A wonderful view and great food

We were staying at the hotel but hadn't ventured onto the 8th floor until dinner on the first night. The view! All of Athens spread around you and the Parthenon just sitting there in the near distance! The staff were friendly and helpful and our meal was very good, adequately proportioned dishes... read more

This fine dining restaurant has an excellent view of the Acropolis. What sets this fine dining restaurant apart from others is the small bar adjoining it. It gives the restaurant a vibrant feeling and buzz so it is not stuffy at all. We were in GB Roof Garden for dinner. The service, food and wines were EXCELLENT! We ordered for... More

The restaurant was beautiful and the view was equally exquisite. The wait staff were very friendly. Unfortunately, the food was the worst part about the experience. The appetizers were nice, but the main courses were a let down. My boyfriend's lamb was chewy and my pasta was only okay. It was very expensive for the quality of food that we... More

Expected more from this restaurant. The decor is poor and definately not classy. The food is not above average as well as the service. The music is a tragedy. It is hardly heard from the speakers -it would be better if there was no mousic at all. It is dissapointing, especially if comparesd with the ground floor bar-reastaurant of the... More

The breakfast buffet was incredible with selections that would appeal to international travellers. There was something from many countries and the staff was willing to accomodate special requests. The view from every table was breathtaking including a view of the Acropolis.

This restaurant served appalling overpriced overcooked food. The amazing Tudor Hall restaurant next door was much better!

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.
