People with bladder conditions – If you suffer from a medical condition and you’re not able to hold pee for 90 minutes. Once the table is up, the toilet is not available.

Children with height under 120 cm – Although the experience is not age-restricted, there is a minimum height required related to security. Also, from our experience, fine dining may not be something young kids will really enjoy.

Our Experience

We stayed in Athens for 2 weeks and did a lot of tours, but Dinner in the Sky really stood out for us. We enjoyed every minute of it. From the welcome drink (we wished we had arrived a little earlier to enjoy it more) to every bite of each course.

Each dish was beautifully presented and tasted incredible. Our friendly waiter took photos of us, laughed with us, and ensured our glasses were never empty.

Dinner In The Sky: FAQ

Is Dinner in the Sky Athens worth it?

It is totally worth it! It’s an amazing and very unique activity that is kind of a once-in-a-lifetime experience. On top of that, it’s a great way to spend an evening with friends or loved ones and a great way to celebrate something special like a birthday or anniversary.

What do you wear to Dinner in the Sky Athens?

You can wear whatever you feel like, but because it’s a fine dining experience, we recommend dressing up a little for your Athens Greece Dinner in the Sky event. The official dress code is smart casual. In terms of shoes, avoid wearing loosely fitted flip-flops, which you may lose during the dinner.

It may be a little windy at times, but it’s unlikely to be cold. We did ours in May and felt that the air temperature was similar to the one on the ground. But, if you’re worried, you can take a light jacket with you.

What if you have to go to the bathroom during Dinner in the Sky?

You will be asked to visit the bathroom before your Athens Sky dinner starts. Then, you will spend about 90 minutes suspended on the crane without a toilet option. If you suffer from a condition that requires you to go to the bathroom more often, then unfortunately, this experience is not for you.

What time should I arrive for my dinner?

You should arrive at least 15 minutes before the start time, but we recommend leaving sooner to make sure you have enough time to find the location.
