Description: GB Roof Garden Restaurant & Bar The view from the GB Roof Garden Restaurant & Bar is breathtaking. In the most ideal location, the uninterrupted views of the Acropolis, Lycabettus hill and the Parliament are truly magnificent. The Restaurant - awarded by the Wine Spectator magazine three years in a row - serves New Mediterranean cuisine with emphasis on quality raw materials and excellent technique. For breakfast or lunch, the elegant and warm environment of the GB Roof Garden restaurant creates a tranquil atmosphere, while dinner is perfect when the city lights come on and the cosmopolitan aura becomes apparent.

I am a frequent customer of this hotel's Aethrion all-day cafe and restaurant on the ground floor, but a friend invited me to the Roof Garden for lunch on her birthday.
The most amazing view of the Acropolis was my first impression, of which I took several photographs before even opening the lavish menu brought by a polite waitress. Then we got down to the business of making a choice, and it was VERY hard work picking something from all the wonderful fare on offer!
We finally settled on fresh grilled fish for the main dish, a sumptuous salad for starters and an absolutely mouthwatering chocolate mousse for dessert.
The fare lived up to its description in the menu, the waiter who served the fish knew his business of filleting a fish for two, and the whole service was up to the standards of a luxury hotel.
Since it was lunch, and we had to go back to work, we only drank sparkling water, but from what I could make out of the wine list, it's impressive!
However, a word to the wise: the prices are rather steep.

Very american kind of meal so if you want that there is only a few upscale places to get it. Desserts were supposed to be specialty- not really that great. Meals were OK. Difficulty sitting us where we had reserved. No attention to detail

I dined at this restaurant twice - for dinner as the sun was setting and for a late breakfast the next day. The view of the Parthenon is spectacular, and the food and service are excellent.
