Grande Place to be

The concept is excellent in general. The view, the service, the Athens spirit is spread around. The only negative was that its a bit overpriced even if i understand of course that its the concept you are paying. The wifi was i bit problematic the time i ve been their.

This open air rooftop restaurant has a spectacular view of the Acropolis. It will take your breath away. It is a must for anyone visiting Athens. We dined here for breakfast (twice) and dinner (once). It is the perfect place to start your morning in Athens and the perfect place to watch the sunset during dinner/drinks. The breakfast menu is...

Very jet set! An amazing view, ambiance, quality and service. Must do in Athens. From entering the hotel lobby to travelling in the lift to the roof you can get excited. Not only is the menu a choice of fantastic meat, fish and vegetarian dishes you can also just go for lunch. Evening meals especially sunset viewing Athens and the... More

Honestly, the food is great, but the view to the Acropolis from the roof at night is brilliant, as well as fantastic coverage of Athens. Worth a look around during the day as well, but a clear sky is a bonus if you can.

During one of the brightest days of spring in Athens, with an excellent view of Acropolis and the Saronic Gulf, we had an excellent lunch starting with a variety of salads, interesting main dishes with a glass of Chardonnay from Santorini. We kept room for a sublime ice cream with yogourt and passion fruits, together with coffee and chocolates.

On arriving we were treating very well. The host took us to a seat with a view of the Acropolis and then various waiters brought us various menus and water etc... It's far from a cheap place and not very Greek but it was a fantastic meal! I had tuna tartar the lobster linguine. The wine list is very impressive... 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.
