    We had mixed feelings on this experience. The wine itself and the sommelier were fantastic, really enjoyable and diverse selection. However we were put inside on the second floor after we arrived and the restaurant clearly had no record of our reservation or tasting (they even had to call up the sommolier!). We were pretty blatantly lied to that we were put inside for several reasons including that it was raining (...it wasn't and people were already sitting upstairs) and that it's too loud on the roof to hear the sommelier. I wish the service and experience at the restaurant itself had been as good as the wine!

    Don’t miss this opportunity! The wine, the team, and the food were all phenomenal. And the view ain’t so bad either. ;) We loved it so much that we stayed for dinner, enjoyed dessert, and left with two bottles of delicious Greek wine. The Hill is one of the best experiences in Athens.

    Sooo fantastic! Dimitris was so personable and passionate. We got so many samples it was fantastic to be able to compare so many different wines with more than just a sip! Also the snacks were SOO GOOOD. The only think I wish we asked for was to move up to the 3rd floor balcony for the wine tasting to enjoy the view of the Acropolis, instead we stayed on the street level which was still interesting.
