“Excellent food, excellent view!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

If you want to go you have to book! A little bit difficult to find parking. The food is delicious! The view is one of the best in Athens!

“Don't miss out a fabulous meal with amazing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

This restaurant is above street level but its entrance is very easy to miss. On arriving we were led up to our rooftop table. When ordering our waiter discussed our choices with us and even encouraged my " Meat and 2 veg " hubby to try a traditional Greek dish cue a Goat main course cooked in a paper bag. But was given 10/10 by Hubby so must have been good. I had the lamb chops and was served 5!! It was delicious. Waiters were very attentive without being overbearing.This restaurant must be booked and ask for rooftop as the views of the Acropolis are amazing. We had an early meal 7pm but as we left @ 9 the restaurant was packed.We will be back soon

“Some dishes great, others so-so = average.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

The octopus, salad and haloumi cheese were okay. The warm dolmas were good. I had the goat wrapped in paper and baked-excellent. The stifado had mushy/too large onions, the lamb and potatoes were so-so and the beef in the pots with vegetables were good. Overall a bit disappointing but I am from Greece so perhaps I expect better authentic cuisine.......

“Excellent Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

We ate at the restaurant after an evening of exploring the Acropolis and watching the sunset. We were unaware of the great gem we happened upon while walking back to our hotel. This is an excellent restaurant that you should seek out, but make reservations if you want to be sure to get a table. We did not have reservations, but fortunately for us they were able to squeeze us in between reservations. The food is absolutely delicious! It was the best Greek food I had while visiting Greece. The service is excellent as well. A must try dish is the baklava! It was some of the best I have ever had! I would certainly tell anyone I knew to have dinner at this restaurant while in Athens!
