Top food and service. The big problem from my point of view is that a michelin stared restaurant should have a minimum dress code. You can’t leave people inside wearing flip flops.....

Wow!!! Star level dining! Excellent 8 course dinner for € 50,- (no kidding!). In Germany you‘d pay 3 times for this quality! Go there and enjoy!

Thoroughly enjoyed our 8 course tasting menu with wine pairing and view of the Acropolis. Added Greek sparkling wine before dinner and sweet wine with the desserts. Every course was an explosion of flavours and the waiters were attentive and informative. We enjoyed comparing favourite...courses. If you’re looking for really strange/unusual combinations then maybe this isn’t for you, but if you want reasonably priced fine dining with lovely staff and great views then I would recommend.More

We had the 14 course menu with cocktail pairing. Some of the starters like the tomato and the cuccumber were nothing to write home about. The mains, especially the fish and the lamb, were excellent! Now, the restaurant is at the top floor and it's...open roof but allowing smoking ruins the atmosphere for non-smokers (the majority of patrons). Having tables next to you puff their smoke whilst you try to enjoy your meal is not something you expect from a Michelin star establishment.More

Decent service, good food, good view. But nothing incredible, and wine really average. If you go there make sure you ate something before or plan on eating something after. I paired my menu with 3 glasses of wine, and because the service is extremely quick...I basically had 5 minutes between each glass of very average greek white wine before they brought a new glass (nothing against greek wine, but the one they serve is really average). When ordered coffee we got coffee but not the slightest sweet thing to go with - never saw that in that kind of restaurant. Overall quite disappointed, and I am not comparing this restaurant with 20 usd all you can eat buffet but with same level restaurantsMore

There are some mixed reviews here it’s true. Overall I opted for 5/5. As the experience, food, service and view are worth it. I tried the 14 course tasting menu with wine pairings. All 14 courses were exquisite, creatively presented and I wasn’t hungry afterwards....That could have been helped by 5 glasses of wine. The servers each explained every course in detail. We’re very attentive. I had an edge table with a great view. My one improvement note would be on the welcome. Which was a little brusk. Also, when seating guests, tell them the menu is via QR code. I was left waiting for a while before my server then explained. A minor point, but I noticed it happened 2/3 times. Yes expensive. Yes small ish portions. But the taste was excellent.More

Great location on top of the Onassis Foundation. You have the chance of seeing Athens 360. The 4 of us tried the 8-course menu degustation with wine/cocktails pairing. Wines and cockltails were excellent. The main dishes from the menu (chicken and lamp), as well as...the very unique desserts were FANTASTIC. Would prefer a bit larger portions though, as the food was not enough despite the 8 dishes. (note: we are all normal weight people)More

Went for dinner, 2 couples. Reserved beforehand a table, its hard to walk in and find a place. Luckily we got the corner table with a great view of the Acropolis. The staff explained the options and we went for the 14 course degustation without...the wine. We selected separately our preferred wine label. For each dish we got the full description of the ingredients with a certain spice to amplify the experience. The timing (between dishes) was good, feeling no pressure to finish one to move to the next one. The chef followed our pace and that made the experience very relaxing. The initial dishes are small (a bite or two) but full of taste and distinct flavor. As you get to the mains they get bigger and combined with the desserts it is more than enough to feel satisfied. Obviously it is fine dinning so you can count between 100 to 125 E per person including wine. Its worth the spending for the experience you get.More
