Amazing view and good food

This place offers an awesome view of the city. However the open seating area can sometimes be extremely windy ! So its better to book the indoor area which offers a view. Just a few flight of stairs upwards from the restaurant is a chapel. The view from there is also great !

Very disappointed in the quality of the food and wine when the prices are considered. We sent back our mussels starter as it was stone cold. The waiter apologised and confirmed they were normally hot. He returned with hot but shrivelled rubbery mussels - clearly the same ones microwaved!

I have been to Athens many times, but I never knew about this amazing, breathtaking location! It is a must-see type of place with great value at the restaurant! Typically these million dollar view type of establishments gouge you with their prices. I was astounded at how relatively cheap the prices were at the main restaurant at Lycabettus. There were...

The food is ok, the service is polite but the real reason to visit this restaurant is the magnificent view of Athens. Located on top of Lycabetus, you can see all Athenian landmarks. Make sure to ask for a table in the main area, overlooking the Acropolis. If you get a table on the other side, you still have a... More

We visited a cold and rainy day in January. No crowds. Plain food (we were just there for a simple lunch), but quite OK. Service and price were just OK as well. The location is great, and some other day the view would have been stunning!

This is more about an experience than a meal. Your journey starts on a funicular railway and on a arrival at the summit you soak in the best view in Athens which captures all the amazing Athena landmarks. Every part of the multi layered restaurant has an incredible. Incidentally the meal was not great and the service was average.

We booked a table for 8 from Australia before arriving having heard this was THE restaurant in Athens. It promised plenty with a cable car ride to the top and a simply stunning view over Athens. We drank bubbles on the deck and watched the sun go down. Unfortunately the food was very average. Portions were large but the quality... More

We had only refreshments there . The cafe frappe was very good in comparison to other places . From there you can see the view of Athens from every angle and the the best view of the Acropolis. We took a taxi to get there and then the funicular but on the way back we walked down to the center... More

Very expensive to get to the restaurant and View - by cable car and 7 euros per person each way. Taxi cabs have scam service for tourists to/from and charge you 14 euros to take you home late at night for a 2-4 euro trip. The food at the restaurant was good and service was good -- just a bit...

Most unpleasant experience. On sitting we got a cold potato soup "on the house". Bland, not interesting and cold in a cold weather. We ordered smoked cheese rolls and brimm saviche. What we got is a salty pizza roll and something similar to herring in vinegar. For mains we ordered an avocado, carrot and cone salad and a seafood risotto.... More

Staying in Kolonaki / Lykavittos

Neighborhood Profile
Kolonaki / Lykavittos
By far the ritziest neighborhood in town, Kolonaki is home to most of the chic boutiques and designer label stores. Here, the wealthy say no to austerity by dressing in their finest and spending hours in the trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most expensive coffee in Europe. The area also contains a couple of notable museums and cultural institutions, which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper reaches of Kolonaki transition into Lykavittos Hill, the highest point in central Athens. Climb the paths through its wooded slopes to the tiny chapel at the top, from where you are rewarded with stunning views across the Acropolis to the sea and even the mountains of the Peloponnese on a clear day. The wooden amphitheater up here hosts regular concerts during the summer.
