“Great View of Acropolis- Nice experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

I had a great time there, nice coctails and very nice view.
Not so spacious and in the summer it is pretty busy. Coctails are quite expensive .

“Nothing but the view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013 via mobile

Overhyped. I see why locals are attracted to this place on the roof of a hotel. It may be one of those 'in' places of the moment and, as other reviewers here have noted, it certainly affords a stunning view of Acropolis but that's all there is to it. We went there at around 11 am - they'd already stopped serving breakfast. Yan would sort of expect them to serve breakfastall day long judging by the name , wouldn't you? But all they had was ham or chicken toast H was served promptly with a pile of crisps (US: chips)on a plate not even some sliced cukes or tomatoes -hardly worth € 5. worth going for the view but not their very limited menu or overpriced drinks

“Great view of Acropolis, a change in the food scenery”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

We came to the cafe to eat something different (we were tired of fried fish, potatoes, chicken etc.) the place is located on top of the A for Athens hotel, with great view of the Acropolis, right on top of Monastiraki square.

The place was packed with young folks, had good music and atmosphere.

at first we had the most obnoxious waiter who then was replaced with a lovely and polite one.

We ordered Ceaser salad, salmon sandwich and a soft drink. the order also came with a few pieces of bread and bread sticks and some tap water as costumed in Greece. Our order was tasty, the bill was around 20 euro (the soft drink alone cost 3.5 euro for a bottle of 250 ml).

“Amazing views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Worth buying a drink just for the view. Very small, so be prepared to stand, or otherwise visit late or early in the evening

“Good view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

It was lovely to look at the Acropolis while sipping coffee and enjoying breakfast.It's not a big room so better have your breakfast early to get a good spot.
