Staying at the Athens Hilton we ate 3 times at the Byzantino and found the food nothing out of the ordinary and a bit overpriced. The first night we ate there after arriving from a long flight from Taiwan. (We ate there for convenience sake.) My husband had the buffet and although the food was good he found that it was nothing special. I wasn't feeling my best so I discount my meal for that night. We decided to give it a try another night and were both disappointed. Again - nothing special. Our third meal was a breakfast and it was actually the best meal we had there. I would recommend you give their breakfast a try but eat out for your other meals.

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to share with us your experience at Byzantino.

It is rather sad to read that you were not impressed with the food offered, despite our buffet being one of the most famous buffets offered in the city. We are happy you enjoyed your breakfast, indeed a lavish buffet of healthy and international variety of dishes.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Best Regards
Anastasia Apostolopoulou

Hilton is one of my favourite Athenian hotels mostly thanks to its iconic 60s architecture. Still eating at Byzantino was a rather disappointing experience. Food is mostly mediocre (I chose from the menu and not from the buffet/the latter might be a far better choice). The caesar salad was terribly oily and cheesy and the beef fillet was not as tasty as one would expect when the price is 38 euro. Service was also average again mostly in relation to the prices one has to pay.

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Byzantino.

It is rather concerning to read that you were not satisfied with the food quality of our menu dishes. Your comment on the Caesar salad and beef filet has been forwarded to the Head Chef to investigate what went wrong. Also, the service issue will be discussed with the team.

We appreciate your comments as these pinpoint instances where the experience in our restaurant was less than positive. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

We look forward to welcoming you back in Byzantino Restaurant.

Best Regards
Anastasia Apostolopoulou

Every now and then, I 'd drop in and think of giving it a chance. Never better than mediocre, and predictable. Convenient location, but really, so much food, so much without substance. If you have to go for the purpose of convenience, do sit beside the big glass windows and start traffic-watching.

The "Byzantine" is a restaurant in the Athens Hilton. It is located in a pavillion like structure adjacent to the main hotel, and as such it is quite nice, at no point you get the claustrophobic feeling that you are in a big hotel. The food is buffet. I must confess I hate buffet places. But "Byzantine" is an exception. All items are excellent, there is a reasonable breadth of choice in both the cold and the hot section, and the fruits and deserts will satisfy almost everyone. In my last visit I had excellent grouper with artichokes and roasted peppers!
Service is one of the strongest features of the place, and the value for money is reasonable.

Indeed our Sunday buffet is well known for being lavish and offering a variety of items that satisfy all tastes. Even more, the chefs at the open kitchen can prepare your ideal omelette or scrambled eggs, the way you prefer it!
