We had a really nice meal at The Hill in Athens. The view was fantastic - with the buildings on the Acropolis all lit up, I am not sure what more you can ask for. The food was very nice, with my co-traveller being a...particular fan of the desert, though not as special as other meals we had. However, on the night we went the service was only okay, where I had to ask to order drinks and food multiple times. Everyone was very nice, just a bit slow. Overall a cool place to eat, especially for the view.More

Hands down one of the best restaurants in Athens. Food was delicious from start to finish and our server explained the dishes in detail and made excellent suggestions. Perfectly paced between courses and the rooftop view provided a beautiful sunset in one direction while the...lights came up on the Acropolis in the opposite direction. You couldn't ask for a more perfect evening!More

We finished our stay in Athens with extremely delicious food and drinks at this amazing restaurant, accompanied by the view of the ancient Agora and the Akropolis. Stathis, our waiter, made sure that our needs were met with love throughout the whole evening. Definitely recommend...this place if you want to experience the beautiful Greek culture in a relaxed way.More

Simply the best. This is a truly great restaurant - why; it has a range of strong qualities which separate it from most others. Let me be more specific, about our visits here over the past week. We’ve eaten here a few times and also...used it during the day too, both elements of the restaurant were of high quality. The roof top area is simply beautiful, with a sheltered environment which contains a direct, hi impact view of the Acropolis with its Parthenon. At night it’s stunning. You can also see easily the major classical areas within Athens City , such as both the ancient and Roman agora’s, Hadrians library and many more. The area outside, during the day, also has a really good view of the same and also provides comfortable chairs and sofas. Another area of quality that will bring you back for more is there staff, who provide a professional service time after time. My final point is that this business seems very very well run and appears to be on a healthy state. They have the above areas which draw in good numbers, as well as offering wine tastings and Greek Cooking classes on two separate floors, below the roof top area. All in all this is a ‘must visit’ restaurant when in Athens. I’m simply a tourist who enjoys knowing about good restaurants and is why I take time to occasionally write a review - now all the time. This is the best review ( and probably longest) I’ve ever written and deservedly so. It really is worth a visit.More

Kinda ok. Drinks were ok, prices not too high but would have liked way bigger portions for what we paid for. Staff standing outside asking in every time going past, really annoying experience

Charming! Lovely! Easy to book, not crowded at 9 pm on a Saturday night at the height of tourist season. Friendly service, reasonable prices and an excellent wine recommendation. Didn’t feel rushed or touristy and it was a perfect little 10 minute stroll back to...a main subway stop afterwards. I know there are a lot of rooftop restaurants to choose from in Athens but I would book this one again without hesitation.More

The food was horrible. The chicken was raw. They also bring you water you didn’t ask for, and charge it. When we told the employees of the restaurant about the raw chicken, they were not polite with us. I don’t recommend this restaurant.More

This restaurant is incredible. The best food we’ve ever had. The dishes are thoughtfully created with wonderful flavours. The views of the Acropolis are breathtaking. The service was top notch, Elias was spectacular. A must when visiting Athens.

The food was nice but the menu offered few dishes. It’s the perfect place for taking a picture and sharing it on social networks but the quality of the location and the service were insufficient. We didn’t enjoy the evening because they didn’t pay attention...to the alimentary intolerance and because we are still waiting the coffees 😅More

Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient

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
