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.

“great food and great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

We reserved a table overlooking the Parthenon, and at night, the view is amazing. The food was great as was the service. We also had a buffet breakfast there and it was excellent as well.

“View is great, food is lackluster”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

The view is amazing. Since you are sitting above the rooftops you just see the acropolis floating over the other buildings.

The food was not as good. For the price, I would have expected better quality. But if you think about it as if you are partly paying for the view, it's easier to stomach.

“Just lovely!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

The service and view were great. The food was good, but overpriced. We also were charged for a bottle of wine when we had only ordered 2 glasses of wine. They fixed it, but we found another error as well, so be sure to double check your tab!

Mainly wanted dinner in the hotel. Views of Parthenon thru sunset were spectacular. Food was totally excellent, what a surprise! Sea bass and grilled lamb.

“Rooftop restaurant @ Grande Bretagne, Athens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

Relaxed atmosphere, superb breakfast buffet, great dinner and the best view in town. There are covered and open areas, all open air. Two bars. Go there even if not staying at the GB.
