Whilst on a breakaway visit, my friends decided to book Premiere for dinner on a Friday night given that they were staying at the same hotel, Intercontinental. The venue itself is very well presented with great views of the Acropolis and the surrounding areas. The decoration and table arrangement also very well thought out. The dress code is smart casual...

The food was great and we did take degustation menu to try many dishes accompanied by different wines. The staff was very friendly. Minus that the chief waiter informed us that one of the dishes we order was unavailable long after ordering it. Minus that they charged us 6.50€ for the bottle of water. Minus that the environment was not... More

We went to celebrate our anniversary. The staff were very professional and polite. They explained all the options and they suggested what we should try. The courses were all small pieces of art. We are not experts but the tastes were so different but again so nice!! We went for 2 different menu in order to try as many as... More

This restaurant is 'recommended' by the Michelin guide, and for good reason. The food and the setting are superb and the prices logical. I can confidently say, and without hesitation, that this where I had my best steak ever (prior to that Le Jardin in Geneva held that distinction). I was surprised at first as to why Premiere missed out... More

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 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
