The Acropolis Museum Restaurant is included among the top five places to eat in the world alongside the restaurants of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York and the Musée d’Orsay in Paris.
The selection of the top five museum restaurants was made by online travel research site and travel community VirtualTourist.com and reproduced by Canadian newspaper Toronto Star.
“Acropolis Museum Restaurant, Athens: Most travelers to Greece plan to visit ruins. They can also admire them during a delicious meal?”
The article noted that the museum’s restaurant is located only 300 meters from the Acropolis site itself, a convenient location that “makes it a great place to grab a bite after a long day of exploring the ruins.”
The Toronto Star said the museum’s restaurant provides panoramic, unobstructed views of the Acropolis and a menu comprised of hot dishes based on traditional Greek favorites.
“The restaurant is open during museum opening hours, but also on Friday nights, when it stays open until midnight and offers exceptional night views of the Acropolis,” the newspaper concludes.
