    Fantastic. We can learn about kitchen artistry and exquisite service here. Personnel was fantastic without exception, from the reception to the personalized staff. I would like to detach the sympathy and perfect attentiveness of Ioanna, a very good professional. Oh, and of course Chrisa, without her support it would not be possible for me to enjoy this happy evening. Thank you for your service.

    Well first of all I booked this night a month in advance of my trip. The evening of our dinner I called the restaurant to double check on their dress code. I explained who I was and said I'd be there by 8pm. Upon arrival we were led to our table. It was along the edge overlooking the Acropolis! It was the only table left along the edge and others were seated towards the inside already. I would like to think that they saved this table for us. Not sure if it was because we booked through Bookatable or because I had called a couple of hours prior. I was a bit breathless, feeling very special sitting in my chair staring at the Acropolis as they handed us our menus and draped our laps with the napkins. We started with a lovely bottle of wine, from California no less. We had Greek Salad, scallops, fillet mignon, lobster orzo, and finally a tiramisu. All of the food was very good, cooked and seasoned well. Being from Las Vegas, Nevada, I cannot say it was the best food I have ever tasted, but was very good and the night was so special. They probably could have served me cereal and I would still be cherishing the night. If you have the chance to go, do it! You will have a meal of a lifetime!

    The view of the Acrópolis at night under a full moon was outstanding! As we ate and talked, we repeatedly looked up to admire the view. The food was sophisticated and tasted very good. The wine and the kit preparation were good and excellent respectively. I would certainly recommend without reservations. The menu is pricing but the experience wonderful.

    Well the view goes without saying, it is always a concern that the better the view the poorer the meal. Thankfully this wasn't the case. We only had a main course, followed by desert and a few of the signature cocktails. The meal was excellent although they could have done a bit more with the zucchini on my risotto, only 3 paper thin slices.... Good and HOT though which is so often not the case. The waiters were good with English although my husbands salmon dish was not the one he ordered, he was very happy with it. ( it did cost 10 euros more but we were happy to pay the difference although there was an offer to reduce the bill.) On the whole, I would recommend the experience both for the food and atmosphere. The wine prices were stupidly expensive an Australian ordinary red selling for 10x what we pay locally!

    Gray view, good food but could have been better, main meals a bit bland but starter was great. Very expensive at around €90 a head

    A wonderful experience ... We were seated right away as per our reservation. The service and food were excellent. The view of the Parthenon of course can't be beat. The prices weren't bad considering the luxury of the hotel and the ambience. The food, a before dinner drink, wine with dinner and dessert came to about $100. per person including tip.
