Just think of it! The sun goes down on the Aegean Sea and the goddess Athena Nike reclines in her temple on the Acropolis as she has done since 420 BC. Her temple begins to glow golden aside the Propylaea entrance to the Acropolis as does the Parthenon. One can almost hear the gods sigh with relief that another day... More

Just under the Acropolis, The food is very good, with very high service. Pricy but expected, the people there are very posh. We had nice dinner and the live Piano made it perfect,

What a great location, what a view of the Acropolis. Ample parking space. One of the few restaurants in Athens who honour the no-smoking rule. Excellent menu. Loved the fish soup. Also had a wonderful sea bream steak. The salads on the menu are worth a special read. Some say it is all overpriced. I say : How much is... More

What an impressive menu, unusually both the "international" and the local dishes were equally good (we tried both!). The service was excellent, we did not feel rushed and requested changes to the listed dishes created no problems. We had an excellent table and we felt the whole evening went exceptionally well.

I have read the other notes and agree, however you have to listen to my story. Firstly food in Greece is cheap. My experience was we got to the restaurant just before the sun was down, OK the hostess was not overly friendly but was still nice, we walked up the stairs to the second level and to our left...

What a wonderful view! We had dinner here our last evening in Athens and it was the perfect send-off for our vacation! A beautiful clear night sky with a huge moon rising behind the Acropolis! We were seated promptly and the food was delicious. Wonderful atmosphere

We wanted to eat somewhere that had a nice view of the Acropolis at night. Our hotel recommend this restaurant. I read the reviews beforehand and saw some mixed reviews and mentions of the high prices, so I was a little apprehensive. We were seated outside on one of decks and had a beautiful view of the Acropolis. First and... More

Recommended to us by a Greek based business women this proved to be an excellent place for a late breakfast after claiming up the Acropolis. There is a peaceful boutique feel to dining here with a view up to Pantheon as you eat despite it being perilously close to the coach/car park and hop on hop off stop for the... More

A table with good view is guaranteed in this huge and lovely restaurant. We sat outdoor in mid Oct, weather was lovely, the full moon made the Acropolis view even more stunning. Food was delicious but overpriced. €17 for a starter but the portion was huge. Black orzo pasta with mixed fish for main course which was lovely. The service... More

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
