The food was really nice! I ordered the sea bass but because i wasn't sure whether i wanted it grilled of boiled, they cut the fish and half and cooked it both ways for me! and i have to say, i loved both of them. They offered us a complimentary soup in the beginning, two sample deserts and a small lemon sorbet at the end. It wasn't an expensive restaurant (35euros for 2 persons) and all the complimentary food was a plus and the waiters were really polite. I enjoyed eating there and I would go back. Combine it with a trip to Hilton Galaxy Rooftop Bar for a drink afterwards and you will have a perfect evening!

We went there right after watching the sunset at Likavitos, a little stroll for the teleferic terminal. In a Saturday evening, the place was half filled by Athenians therefore promising. Indeed the food tasted very good, portions are big so we shared the salad. Service is very good, always attentive and helpful.

While in Athens, we stayed at the Hilton, which is a short walk from Oroscopo. We ate dinner there both nights, having octopus, calamari and the roasted lamb. Everything was delicious, their fresh baked bread was divine. Service was attentive and unobtrusive. Although very full, dessert, fresh fruit and a cream pastry arrived, complimentary. Their barrel wine was delicious and also a complimentary after dinner liquor was very tasty. Thank you so much to the staff for such a warm welcome to our Athens stay.

Had a lovely lunch here, seated on the pavement next to a small park in a lovely part of town. Food was very good (had special menu no. 4), and service was friendly although an extra waiter would ensure it's a tad more attentive.

During our lunch a series of body guards were in attendance and became very active as the party at a table were ushered to their cars under close watch after they had eaten.
