Gastronomy

AthensWas Hotel houses one of the best rooftop restaurants in Athens. Perched upon the hotel’s topmost floor, The Sense Restaurant is a feast both for your tummy and your eyes. Offering panoramic views of the crown jewel of Athens, the restaurant features sophisticated outdoor and an indoor seating areas.
