The Hilton Galaxy Bar & Restaurant is one of the best rooftop restaurants in Athens. On the 13th floor of Hilton Athens hotel, it offers stunning views of the Acropolis. But also, it is famous for its cocktails and delicious sushi. As a result, it is simply a must experience in Athens!
The Hilton Galaxy experience
Hilton Galaxy is popular with celebrities and Athenians who love good food. Especially in the summer, its great balcony is often packed. Many come to enjoy its famous cocktails at sunset. But there’s more to Galaxy than imaginative cocktails. First of all, the sushi bar is a big hit. Also, the grill serves delicious Angus burgers and steaks. Add the amazing view to the mix, and you see why this place is so popular!
As Hilton Galaxy was one of my parents’ favourite spots while I was growing up, I’m always happy to dine there. For me, there’s nothing better than to sit back and enjoy a delicious meal with a view of the Acropolis. Not to mention the excellent service. In true 5-star hotel style, at Hilton they guess what you want before you even think of it!
Behind the great food at Hilton Galaxy you’ll find the hotel’s Executive Chef, Kostas Athanasiou. As well as the Galaxy Chef, George Kaperdas. This team is responsible for the restaurant’s cosmopolitan menu.
First of all, they use only the finest ingredients for the dishes they create. In addition. they are inspired by Mediterranean culinary traditions. The result is familiar dishes with modern twists. For instance, there’s grilled sardines with avocado mousse.
Sushi at Hilton Galaxy Restaurant
Sure, there is a big variety of dishes on offer at the restaurant. But for me, it’s all about the sushi. To be honest, when I first tried sushi, I didn’t much like it. But then, I ate sushi at Hilton Galaxy. And it was love at first bite! I have yet to find its equal in Athens.
So when I got invited to stay at the Athens Hilton, I was excited. Another opportunity for sushi! As it was winter though, I enjoyed my meal indoors. Needless to say, the view was just as amazing!
There’s so many sushi dishes to choose from. To be honest, I love anything with crab and shrimp. Consequently, my favourites are the Dragon Roll and the Tokyo. The Dragon Roll has panko shrimp, cucumber, bric, mayo and teriyaki glaze. The Tokyo has crab, tempura shrimp, avocado, spicy mayo, cucumber, eel and teriyaki glaze. Naturally, the Dragon roll is shaped like a dragon.
If you want something different, how about the Surf ‘n’ Turf? It has veal fillet, panko shrimp and spicy mayo. A delicious combination of earth and sea. Best enjoyed with chopsticks.
Without a doubt, there’s something for everyone at the Hilton Galaxy Restaurant. Best of all, it has the best view of Athens. Just make sure to leave room for dessert. They are simply delicious! Like the chocolate “millefeuille” I had this time.
