“Seafood at it's best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

I was told by greek friends that Milos is one of the best seafood-restaurants in Athens but I didn't believe until I tried it. We've ordered for all of us the tasting seafood menue which was simply stunning. The service was impeccable, staying outside in the terrace we enjoyed the menue and, although of course you can eat for much less in Athens, nowhere in several different seafood restaurants in also different mediterranean countries I've got a comparable quality.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

We traveled through Greece for 3 weeks and by far this was the best meal we had. The tomatoes in their salad were out of this world even more flavor then any of the islands. Overall just amazing food and service.

“Best fish choice in Central Athens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

This is a restaurant we love to visit again and again and again. It has exceptional fresh fish and excellent sea food...But the magic is in the total experience. The friendly but highly professional staff, the virgin olive oil on freshly baked bread, the imaginative salads, starters that always create huge dilemmas, a full wine list, a great fish and sea food display. And more. Fish is cooked to perfection, served respectfully. Deserts are Greek, traditional, generous. A great, great, great choice. Money well spent.

“My favourite restaurant of the year!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Who would have thought that the restaurant in the Athens Hilton would be SO amazing? Our taxi driver recommended it first and then we checked other Tripadvisor reviews. The outside terrace is charming and spacious. It's also quite cool. The staff were incredibly helpful and eager to please. This is a fish restaurant and we ate the best red clams, octopus and crab risotto we ever tasted. We also ate delicious the aubergine, zucchini, tzatziki Milos special. Highly recommended! This is a restaurant that others should judge themselves by. The whole esperience was wonderful and surprisingly good value for a family of 4!

“What a fantastic first supper”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

It is with some irony that I review Milos. It is located in the basement/bottom floor of the Hilton. It's competition, Galaxy, is located on the roof with magnificent views of the acropolis. Galaxy, which we had the second night in town was unmitigatedly awful yet three times the price of Milos. Milos has a large outdoor patio with no views...a vine wall separates you from the pool area.

Milos impresses from. H moment you walk through the doors. A hostess greets you and passes you off to a server who whisks to over to the fresh seafood bar. There he will show you the days catch, which is varied and very fresh. The fish are not netted, but either line caught or spear fished. This is a wonderfully sustainable approach to harvesting.

Every question about each fish is patiently even enthusiastically answered. Most of the product, with very few exceptions is fresh not frozen. Galaxy has a menu that is primarily from frozen product...which does not matter too much given their laughably small portions.

After your visit to the fish table, you are seated. The tables are beautifully set and the servers are passionate. Their timing and attention is exquisite. They are the diametric opposite of the idiots up top at Galaxy....as an aside, we came back to Milos the second night after the debacle at Galaxy...we were that hungry, especially me as I refused to eat the dish presented upstairs.

I cannot recommend this higher. Just go.
