Second time visiting this restaurant food is ok and pleasant nothing absolutely wow. Weather was amazing so we booked an outside table . And all I can say are the views always stun me. We went around 7.30 just on time to see the sunset...over Athens . Cable car ride is also a little pre dinner treat. Every time I visit Athens I surely will have a meal up there just for the views. Definitely recommend.More

This restaurant can be visited either by car up to a point and then continue by foot for about 10 minutes or by the lift where it drops you right in the restaurant. The view from the restaurant is unbeatable. The best time to go...is just before sunset in order to enjoy the incredible view of all Athens and the sea further away while sipping a glass of wine from the restaurants’s extensive wine collection. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions bigger than I expected. We started with grilled talagani (type of cheese ) with carrot sauce and stuffed eggplants. Then we ordered the veal medallions and the pork chops and ended with the chocolate mousse soufflé. Every single dish was super delicious and beautifully presented. Congratulations to the chef and the team for their efforts. The stuff was very attentive and provided a first class service. This is a place where I would gladly return again and again!More

This restaurant situated at the top of Lycabettus Hill in Athens offers superb views with delicious food. The set menu which you have to ask for offers excellent value. I loved it so much that I returned twice during my recent stay in Athens. Each...dish was beautifully presented and the portions were surprisingly generous. Sitting outside and seeing the marvel that is the Acropolis is an absolute treat. The staff were very attentive and service was excellent. Congratulations to the chef, Xenia, she and her team did a fantastic job.More

For the reputation it has Orizontes leaves much to be desired. We were very disappointed especially since we had had an amazing meal at the GB roof top restaurant the previous evening And were expecting it to be matched. The grilled chicken was tasteless and...the pork tough. Thankfully there’s very little that can go wrong with the Greek Salad. The merge waiting staff was clearly stretched when the restaurant was almost full. It does have the most amazing views of the Acropolis but you can get the same from the level above or the bar.More

Paid nearly 100,- euro’s for 2 dishes I didn’t finish. Bland, Uninspired, And the waiters will give you the feeling they think they’re better than most people. Which they are not, because the service at most restaurants in Plaka, hell in all of Athens is...better. The only positive thing was the view, if you still want to visit I would go there for a drink but DON’T order lamb. You’ve been warned lolMore

You have to take a funicular to get to the restaurant on top of Mt Lycabettus. The view is impressive and the service is good. The food is decent but not exceptional. It is worth going at least once for the view.

We made a booking for New Year’s Eve 2019. They insisted that I wire transfer a deposit to hold my reservation. There was a prefix menu for 105 Euro per head. The food was awful- the salad being the best. The chicken soup was a...thin broth with pieces of limp chicken skin. All the purées tastes like bad Baby food. Worst of all the main course was Venison and was overcooked and dry. The quiche was also charred. The views were amazing and service good but the maitre d was rude. Lastly, even after clarifying, they ignored my deposit when I was billed and I had to make them reverse the charge. So- my advice is go to Mt. Lycabettus for the view but do not go the Orizontes restaurant. This was the worst New Years Eve experience we have ever had.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.
