Great view, good service. Drinks mixed correctly! One of four places in all of Athens where I have had a Dirty Martini done the way I expected it!

This restaurant is on the roof of the Hilton in Athens is something else. You can dine inside or out, but mostly in the summer months it is either on the balcony or just under cover. Superb food with extensive sushi options or hot stone food as well as the conventional fare. The blueberry soup dessert is to die for, with strawberries and cream and meringue......The view towards the lit-up Acropolis adds even more to the pleasure. I've eaten here a few times before and have never been disappointed.Not to be missed!

The view to Athens is stunning! Cocktails are great although a bit overpriced. Food is very suitable to the contemporary looks of the place. Sushi is fantastic!

“Best sunsets in Athens”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

I been there 5 times , and I am sure I ll be back. It is the best spot to sit, enjoy a warm evening and watch magnificent color transformations from light pink to dark lilac while sun getting down. A trendy crowd, a wide wine list and great cocktails... Can't say anything really bad about food , but it is this place weak part... nothing remarkable unfortunately.. Probably the reason of it is too broad menu... You cant be good at everything.. Asian part still be undiscovered for me, cause every time I been ordering something from greek or italian options.. Maybe sushi is what they are strong at but last time it was ... Beef Carpaccio - was dry and artistic dab of sauce on the plate was definitely not enough to mosture it, risotto with mushrooms was not bad, with right consistence and perfect amount of parmesan, but still not the best risotto I ever eaten. Fun part of the dinner was cooking on hot stones brought to the table.. It was actually more process than eating , although amount of sea food and fish was generous enough, but again, if sea food and fish were previously marinated , the taste of them would be much better than just plain taste of freshly grilled on hot stone pieces even after dipping them in provided lemon dressing. Great company, tasty blueberry soup desserts and perfect service sweetened the bitterness of disappointment from the food. And I still think that this is must visit place if you are in Athens .. I have soft spot for it would gladly give it 5 stars if food was the same breathtaking as views..
