    You certainly give a different choice of restaurants outside of the touristy cheap eat places in Athens most favoured by the likes of Matt Barrett. It is true the Hilton has great views but find this Hotel and restaurants exorbitant in prices with snooty service.

      We believe that travelers that visit Athens once in a lifetime could pay the price and have a unique experience in one of these places. Surely not for every tourist. And we definitely agree with you about the prices in Hilton.

        Well yes if it is only once in your life I can understand though it would be unfortunate to only visit once such eternal beauty.
