Whether day or night, this is well worth a visit to enjoy a glass of wine, food and the view. Why not sit for a couple of hours and enjoy the sun setting behind the Acropolis.

Standing at the Roof Garden of the Grande Bretagne, we looked with awe at this historically significant site that was finally right there in front of us but which the Athenians take for granted because they see it every day. At night the ancient citadel of Acropolis looks majestic all lit up in the clear night sky and it was... More

We had a selection of different dishes for the appetizer which was great seeing that it allowed you to try a range of different things- however it was nothing spectacular I am afraid. For the main I had lobster with greek rice noodles (kritharaki?) which was really good. All in all very recommendable due to the spectacular view- very suitable... More

A typical but excellent business dinner choice in an excellent location overlooking Acropolis and the Greek parliament. Typical high standard hotel hospitality. A wide range of selections of food and wine to pick from. Prices are high as it is expected in such a restau. My only suggestion is that they should include in their menu many more Greek style...

Oh, the view, the food and the service, definitely 5 stars. The price is also high, but it is worth every penny! Love dining there overlooking the Acropolis. Highly recommend!

Our flight came in very late, and we needed adrink and some latenight snack. At the 8th floor of the Grande Bretagna Hotel, at the center of the city in the Parlament (Syntagma) Square, we found this lovely Restaurant&Bar. The view is amasing, with the Acropolis lit up in fromt of you, the food was fine and fresh, even after... More

Stayed at the Grand Bretagne Hotel in downtown Athens and used the GB Roof Garden restaurant for numerous breakfasts and dinners. Restaurant is outside with a roof over it, and a beautiful view of downtown Athens and the Acropolis. Impossible to describe how stunning this view and location really is. Service, food, menu, all wonderful. If you are fortunate enough... More

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
