Stayed at the Grand Bretagne Hotel in downtown Athens and used the GB Roof Garden restaurant for numerous breakfasts and dinners. Restaurant is outside with a roof over it, and a beautiful view of downtown Athens and the Acropolis. Impossible to describe how stunning this view and location really is. Service, food, menu, all wonderful. If you are fortunate enough... More

We wanted a nice view for our last dinner in Athens, and this place was just that. The view was inspired. The food was delicious: Orzo Lobster pasta was scrumptious, the grilled calamari was good. The service was professional and friendly. The whole experience was excellent.

OK so here's the deal - if you are on a budget - then think twice before booking. The menu is not extensive but covers a good range. The wine list is very International which is a little unusual in Greece and is not expensive. Of course the view is superb and the "Selfie spot" must be used (the waiter/ess... More

Service fitting for the 5* hotel, combined with a view of the Parthenon in the distance from tables on the balcony. We had lunch which was really enjoyable. It is about as expensive as you might expect for this standard, so it is certainly not cheap. Is it worth it? Probably.

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.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
