Stunning views

The staff were very polite and attentive to us. Our table had a great view of the Acropolis. Food was great but not fantastic, drinks very expensive. Around €90 each for a 3 course dinner plus drinks on top but at Athens most luxurious hotel roof top restaurant it's what you pay for. Worth the trip!

On the 8th floor of the historic hotel of Grand Bretagne in Syntagma Square, you find the Roof Garden restaurant and bar. I had lunch there and I enjoyed it. The view superb, you feel that you can reach out there over the terrace and reach Acropolis. The glittering waters of the Saronic gulf supplemented the superb view and almost... More

Yes, the food was excellent and the choice was diverse and of quality. yes, the staff was helpful and very knowledgeable. However, on top of this, a dinner with the view of the Akropolis is unbeatable. Not to be missed.

Very romantic bar/lounge and restaurant. On the roof terrace, there's a great view of the Parthenon. The food and great are excellent and the service is awesome! I highly recommend visiting this restaurant in the evening, even if only for drinks. The view of the city at night from the terrace is amazing!

We were a little put off by the price of €395 for the New Years Eve event but had dinner here from the A la Carte menu another evening and were extremely impressed. The food was imaginative, well presented and top quality with friendly helpful service to match. And then of course there is the view of the illuminated Acropolis... More

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
