It is such a pity that this location with an amazing, breathtaking view of the Acropolis, has such a terrible value for money offering. The food is very expensive, the wines are priced extremely high and the quality is well below average. The service is also poor. I would avoid it, with the exception of sitting down for a coffee...

From the assorted Greek appetizers to the Greek salad and wonderful vegetable risotto...this restaurant was a must go with a beautiful view of the acropolis..we had a group of 50 go for a dinner and the sea bass as well as the lamb were Delish.

Went there for lunch after an early visit to the Acropolis. From the restaurant we could see not only the Acropolis but the queue up to the top of the Acropolis. The service was good, and the food was excellent. It has the look of a tourist trap, and general advice is not to go to a restaurant too close... More

The view as we sat eating lunch were so breathtaking we could have used our whole memory card on our phones just taking pictures. It's not very often that you can have lunch and look up and marvel at the parthenons beauty.

Very good food but small portions, good service however expensive but the view of Acropolis is magnificent and unique. Obviously you expect high prices in touristic areas.

Dionysos Zonar's is an all-time classic with its unique location, the place where heads of State & foreign dignitaries are traditionally taken for dinner. History aside (one can admire silverware & crystal on display on the ground-floor), the restaurant offers good Greek cuisine, an excellent wine list, impeccable service & the best pistachio baklava I have ever tasted. Make sure... More

This restaurant just across Acropolis has the best view in Athens. Food is average but you do not go there for the food. They are trying to provide different plates of Greece cuisine sometimes with good results but always the food is tourist oriented. I have taken many times business associates and they have left always satisfied at least by... More

The Acropolis view is for sure amazing. The restaurant is just across the entry, offers a free of charge parking. The food is good, but expensive. I would not go there with family or friends regularly, but I take there guests from abroad.

Dionysos Zonar's is a very well-known café and we always take friends there for a coffee or drinks, never for lunch or dinner. The reason is their incredibly, unbelievably overpriced menus (for the unimaginative dishes that they serve, the prices are astronomical). The service is also very poor for what you pay. However, the location is absolutely amazing and the... More

I believe that the two main things this place has going for it is the amazing view and easy parking (which is an important thing in down town Athens). The restaurant has been refurbished recently and is nice. The food decent and the staff quite helpful. The café downstairs (inside) is terrible however. Old and a little shabby. I went... More
