Last Updated on August 31, 2020 by Celeste

Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends, and a very long to-do list. For those looking to avoid the fuss, relax and let a chef take care of the cooking! There are several international hotels, restaurants, and organizations in Athens organizing Thanksgiving dinner. I have selected some of my favorite places suitable for celebrating Thanksgiving with family. Here is your guide to my favorite Thanksgiving dinner venues in Athens for 2018.

From all-day lunch/dinner at the elegant GB Roof Garden Bar and the mouthwatering buffet at the Byzantino Restaurant complete with a turkey carving station to mind-blowing Acropolis views at the St. George Lycabettus Hotel and comforting pumpkin pies at the casual Athenian Hard Rock Cafe. These offerings are available on Thursday, November 22.

I have listed the below places in an unranked order. 

St. George Lycabettus Hotel

For one of the best views over Athens and the Acropolis, celebrate Thanksgiving at the St. George Lycabettus Hotel in Kolonaki. This year, the all American Thanksgiving dinner is served at the newly renovated Phaidra Hall and includes pumpkin soup, roast turkey with stuffing, cranberry sauce and gravy and apple pie.
