We are happy to write a review for this fine restaurant overlooking the city of Athens and the sea beyond. Maybe it is one of the very few cases, that a great view is matched with a fine quality dining experience. 'Balkoni' features a great bar to start with, with reasonably priced cocktails and a friendly bartender happy to share... More

This restaurant really ticked all the boxes in that the views were outstanding day/night especially if you were there for sunset. The food was delicious, they had prepared a great menu of the local delights with a modern... More

Located in a non touristic region this restaurant combines tasteful plates with a unique view. The prices are good and quite reasonable. Despite the fact that is away from the sea, there you will find excelent fishes. The staff is polite but the service was not so good. Actually, it wasn't matter of the servers but the were big delays... More

First of all, i have to say that the restaurant is a bit difficult to find, because it is located on top of the hill, but that is the reason why the view is amazing. The staff was very helpful, nice service. Food is fantastic and big portion. The price of the food are acceptable. Enjoying an amazing dinner with... More

If you go there, make sure to ask for a table with a view. The view is excellent, the style and atmosphere inside is average. Food and service are good, with lots of choices for fish delicacies. Parking is not so easy, so it's better to go by taxi.

Located on the hills of Hymmitos mountain,justifies its name ! IT IS A BALCONY providing a spectacular view of the city of Athens. When this view is combined with the fabulous delicacies of the Cyclades.....you feel that the Aegean is just so close! The food is amazing and the service is excellent! Can't wait to go back !!

Balcony to the Cyclades lies at the foot of the Mount Hymettus, only ten minutes away from the Athens city centre, with an incredible view stretching from the Saronic Gulf to Lycabettus Hill and the Acropolis. The atmosphere is stylish, warm and comfortable, an ideal setting for couples, families and friends. The menu focuses on Greek cuisine in a modern and sophisticated approach mainly influenced by the Cycladic culinary culture. The restaurant is supplied daily with pure local products such as meat, cheese, fresh fish and seafood. Extra tips: roof top service from May till September, spectacular sunset view
