“Elegant taste and unbeatable view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

The food was very elegantly presented and very tasty. The view to Acropolis is unbeatable( the summer terrace has an even better view). The service is very professional while it stays friendly. It is the place that you really go for the taste and quality and not for the quantity.

“Good setting and good intentions... but not quite there”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We had dinner only once, but our perception was that of a lot of good will and experimentation, but without the required craftmanship for a successful cuisine. The best part of the meal was the amuse buche: original and creative. The rest of te dishes (we only had fish and a vegetarian appetizer) felt like preliminary ideas for good plates, but nothing was fully convincing. Add to this that the price was that of haute cuisine.... we were overall not impressed.

“one of the best restaurants in Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

When you want something out of the ordinary in Athens, then visit Hytra: a welcome break from run-of-the-mill Greek cuisine (though it can be very tasty at times). We had the cuttle fish starter and two of the fish main courses, the sea bass and the cod. They were both exceptionally good and inventive.
The service was courteous and the wine list quite extensive.
It was not a cheap meal but was worth it.
The view of the Acropolis also was an added bonus, although it is seen through a sort of screen, because elf the busy avenue where the building is.

“Athens Gourmet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Probably the best restaurant in Athens, in terms of quality of food, presentation, taste combination and integration, service, wine cellar, even a very knowledgeable sommelier. If I have to find something to mumble about it would be the prices which are steep, on the other hand you DO get what you pay for. If I am in Athens only for one evening this is the place for me.
