As you walk into the GB Roof Garden Restaurant and Bar your eyes go to the ample, elegant terrace, the gleaming white tablecloths and sparkling glasses and then as your eyes turn to the right the full imposing majesty of the Acropolis hits you with the bustling city below coyly hidden by a live green hedge. If you made a... More

We were staying at the hotel and ate in this restaurant several times because we simply loved it. It is casual elegance. The dishes we tried were always refined and flavorful and cooked to perfection. There is passion in the food. The wine steward always suggested the perfect pairing wine and since we were in Greece, we stayed with Greek... More

We were recommended to go to this rooftop restaurant by a Greek friend. Made reservations well in advance to get a nice table at the side of the restaurant to have a good view. Unfortunately you can not reserve a specific table. What helps is to be a bit early so you can choose a good table. We did this... More

A very attentive staff, excellent food, especially breakfast. They will remember you after the first time and go out of their way to seat you with your preferences. Even if you are not staying at the hotel, it is worth a visit for sunset drinks and appetizers or their amazing breakfasts.

Excellent cuisine, excellent service, excellent atmosphere, fantastic dinner place! Considering it's fine dining the prices are fairly good, especially when compared to dining in other European cities.

Gorgeously built restaurant with a distant but nice view of the Acropolis at night. A "who's who" social scene for people watching. But wow the prices were expensive and by the time the trip was over the food was just not all that memorable. Good but not excellent. Cigars are permitted outside so beware, for better or worse.

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.
