“The view and food is good, but a little on the expensive side.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Right across from Hadrian's Gate, the Athens Gate Restaurant is easy to find. The view is beautiful, but when we arrived to watch the sunset, it was so hot in the restaurant that they had to open the doors. Unfortunately, our table was by the door and the wind was terrible. Finally, the door was shut and we all baked until the sun set. We ordered from the fixed price menu that we had read about (the waiter did not mention it) and thought we were getting a bargain. Later, after eating in several other restaurants in Athens, we realized it was sort of expensive. But, the food was very good and the service was okay.

“Not worth the money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

While the view is great, the food is nothing special, not worth the money. You can enjoy the view during breakfast or for drinks but don't go there for dinner. There are many very good restaurants in the Plaka area, just 5 minutes walking from the hotel.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

Not too great but good food selections on the menu. Free wi-fi... and most interest is it's overlooking Acropolis. Staff were great!

“Very good food and a fabulous view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

This retaurant offers a 360 degree panoramic view of the city with the best view of the Acropolis. Have a quiet meal out on the balconey watching the sun go down and the lights go up on the Parthanon. Service can be a little slow but really, you should want to linger and admire the view. They also have great coffee.
