Our last night in Athens on our 10th wedding anniversary trip to Greece. The rooftop seating area has a beautiful view of The Acropolis. Note that only about 5 tables have perfect view, but the rest also have great ambiance. If you wanted a perfect view make a reservation ahead and ask for a table to the left and out front. The food was great and the wait staff is very friendly.

Great time, great atmosphere. The service overall from start to finish was what we expected. We received Prosecco to celebrate our honeymoon, followed with a great selection of cheese and appetizers that were recommended by our server/manager.

The sea bass left me wanting a take home portion as well.

We didn’t receive our requested cheese selections to take home, at the end of the night it seemed they took longer to get our check and for us to cash out. Perhaps that’s the only reason they didn’t get a full 5 star.

Aside from the lack of step of service mentioned above, we enjoyed the food, ambiance, food pairings, hospitality. Definitely recommend the location.

My wife and I came here seeking a lovely meal of outstanding quality - that’s exactly what we got. The scenery was amazing (perfect view of acropolis) and service was attentive.

The only point of improvement would be the “pie”, which is basically prosciutto and cheese on bread. Other than that, a great dining experience.

Superb service, especially with wine. Lovely view of the Acropolis at 1 o’clock and Lycabeus at 11 o’clock. Vibrant neighborhood.

Awesome location and service. Pretty good food (although wouldn’t say it’s top quartile in Athens). Great view of the Akropolis.

Food was very good, but the management not so much. While the rooftop space is very nice and technically overlooks the Acropolis, you cannot see much from many of the tables. The entire time we sat at the restaurant, the front row tables adjacent to the balcony/facing the Acropolis were empty. While management claimed that these were reserved from weeks ahead of time, clearly, no one showed up. Instead of seating everyone with reservations on a first come, first served basis, management claimed that the best tables went to those who reserved long ahead of time — makes no sense, and as shared, most of these parties did not show up. It was shocking to see the management turn people away and seat those of us who actually showed up to our reservations far in the back. Really not pleased with the service. Disappointing, as I expected better.

The best dinner we had on our trip to Athens. The food was fantastic. The lamb and sea bass were the best we had ever eaten. The Octopus was superb. The salad was so fresh and we don’t believe we can eat tomatoes anywhere else.

The wine was fantastic. Greek wines (yes, even reds) are the best kept secret. George was excellent in helping us pick a great wine.

Elias and his team were superb on the service end. He was also very helpful in planning our santorini itinerary.

Overall a fantastic experience. Probably one of the best I have ever had. Food, wine and service were superb. And this is before the magnificent views of the acropolis from the rooftop.

Bravo! This is a must visit for all Athenians and visitors to Athens.

Slow service, they took her order incorrectly twice. Brought out the wrong dish. Waited 20 minutes for them to tell us they did not have the wine we wanted. Took over an hour to get one meal as we rejected the second because it was wrong. They tried to make up with it with desserts which were very good.

Beautiful rooftop restaurant with a stunning view of the acropolis. Food was delicious and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Cocktails we had were fantastic also i highly recommended. Only criticism was their vegan options which were not the best but at least they had them as most restaurants did not. 5*

I really enjoyed the food and the wine, we didn’t order much as we were full after having some chicken which was really nice and served quite extravagant. However as much as the waiter who was serving our table was nice to us I’ve heard him talking about our order with a laughter and when I was passing by from the toilet he went silent. He did almost a perfect job but this summed his service up. I mean one bad thing but it just showed how rude he really was. Not everyone is or wants to be as chubby as him, some people just take care of their bodies and their life. He clearly was not either his body or personality.

Good starters (we didn't receive the mains), but poor service.
The mains were brought to the table when we were still only half way through our starters (which were good, btw). The waiter realised the mistake and took the mains back. But we didn't receive them anymore, despite waiting for two hours.

Another annoying issue was that we were given a table in the back (the restaurant is advertised for its views), although most of the tables by the window remained unoccupied during our 2,5h dinner. I don't know if it was just poor service or bad management. What I know is that we were disappointed.

New year's Eve dinners have always been rough for restaurants that change their menu to prefix because the kitchen and wait staff are not use to this type of service. This restaurant was no exception. The roof top patio was amazing. The kitchen and waiters didn't know pace and we sat for 3hrs for a 5 course meal that could have been done in half the time. The wait staff also didn't present the courses appropriately. When asked a question, the waitress answered incorrectly about if an ingredient was included. This same waitress also had her hair band wrapped around her wrist, not exactly hygienic when serving food with that same hand.

Das Restaurant heißt jetzt "Hill", was uns zunächst etwas verwundert hat. Mit der Reservierung hat aber alles geklappt. Wurden herzlich empfangen. Essen, Ambiente, Aussicht, Service waren top. Preise sind für das Gesamtpaket mehr als in Ordnung. Werden gerne wiederkommen.

The biggest issue we had was the menu at the restaurant was substantially different than what was on Open Table. The ambiance and views are amazing, but the food wasn't what we thought we were going to be treated to, and while I understand that restaurants do make changes to menus, the menu offered was a departure from what we were expecting. However, the food was good, and the experience overall was delightful.

I can't fault the service or the food, it was very good, the restaurant is however tired and past it. the view to the Acropolis is through old pvc windows that need either a good clean or replacement, nothing special in terms of fitting out.

We had a wonderful view, and excellent wait staff! There were many servers waiting on us. We never felt over visited or ignored. My husband had the bbq chicken (which is a huge portion and could have been shared). I had their sea bass which was delicious as well. Perfect portion!

We hit the Open Table jackpot. Exactly as reviews promised: gorgeous meal plates with care: gorgeous spot watching the evening sky turn pink over the Acropolis; terrific service. Grateful to the sommelier for excellent wine recommendations. Wish our Athens stay had been longer: we’d have been back here every night, and we’re especially sorry not to have time to try the wine tasting.

We had our dinner there when we stayed in Athens. We went up to the rooftop and the view was very nice from up there but it was a bit crowded that night. The manager nicely moved us to a better table and we had a very nice view of our own of the acropolis and food was amazing as well.

We’ve cancelled a reservation at a very “fancy” restaurant, to try this one, and it was the best choice ever.
Everything my wife and I ordered (3 starters, 2 entrees, 1 dessert, a bottle of red, and a dessert wine) was phenomenal. And so was the view from our table on the roof top.
