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.

“Unique experience not to be missed !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

Right in the centre of Athens and in spite of any turmoil that might be taking place in neighbouring Syntagma Square, one can enjoy one of the best eating experiences in the world. One of the main reasons being the unique view to the Acropolis and the Saronic bay all the way to the island of Aegina and the distant volcano of Methana and not least, the very down to earth cuisine provided by the new chef Asterios . Very professional and friendly service. The prices match the view and the quality.

“Stunning views of the Acropolis!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

Go at night or go for breakfast...any time of day is a lovely experience for a drink or a meal. Needless to say, it's expensive.

“Splendid view of the Acropolis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

Would recommend heading up there for dinner and some drinks and to enjoy the unblocked view. We tried a pasta dish that evening and it was pretty delightful. Cocktails are a tad pricey but expected.

“Acropolis sunset, spectacular ceviche”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

The big draw of this Syntagma Square hotel restaurant is the exceptional panoramic view over the city - watching the sunset light, then the night illumination, on the Acropolis from this roof garden is a great way to end a day in Athens. The restaurant is also fine in its own right - the sea bass ceviche with thyme honey and mastic oil was a masterful combination of flavors, and other dishes like roasted scallops and lamb noisettes were also excellent, if not quite as innovative. Wine list has some reasonable options (along with insanities for the 0.1% like a 9950-euro Burgundy.) Service was relaxed, no pressure to turn over the table. Pricey but a nice splurge.

“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.
