    A magical rooftop in Athens

SENSE Athens

Dining with a view

At first, it’s the view that takes your breath away: The colourful rooftops of Athens, the Acropolis hill with the Parthenon temple on top that feels so close you can almost touch them and on the other side the Lycabettus hill. SENSE Athens, a romantic rooftop restaurant, is conveniently located at the most prestigious spot, on the 7th floor of AthensWas Design Hotel which is in the heart of the historical city of Athens and on the entrance of the main road that leads to the Acropolis hill. Whether you have an al fresco dinner on summer evening or dine in colder weather during winter, this view never ceases to enchant. At the rooftop bar you can enjoy signature cocktails and a panoramic view of the most iconic Athens landmarks.

Modern Greek Cuisine

Any chef in the world would tell you that this view as a backdrop is hard to compete but Alexandros Charalabopoulos knows exactly how to put together the right ingredients for a perfect evening. For the creative chef, using local and fresh produce is not a trend but a mandatory option for his recipes. Moreover, using herbs sourced from our own organic, herb garden, is something hard to find at Athens city center. While the menu is ever-changing, the main inspiration is driven by his childhood memories and the quality products of the Greek land. Even a salad dish like the “Bostani Garden”, is more than a salad. It’s about history, memories and the sense of home and hospitality. No wonder why all his menus start with fresh and homemade sourdough bread accompanied by extra virgin olive oil, curated by the man himself. Pivoting back to the traditional Greek cooking but with a constant eye on the future, the menu celebrates authentic Greek recipes interpreted into refined, fine-dining dishes.

This quality of the ingredients, the cooking approach and the artistry of the flavors, crowned the restaurant with a MICHELIN Plate award.
