I stayed at the Grande Bretagne for five days, and mostly ate at the hotel because the food was so good and the service impeccable. My first night in Athens I had the crab ravioli -- although minimalist, with a hint of lemongrass it was absolutely superb. This was followed by a perfectly cooked sea bass and a dessert of... More

Probably one of the best upscale restaurants of Athens. Food is very nice, the view on the Acropolis is fantastic and a very professional service. Prices are what you should expect at a luxury restaurant like this, but for me it was worth every euro. When I am again in Athens I will surely visit this restaurant again.

We stayed at the hotel and booked a table for dinner. We were given a table overlooking the Acropolis - absolutely fantastic. Waiters and sommelier were great. Food delicious. Dress code turned out to be a little more casual than I had expected. Definite must-do and highly recommend.

We enjoyed the beautiful breakfast buffet from the GB Roof Garden and also visited at night to see the Acropolis lit up. This was so amazing - it didn't even seem real!

The GB Roof Garden restaurant is a top dining experience in Athens. The location is great, with fantastic views of the Acropolis and other landmarks of Athens. The food is excellent. Everything we tried was superb. The risotto with mushrooms and truffle was a poem. The three different beef dishes we had were all mouth-watering. And the service was also... More

Good food and drinks, be careful of which liquor you order as one shot can be 15 euro. My dinner with three drinks was 60 euro with a 10 euro tip. So it is very pricey for Greece. Great view. Food was well prepared and service was great.

Celebrated our anniversary at GB and the restaurant is great!! Amazing view - certainly one of the best in Athens - and great service, friendly abd efficient. Tye food average but ok. Anyway, the reason you might choose this restaurant is more about the atmosphere than the food itself. Mainly tourists and few greeks. Still a giod choice.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
