Spectacular view and excellent dinner

I can't imagine a better dining experience in Athens. The view of the Acropolis was breathtaking. The food was excellent and service was very good. Well worth the cost for a special evening.

This restaurant is on the roof of the hotel. It has a panoramic view of the Acropolis, which is beautiful at night. It has outside seating and some inside with glass walls. There is a dress code, although confusing as to when enforced. We saw some people in shorts but my husband asked to change into pants. The host asked... More

From our welcome, to the extra special table, service, food, and wine recommendations, this restaurant is world class, leaving aside the not inconsequential splendour of its outlook over the Parthenon, and much of the capital. Daily specials all worth trying, and the ceviche trilogy, buffalo mozzarella, and pasta dishes all excellent. Lovely experience, all three times we visited.

Their breakfast buffet was extensive and delicious. The dinners were well prepared gourmet and a nice variety of options were available. Views of the Acropolis were spectacular, even prettier at dusk when the lights are on. The slightly snooty staff at dinner didn't mar the experience. Fine dining.

We brought some friends here for lunch in mid May and had a fantastic meal. I had the pumpkin risotto which was delicious and perfectly cooked and my dining companions ordered different pasta dishes, all of which were excellent. The service was attentive, efficient and friendly and they have a great wine selection about which the staff were very well... 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.
