Is it Worth it?
If you are wondering if you should continue exploring the city instead of hanging in the sky for dinner, the answer is no. Dinner in the Sky offers historical exploration as well. With views of the Acropolis, Lycabettus, Thision, and Saronic gulf and Parnitha mountain, you don't have to worry about the crowds, tourists, or your tired legs.
If you like thrill, dining while suspended 50 meters in the sky is the way to go. If you are concerned about safety, each seat is securely attached to the table and offer a full lock in seat belt that secures your shoulders and waist. Dinner in the Sky is designed and constructed according to European model EN 13814 that refers to the construction and operation of amusement parks.
Lastly, if you are wondering if there is enough food for the price, the answer is yes. The plates will seem like they just keep coming. And with a welcome cocktail followed by Greek wine accompanying each course - trust me, you will be all set.
One more thing - for the Vegans and Fashionistas:
What you're wearing doesn't matter - stay comfortable. But skirts aren't recommended and sweaters might be needed (evening chill). If you have dietary restrictions just let them know at least two days in advance and they'll totally tailor a menu to your needs.
Enjoy your experience! xx
