“Amazing bar with beautiful view, unmissable!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

I went for drinks at the Galaxy Bar at the Hilton. The bar is at the rooftop of the hotel and just beautiful. They serve the most amazing cocktails and the big plus is the view of the Acropolis. Service is great and attentive as well, I think this bar is a must if you are visiting Athens! I didn't try the restaurant but it was quite busy, so I suppose it should be nice too!

“One of the best views in Athens”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

This bar has been a "landmark" of Athenian nights...forever, and after the full refurbishment a few years ago has remained a popular spot. I believe this is due to its excellent location, and views, but also to the mixed crowds it attracts. However, i do not believe that anyone visits it for its (extremely) slow service or its prices (e.g. €12 for a glass of simple white wine...?).

“very quick”
Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

just paid a quick visit to the galaxy. the view was splendid, that much is true. we went to the terrace to have an even better view and to escape the loud music. it was even louder outside. you just couldn't speak. took a look at the prices, though. and well, even at the hilton too much is too much. why take a drink here? i cannot think of any reason.

“Amazing Views, Expensive Evening”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

The Galaxy Bar will afford you some of the best views of the city and Acropolis, but be prepared to trade a mortgage payment for a couple of drinks!

“Great view and good food - try it”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Fantastic for an evening meal watching the sun go down with a great view over the city.
Contrary to those that feel the place not worth a visit, I had a great meal including self cooked fish on a hot stone washed down with a quaffable local Sauvignon Blanc. Yes it is expensive, but what do you expect on the top a Hilton in a capital city. Oh and don't forget to round it all off with a glass of Metaxa Brandy twelve star which is so smooth you might just want a second.
