Description: GB Roof Garden Restaurant & Bar The view from the GB Roof Garden Restaurant & Bar is breathtaking. In the most ideal location, the uninterrupted views of the Acropolis, Lycabettus hill and the Parliament are truly magnificent. The Restaurant - awarded by the Wine Spectator magazine three years in a row - serves New Mediterranean cuisine with emphasis on quality raw materials and excellent technique. For breakfast or lunch, the elegant and warm environment of the GB Roof Garden restaurant creates a tranquil atmosphere, while dinner is perfect when the city lights come on and the cosmopolitan aura becomes apparent.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

We had dinner on our first night in Athens at the GB Roof Garden and loved it. Service was impeccable, views breathtaking and the meal was one of the best I have had ever.
We also enjoyed breakfast here and there was a large choice - fantastic

“A great scenery for the eyes and the tastes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

With an amazing view in Acropolis, the open air roof terrace offers an inspiring and relaxing atmosphere. I have enjoyed for the first time great Greek wines thanks to very good recommendation from the sommelier. The food menu is relatively short but food is fresh and very tasty. Fish of the day or beef tenderloin were great. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

“A View with a Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

The food is as fabulous as the view! Whether for breakfast or in the evening, you get a view of the Acropolis that's hard to beat. It's an open-air restaurant on top of the hotel. Their breakfast is well worth including in the price of your room.

“Seven senses satisfaction!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

The roof garden of Hotel Grande Bretagne, is the best place to see Athens. Acropolis, Lycabettus, Syntagma square, National garden, Temple of Dionissos, Vas. Sofias avenue etc are all served in your plate along with food equally extraordinary. Service is as expected, match the great hotel, and wine list is superb. The experience of lunch or dinner in GB follows you.
For me better go for lunch for better view, and drink at night,

“Didnt live up to expectations”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

We had dinner here while staying at the hotel for just 1night before our cruise and was so looking forward to it. The view without doubt was lovely. Service was very good. My starter of Scallops with a very unpleasant foam was not so good. Mains I had the Seabass, it was a nice peice of fish but the dish itself was underwhelming. The Californian Chardonnay was excellent but pricey at 95 Euros. All up I found the restaurant very expensive and food was just average. Total bill was 265 Euros. Maybe just go for a drink and enjoy the views. We also had breakfast here next morning and really cant complain. Fresh orange juice and all the usual things to eat for breakfast. The view again lovely. Glad the breakfast was included in the room rate.
