The term "elevated dining" may be overused in the culinary world, but this Athens restaurant takes that concept literally. Each night 22 lucky guests are lifted 130 feet in the air to enjoy a six-course meal on a suspended table above the city of Athens.

At the Dinner in the Sky Athens in Athens, Greece, diners are transported up and above the historic city in a floating restaurant concept that delivers 360-degree, unobstructed views. The platform hangs in the air while guests enjoy an authentic Greek meal paired with Greek wines. Each guest is buckled into a reclining and rotating seat that provides safety and security without obstructing the view.

And the views are impossible to beat, with one guest calling it "Athens' most talked-about dining experience."

The floating concept provides unparalleled views of the city and Acropolis, while diners nosh on things like sauteed shrimp over a quinoa salad, soup made with ginger and bee pollen, and slow-cooked beef tenderloin. The one-of-a-kind culinary experience promises to accommodate dietary requests, while providing tasty, authentically Greek flavors.

Dinner in the Sky Athens offers two nightly seatings — 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. — and rates start at $150 per person. Seats fill up fast, so book early.

The Dinner in the Sky concept was started in Belgium and is offered in over 45 countries around the world.
