We wanted to go there for sunday lunch but it was closed. The sign isn't of Athena's anymore. It seems to be a new greek restaurant, but we couldn't find any information in the internet.

Found out this afternoon after going to collect my scarf which I left on our last visit. Notice in the window from a bailiffs that it was closed and that enquiries should be addressed to them.

Proper homemade Greek food, not microwaved frozen. The food was fresh, flavourful and plentiful. The house red was truly nectar. Staff were very friendly and service top notch. A superb restaurant and real value for money. Ok, the decor is more Greek island than City Centre but it just adds to the atmosphere. Highly recommended.

We ate here on a quiet Sunday night & it was pretty dead. The service was good, but not particularly attentive. My Dad and I had the pork sauvlaki which was a bit fatty but edible with a nice tang of lemon & olive oil but the chips were a bit lame - the previous owners used to make their... More

We went again last night as a replacement New Year meal - we'd been on NY Eve, which started out brilliantly, but unfortunately I took ill (NOTHING to do with the restaurant, I have MS) so we had to leave early... So we went and Yiannis and everyone really made up for our lost New Year's Eve. How can you... More

We re regulars here including the time before Yannis took over. The place was going down the pan somewhat but it is now a special place mainly because of quality of food and its owner s attitude to customers. He has a clear vision of what he wants his restaurant to be and his pride in the place is the... More

I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants an excellent dinner in pleasant and relaxed surroundings. I had excellent fresh grilled sardines, followed by delicious sea bass, so fresh it tasted as if had just been caught. The chef goes to great lengths to ensure that he only cooks with the highest quality ingredients. Dinner with good wine wine... More

Booked for NYE. Slightly concerned that expectations would not be met. Totally unfounded as food,service and atmosphere were fantastic. Thanks to all for a brilliant evening, enjoyed by myself, daughter and friends

Athena's has undergone a big change over the past 18 months and I thought it about time I sampled the delights on offer! I chose a mid week evening to call and see exactly what all the fuss has been about. Yannis Alexis welcomed me into his restaurant and I could see immediately why the reviews have been so positive.... More
