We were staying here and had asked reception to book us a table. When we checked later they hadnt made the booking, However the restaurant Manager said he would organise a table for us and true to his word he did. We had a fabulous table directly looking at the Acropolis all lit up. It was amazing and you could... More

Most enjoyable evening for the special occasion of our anniversary. Five course meal accompanied by the appropriate glass of wine for each course. A breathe taking view of the Parthenon and Athens, courteous and friendly staff what more could one ask. Very Happy would go again.

The description of this restaurant here on TA and elsewhere is correct: the roof setting with Acropolis as the backdrop is more than a lovely view. The high marks for the food (certificate of excellence, Michelin guide mention etc) is also correct. Here they do cook excellently! Food quality and standard of cooking is on a high level - some...

Had Christmas Eve dinner here and the food was good. The Amuse Bouche was tasty octopus, and the mushroom soup with truffle was quite nice. The King Prawn was served with Quinoa. The mesclun with shaved cheese and some type of prosciutto was well done . The filet of pork accompanied by potato and egg plant purée was also very... More

Excellent staff service especially if they know you are having trouble ordering local dishes. Because of their English proficiency and culinary knowledgeable, they could provide the detailed description and ingredients of each dish to match your preference. We are Thai people who are accustomed to spicy food so we managed to ask the chef to add some spices to some... More

Rooftop garden restaurant with excellent views. We went in the evening and the floodlit acropolis above us was a majestic backdrop to an epic meal. Service and food were superb, the waiter was knowledgeable about wine and recommended an excellent greek white. 3 course with wine came to approximately €150 so its on the expensive side but well worth it....

Ate there twice because the first time was so good. All three meals were just excellent on both occasions. Elegantly presented with great flavour and textures.

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
