ATHENS, Greece - On the top floor of Hilton Athens overlooking the Acropolis and Lycabettus Hill, Galaxy Bar & Restaurant's amazing veranda is now open for the summer season promising amazing nights under the stars of the Athenian sky.

Start dinner with tuna tartare served with pea and melon soup and taste the freshness and flavours of the Mediterranean Sea. Octopus carpaccio with anchovy-flavored toasted bread, traditional wild greens pie with oil rusks from Cythera Island and Caesar salad with lobster give traditional Greek tastes an international flair. The Black Angus flat iron steak served tagliata style has already become one of the most popular dishes while the rooster pastitsada with fresh kaymak foam is a pleasant surprise for taste buds. Sushi fans will not only enjoy sashimi and nigiri but will also have the chance to experience maki such as the Dragon Roll with panko shrimp California Roll with Hamachi fish and yuzu lemon sauce, and Eel Maki with eel and fish roe.

As for the desert menu, the coconut mille-feuille with salted caramel sauce, the Valrhona cylinder with kumquat sauce and the mastic mousse stuffed traditional loukoumades with Greek coffee sauce will offer the perfect closure to your fantastic dining experience.
