There are rare experiences in life when you are certain that something unique, even sublime, has just happened to you. I am confident I just enjoyed such an event, a very memorable one. I had the fortune of coming to this restaurant for the second time in three days due to a business meeting in the Intercontinental Hotel. I had... More

Première means “first”…. Première is an extraordinary rooftop restaurant and we were extremely lucky while staying at the Athenaeum InterContinental to dine there. Situated at the 10th floor of the hotel, “high quality view” and “high cooking” (haute cuisine) along with rare wines are the key elements of its triumph. The chef “Jean Charles Metayer” and the staff were polite,... More

The first impression was excellent Parthenon view, low lighting, minimalistic and very polite and not annoying waiters. The food was so full of flavors that the word "tasty" is not enough!! I advice to order "menu de degustation". It will be a full voyage in haute cuisine. Will definitely visit again!

I had dinner at the Premiere Restaurant & Lounge Bar in Athens, Greece on 6/15/2013. It was my first time there. I was staying that night at the Athenaeum InterContinental Hotel and thought I would give it a try. I'm glad that I did. It's location at the top of the hotel gave me the most beautiful view of the... More

We went to this place for second time, but found it to be pretty average. They seated us and took our drink orders, then after we had started our drinks they took our food order - only at this time informing us that they were completely out of some dishes...... It was early in the evening and they were not... More

We had two nights in Athens and were staying at the Intercontinental. We had dinner in the Premiere Restaurant on the first night and enjoyed it so much, we booked the second night for the five course Degustation menu, and were not disappointed. The location on the 10th floor, the view of the Acropolis from the terrace where we ate,... More

We stayed at this hotel in order not to travel for 13 hours on a plane. We seen that they had this restaurant and decided to get reservations. We have a lovely meal and a great view of the Acropolis. The price reasonable. We would stay there and eat at this restaurant again.

In terms of a non seafront location this is superb. Sitting atop of the hotel you get a great view of the Acropolis, which looks fantastic especially when lit up in the evening. Service was great with staff very attentive without being over the top. Menu was at the more expensive end of the scale but you are paying for... More

Every dish was amazing. And also the small extra surprise from the chef. The service also outstanding. Good advise and stories about the wines. And not to forget, the beautiful view to the city and Acropolis.

If you stay in Intercontinental in Athens, it's worth visiting Premiere Lounge Bar, as long as the view from up there is really stunning. Acropolis and Lycabetus are clearly seen, drinks are well made and music is comforting and relaxing.
