saturday evening, and there were few tables free. The menu is very interesting, and it is a change... More

I have visited Altamira restaurant many times and I must say that above all I like the building itself. It feels like you get in one of the old houses of Athens with a wooden staircase and tall ceiling.The food is very good with many choices in different cuisines and the wine list also satisfactory. Overall I would suggest it... More

me and my partner used trip advisor to search for a decent Chinese restaurant in central Athens when this restaurant popped up so we set off one evening to find it and really struggled despite asking locals numerous times! it was tucked away behind a church and barely showed any resemblance of being a restaurant at all. When we arrived... More

You can choose from 4 entirely different menus, For example you can have a Mexican starter, a Chinese main and an Arabic or Indian desert if you wish. Every time I go there I take a lot of time to decide what to order. Service is pretty good and relatively quick.Nice(mainly jazz) music. Price is about 25-30 euros for two... More
