From the rooftop of the elegant boutique hotel in question, the magic of Athens is unveiled.

It is not only the Temple of Hephaestus at the height of your table or the Acropolis that rises before your eyes, illuminated in all its glory. It’s also the streets you’ve walked for miles, the buildings of Ermou you’ve surely hurried past, all of which take on a completely different, captivating look from the elevation of Mira Me Athens.
Just this year, this breathtakingly beautiful rooftop with a singularly awe-inducing view acquired an opening glass so that we can enjoy it all year round, from the heart of winter to the warm summer breeze. This is just the first of a series of delicious new things that await us this year at Mira Me Athens…
Both in the kitchen and in the bar of Mira Me, everything starts with the raw materials: seasonal fruits and vegetables from selected farms, vegetable gardens and small producers, and Greek microbreweries, all with an unswerving devotion to quality. With these impeccable raw materials in his hands, executive chef Aris Roussos has created a profoundly delicious Mediterranean menu, which is made even more exciting thanks to the Asian touches masterfully created by Head Chef Grigoris Boniakos and his team.
So you’ll try a stunning fava bean with sundried tomato bisque and wild mushroom sauce, fresh sourdough tartare with mango, citrus, and passion fruits, handmade linguine with scallops and sea urchin, as well as a sensational Iberico pork topped with textured carrot and a tangy citrus-flavored sauce that melts in the mouth with every bite.
The food at Mira Me is an occasion that merits the accompaniment of an exquisite wine label. The well-known, award-winning sommelier Aris Sklavenitis has done an excellent job creating a wine list with the best Greek wineries, that every wine lover should know.
You can come to this magical terrace just for a drink or for one of the signature cocktails of experienced bartenders. And of course, let’s not forget Mira Me’s bustling brunch (served daily 10:00-15:00), which is extremely rich and delicious, just as it should be. Yes, this rooftop has it all. For that and the way you look at it, it becomes your home. You can’t do otherwise…
