3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

we were served the salads with an acceptable delay, but the main courses had a very long delay. After approx. one hour, they served only 2 out of 4. We were waiting for the other 2, but at the end the 2 ate their dish, but the other 2 were still not served! After complaining to the owner, she said... More

Near Syntagma square, very nice for a glass of wine or for a dinner. Good menu with a lot of choices for starters and main plate. Basically it is international with a Greek taste. Good list of wine and good services.

This is one of the best wine bars in Athens with an extensive wine list with a lot of wines from Greece but also from around the world and yet it is much more than a wine bar. First of all the person makes the place and behind By the Glass is Fotini. A lover of great wine, great food... More

A magnificent setting welcomes you from the moment you enter the place. Cozy atmosphere, wonderful people. Exquisite food (you must definitely try the risoto ) accompanied by a large selection of the best wines, to cater for all tastes. Do not neglect the dessert, go for the chocolate souffle, and flavour the perfect ending to a delicious dinner

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.
