Outdoor Dining in Athens: An Enjoyable and Romantic Experience

The warm climate of Athens allows for many restaurants to offer the occasion to dine outdoors at least six months a year, depending on the weather. During the warmer season, dining outdoors is the ultimate romantic experience with wonderful views, cool gardens, moonlight and candlelight. Terraces, verandahs, roof gardens combined with delicious dishes make for an unforgettable evening. The idyllic atmosphere at Dionysos restaurant with a breathtaking view of the Acropolis and the high quality cuisine and service make it  an all time favorite, both with Athenians and visitors. GB Roof Garden at the prestigious Grande Bretagne hotel is one of the most exclusive places to dine. Fuga, right next to the Athens Concert Hall serves delicious Italian specialties. Parko Eleftherias is situated in an attractive park, a green oasis in the center of Athens.    The remarkable panorama at Varoulko combined with the high quality dining offers all round enjoyment and has created the restaurant's fame and success.  During the summer months Hytra restaurant is  open on the terrace of the Onassis Cultural Centre, with a panoramic view of the surroundings. Artisanal Lounge and Gardens in Kifissia is situated in a beautiful historical building.  The cool, shady garden at Abreuvoir combines ideally with the exquisite French cuisine.
