Very beautiful location with a great view but the food was very medium and cold. Also the portions were too small. The service was just fine. It was a bit expensive.

What a dissapointment. It would be a one star review without excellent service level. Food was very very dissapointing. Sad complimentary cold tomato soup showed the way to rest of the dinner. Presentation was poor, food was cold when arriving and taste world was unfortunately...lame. Few annoying instagram wannabes taking pictures with flashes blinding you and nobody telling them to stop. Views are fantastic and service level great! Unfortunately when food suck in restaurant its hard to gove good ratings.More

Absolutely a joke of a restaurant. Mediocre food at best for not mediocre prices. The manager needs to find a different career because hospitality isn’t is specialty. The only good thing about this clip joint is the view and the polite wait staff. If you...decide to go here skip dinner and have a drink, take on the view and leave. I be wish we hadn’t even done that. The poor reviews were 100% accurate and I should have acknowledge them. The taxi driver who drove us to the restaurant even warned us that it’s awful!More

Not easy to get there but worth the trip if for nothing but view! Beautiful restaurant and food was very good. Definitely need good weather to enjoy it though as indoor seating was fairly limited.

An amazing location with stunning view but the food was below average unfortunately... A restaurant worth to visit for the view but not for food.

We had reservation for four people. They mentioned that it is booked and we will have another place. After arriving totally unfriendly welcome waiter told us to sit on a side view. We asked about empty places on a main area. He told “PRIORITY” with...no explanations what is that and why it is empty (all evening tables were empty look to photo😂). After we got a table we were waiting menu for 20 minutes. However we got 2 bottles of water (like everywhere) 😁we ordered desserts and drinks. And … we get buns with sour olives😂buns were awful. Now the best thing: menu prices and receipt was different. Certainly receipt was higher😂buns prices 3 eur per piece😂😂😂😂(looks to picture) So think over about taking this place to eat. Nearby table left food. So it was not tasty! Good view can be without this “eating place”😁More

As stated across other reviews, the service is absolutely dire and I mean DIRE. I was sat waiting for 40 minutes before anyone spoke to me after my main course and then it was only to deliver my bill without asking for it. No service,...no apology, just rudeness. Absolutely shocking all round - the worst service I’ve received in Athens. Do not go.More

We took the funicular to the top of Lycabettus Hill and watched a gorgeous sunset. We then were seated along the wall of the terrace of Orizontes with the most unbelievable view of Athens. It was so incredible to watch the Acropolis and Olympic Stadium...light up and then to watch the moon rise over the opposite mountain. Our wine and food were spectacular. The lamb was exquisite. One of the best things about this restaurant was one of our servers Angelo. He was attentive, kind, so funny, and he made the experience truly 5 stars. This restaurant should be a mandatory stop in Athens.More

We booked a meal here for our final evening in Athens and this was the best meal we have had in Athens. The view was unbelievable. The food was amazing. The staff were a delight. We booked for 7pm, watched the sunset and didn't leave...until about 11pm as we did not want to go. We arrived via the mountain tram which was very easy and fast. The price was reasonable for the quality of the food and the service received.More

I feel compelled to write this due to recently poor reviews at this establishment. Our experience here was very pleasant and did not match any of the negative descriptions recently posted. Food was excellent, staff went out of their way to provide service above expectation....They even kept up quite well as the restaurant filled up. Getting here was very easy as well, a taxi directly to the Lycabettus Funicular is what we did. I think the only complaint would be how poorly marked the restaurant is, but the staff were more than happy to help direct you. They had 3 different distinct seating areas. It is a bit more expensive but not overpriced. You’re not just paying for the view like many other people have said.More

I don’t have a recommendation that close but the Hotel Divani Place has a fabulous rooftop bar/restaurant that looks out to the Acropolis and is approx £7 cab fare from where the restaurant is.

Sorry for this delayed reply. So in our case, we just walked in and did not reserve a table in advance. It was pretty crowded the evening we went there but (1) the restaurant is quite big and (2) it’s not that cheap that... More

There is no dress code. We saw people in shorts and flip flops. And then there was a group, everyone in a proper business attire. But considering the ambiance, I would suggest smart casuals.
