Ambience very good. Service pleasant . We forgave the food being spilled during the serving but for the price the food was way, way below expectations. As others have stated - lamb was uninteresting and undercooked. Had to be sent back. They then sent back the same lamb trimmed!! The lamb was described as with Feta and olives - which... More

Absolutely the best things about this restaurant are the ambience and the stunning views of the Acropolis, especially when illuminated at night. I had dinner with my 19 year old son and we both loved it. The food is good, we both had Tuna Tartare to start, very nice but expensive at 25 euros. A two course dinner will be... More

The best view of Acropolis at night, good coctails, not very cheap but the place is really worth it. Nice experience. Would choose it for late afternoon- early night out

My daughter and I celebrated her birthday here, and it was perfect -- food, view, service, conversation with staff and other guests. One of the few places we were able to choose excellent wines to go with the excellent food. As the sun went down, we had a great view of the Acropolis, which certainly added to the ambience!

First, the view is the best in Athens. Combine that with the excellent staff and food and you have a home run. This was our first meal in Athens and definitely one of the most memorable.

A lot of Athenian hotels will offer roof-top views of the Acropolis but Grande Bretagne’s roof garden is one of the best so you’d best try it once you’re there. We managed to secure an excellent table right next to the leafy ledge, as the great hostess was kind enough to ask whether we’d enjoy it as opposed to a... More

Wonderful food, gorgeous setting, doting service. Worth the money if you're looking for an upscale dinner experience in Athens. Sit close to the balcony and watch the views change from daylight to night throughout your dinner. Good wine list too, especially compared with the other places we ate in Athens.

It is a must to visit for a night dinner with a view of Acropolis drenched in yellow light. Food collection is great. Pizzas are highly recommended along with great selections of wines. Try santorini wines! Hospitality of highest standard and you can freely ask staff to click for you with a great backdrop of acropolis!!
