Silly to say, but this is a must see restaurant. Evening and nighttime view of Acropolis (Parthenon) a bucket list item. Will remember the view long after the menu items, however they were very good too.

Very bougie, view of the Acopoli. Drinks are pricey but exactly what you would expect for a hotel this nice. In the Plaka area however I thought the view was nicer at the Herodion rooftop bar in South Plaka.

Absolutely superb. Comfortably at the bottom of top price spectrum these guys have excellent lobster, world class tiramisu, vintage champers and vegan items on the menu. Surpasses the celeb patronised Dionysus restaurant, adjacent to the Acropolis entrance, on every level.

Food was delicious -- highly recommend the gnocchi appetizer. Nice wine list. They make a mean martini, too. View of the Parthenon at night is specactular. This is in the heart of Athens right by the Parliament building, and we were there in the height of the financial crisis/protests, but had NO issues. So glad we didn't skip it due... More

Me and my partner made a reservation well in advance in order to find the perfect sunset time. The view was amazing and the dishes were perfectly cooked and well presented. The service was very attentive and the sommelier was extremely helpful. Well done guys.

Only issue is that the menu is "international" so there is not much in the way of Greek food. Otherwise food quality, service and atmosphere are hard to fault.

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.
