Greek neighborhood place in Vancouver West/Kitsilano

We happened upon this restaurant while in Vancouver West, intending for once to cash in on our Entertainment coupons, after we tried two other restaurants in the area that did not pan out.

We had wine and beer from Greece. The whole evening was sublime. It simply could not have been better. outstanding service, hot rolls and nicely timed serving of the dishes, Four... More

We both had the baby lamb and it was terrible. Although there was enough meat the whole meal tasted like it had been prepared days ago. Everything tasted like it had been heated in a microwave. It was dry and very disappointing. How they had the nerve to charge us for this meal is beyond me! 25 years ago this... More

I have a been a regular here for a while. The place is the best Greek food outside of Greece. Appies of calamari are great, prawns in garlic to die for. Main course is tough..I love the eggplant dish, and the chicken is superb, dito the Dolmathes but the teal deal s the lamb. They have two dishes on offer... More

Three of us decided on chicken but got 2 chicken and 1 lamb. That was sent back to the kitchen so it meant that we did not all eat together. Chicken tasted a bit dry and was not seasoned enough. The salad had too much cucumber in it as was very oily. Will not be returning to this one

We ordered Calamari, Hummus & Pita, and a Veggie platter to go this evening. The Hummus and Pita was decent, the greek salad was bad (tomatoes were old and should have been tossed). The Calamari was absolutely horrible! It looked and tasted like it was expired!. My wife and I ate two or 3 pieces and that was all we... More

To start, I had the lamb and it was delicious, but the greatest thing happened there, George our fabulous and amazing waiter saved my life. Life is fragile, thanks to my new hero George, I am here today. While dining at Athene's I choked on a piece of food, and had no air, I got up & moved towards the... More

This place was just awful. It was empty when we arrived for lunch and it stayed that way for our entire meal. I ordered a beef and chicken souvalaki meal. Where do I start... Cons: -The greek salad was not fresh. I don't like when my cucumbers taste pickled and that is precisely what they tasted like. There were no... More

We love going to Athenes for their Greek food, and usually go for the souvlaki - we love the lamb or chicken. The service and value here are great, and the place has a nice atmosphere. It is a nice cosy place to sit inside in winter, and fun outdoor setting when the weather is warm. On top of all... More

What I like about this place is that besides the usual Greek fare, there were quite a few authentic dishes. The chicken livers were outstanding as an appetizer and mousaka and other Greek dishes were on par with some more expensive places. I would not hesitate to return.
