On the plus side: the food was fine, not anything special but not terrible either. However it was inconsistent; the starters were much better than the mains. Also, the view from the restaurant's top floor was spectacular. On the other hand however: service was slow (the entire meal lasted about 2 hours, the majority of which was just waiting), we...

As I'm sure you've already read, it has a great view. My husband and I wandered down the street from where we were staying for dinner our first night in Athens. We had just flown in that afternoon and we're pretty exhausted. Both donned in jeans and a sweatshirt we didn't realize we had walked into a fairly fancy restaurant.... More

It has been some time now since we last had dinner at Strofi, but from what I know it continues to be an excellent choice. Superb views of the Acropolis, courteous service, very friendly towards our children, big portions, tasty Greek cuisine.

Nice view. Food was luke warm and fairly average. Also over priced when you consider value for money. If I find myself in Athens again I'll give it a miss

Friendly atmosphere, great view of the Acropolis (although had to turn my back to see it!). Food bit rich and portions large. Bit pricey for what it is, but definitely a recommendation. Good selection of local wine - stick to white.

OK so here's the deal - view under the Acropolis is pretty good - closer than Rooftop Garden GB but not as good as Dionysos Zonars. Narrow entry up flights is mediocre at best. Food is good and plentiful - wine list is moderate - but no spirits outside of 3 lower shelf varieties. Is it good ? Is it... More

A mid-March night time visit to the restaurant top floor. The view is impressive and expect this is amazing in the warmer months. The food and service was excellent and our waiter was very friendly and helpful. The quality and flavour of the food was high. Greek wines were good too.

Best food i had in Greece. The view of acropolis is awesome. Need reservation if going for dinner after 8pm. I was there at 7pm and it was quite empty until 8pm. Price was also reasonable for good food and good atmosphere.

Thank Choi J

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
