Food and service was amazing. The timing could have been a bit faster but over all worth the visit. Their wine paring was very generous! 6 very full glasses! Lol

We chose the 11 course tasting menu with wine paring. Although the portions were not large as some reviewers commented, this was not unexpected with so many courses. The presentation and service was great and we had the corner table with an amazing view. The...food very good overall and the presentation was always impressive, some courses were less flavorful than others. Based on our conversations with the wait staff of our other dining experiences in Athens, they brought us (what we in Louisiana call Lagniappe - a little something extra) a taste of a drink after the meal in addition to the typical Mastiha (I’m not certain what it was, perhaps Tsipouro) which was a nice touch. While the meal was expensive, for the overall experience I would say that it was reasonable.More

Great food with spectacular views. We chose a 12 course dinner with a cocktail pairing. Squid spaghetti and crawfish with florina pepper were the most popular dishes. The chicken was also quite surprised by its excellent service and juiciness. The cocktails were perfectly matched, I...liked Verde Margarita the most!More

What an experience! Fantastic food, service and setting. Every single plate was delicious. Our waitress Elizabeth was outstanding. Can’t wait to return again.

The restaurant was very noisy and the portions tiny . First “course”( so tiny it was a mouthful) of cucumber soup was bitter. Minuscule portions of ordinary food. No non alcoholic drink options apart from fruit juice and coke. Over priced . Food ok but...not worthy of a Michelin star. Meant to be service included but then the waiter asked if we wanted to tip. I left my cardigan behind and despite calls and emails they have not responded .More

We tasted the 13 course degustation menu at Hytra during our recent trip to Athens and it was an experience to remember. The meal, along with wine pairing (one of us opted for cocktail pairing) lasted around 4 hours, during which we were presented with...innovative, freshly done and tasty food of amazing variety - the langoustine wrapped in spinach, the pear tart, the squid, tomato with bacon - all of them were superb. By the time the deserts came, we were quite full, but could not miss the chocolate looking like a mini skull. The wines (all locally sourced in Greece) were excellent and the service was top notch. Definitely a place to go for fine dining lovers, if you are in Athens. Also, don't miss the amazing view of lit up Acropolis as you dine - one of the great treasures of the world !More

The service at Hytra was simply fantastic. Even it was very busy on a Tuesday night, the waiters kept the high service level and it felt very personal and intimate despite the quite big size of the restaurant. Food was excellent, too.

We held a private drinks party here for 100+ guests. It was fantastic! The organisation and preparation was efficient and patient considering the party was booked in Autumn 2019 and held in Spring 2022! The service on the night was exceptional - nothing was too...much trouble, the staff were friendly and efficient. The ambiance was really nice with fantastic views, soft lighting and lovely background music. Oh and they serve a decent sized gin & tonic! All in all we were delighted.More

Well.. Paradise is there. Beautiful view to the Akropolis and special tastes in the mouth...nothing else is to much. Great service and so rich dishes with plenty of tastes

We had the 14-course tasting menu and it was a real disappointment. First of all, the first 4 courses of the menu were not courses but amuse-bouche even though the restaurant calls them courses...really misleading. I frequently go to 1 star michelin restaurants and I...have to admit that there was absolutely nothing special about this menu. The portions were very small and after a couple of courses (or amuse bouche rather), we were still feeling very hungry. The trick of this tasting menu is that in the middle of the menu, the waiter brought a massive piece of bread with butter and this was considered as a dish. Obvisouly, it made us full but bread, as far as I am aware, is not a course but a side...this was another misldeading course. While the staff was friendly, the service was definitely too fast and at one point I ended up with 2 dishes on the table. This is really poor as we could not even take our time to enjoy our food. Also, we have been asked to pay a waiter charge in the end while the menu clearly states that the waiter charge is included, rather frustrating to get this kind of ask. If the waiter charge is not included, then do not mention the opposite on the menu. The michelin guide states "that this restaurant is worth the stop"...well, they should certainly reconsider their opinion as it was not a great experience at all. My conclusion is definitely not worth the stop...you can find much better restaurants in Athens with more affordable prices than Hytra.More
