There are great views of the Acropolis all over Athens. That being said, some of these are way better than others. A great view happens to be at the Galaxy Restaurant & Bar on the top of the Hilton hotel in Athens, Greece. I also stayed at the Hilton which you’ll have to read about in a separate article. Wink.
The restaurant and bar offers a gorgeous setting to enjoy the city view and their menu is unique, offering both Greek and Japanese cuisine. The meal started off with amuse bouche which looked great and tasted amazing!
I wanted to get a full feel for the menu, so I ordered items from both the Greek selections as well as the Japanese. I went with the combination sushi platter to start. Overall, it’s not quite Japan, but still tasty with a great presentation.
The next dish was a Japanese styled salad with a salmon fillet. The salmon was extraordinary. Lots of seaweed in the salad too made Pierre happy.
The next dish after these first two were scallops. The scallops had a very unique presentation and were perfectly cooked. You know what I’m talking about, slightly crispy on the top and bottom where they’re seared, and juicy and tender on the inside!
Now it was time for my two favorite dishes of the evening! These were the traditional Petoura pasta from Grevena, Greece with black pork pancetta, mushrooms and a poached egg. The pork was extraordinary!
The other main course was the Black Angus ribeye steak with rocket salad. This was a fantastically cooked steak, perfectly pink on the inside.
For dessert was a giant assortment of sweets! It was almost too much to handle.
Circling back to the view, I can’t get over it. This was one of my last dinner reviews in Athens, and it was a great send off. This city is gorgeous and having a meal at the Galaxy Restaurant & Bar at the top of the Hilton is perfect. I can highly recommend you to both stay at the Hilton Athens and enjoy Galaxy Restaurant & Bar. Enjoy!
