This is a little restaurant with about 6 tables and a few bar stools tightly squeezed in together. The service was excellent and the food was good. Good coffee and good water. Awesome lunch spot - but time it because it is jam packed.

The bistro was fabulous. The service was excellent and the food was bountiful and refreshing. The lasagna was huge and really good and the 70's burger was absolutely fantastic. A huge amount of food for your dollar. Was great to taste local cuusine.

Friendly and home cooked meals at a reasonable price. Large variety and breakfast is served all day. The food was awesome and you get lots to eat. Its a small restaurant, seats about 25 people,so come early.

Just had to comment on this wonderful little cafe. We come here often as the food is all homemade, high quality, delicious with generous portions. Athena the Greek is delightful as is Michel the bistro chef extraordinaire. Athena's Greek desserts are to die for. Breakfast is stellar with a side of homemade baked beans even. Customer service doesn't get any... More

This restaurant was suggested by a friend, and it did go beyond meeting our expectations. Prices were very reasonable. The 2 can dine for 29.99 is an exceptional price for the quality/portion of food. A true mom & pop establishment. Wonderful soups, entres and desserts. Have been twice this month, and will be happy to be a 'regular'. Loved it!

I think that Bistro 535 / from Athena's Kitchen is a sort of unknown gem in Penticton. Athena and Michel are incredibly friendly and inviting people - easy to talk to and un-shy about customer service and checking up on you. While there is some differing opinions on the atmosphere, I actually appreciate that the dining area is simple and... More

It's rare that you happen upon a random little bistro that ends up truly surprising you. The name on Trip Advisor is misleading as this place has a dual personality. Part Greek and part modern Canadian cuisine. The warmth and personal service by Athena and Chef Michel make this place a must. The food is all excellent and priced so... More

I've only been to this restaurant once, but I'm definitely going back. We ordered the $29.99 special dinner for two. The minestrone and the creamy basil tomato soups were excellent. The greek salad that accompanied my entree was very fresh and tasty, and both entrees were good. Garlic toast also accompanied the entrees. The generous sized desserts were very yummy... More

I stopped by this place on a whim looking for a wrap for lunch and left with a whole bag full of food! The service was so warm and friendly, they made me feel like they really valued my patronage. The wrap that I ordered was delicious, the panko crusted chicken was moist and the sauce they used was to... More
