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.

The beef, lamb and chicken souvlakia are all very good, although my personal favourite is the beef. The pizzas, calamari and baked spaghetti are good too. What sets Athene`s apart for me is their hummus and the roast potatoes. Service is top notch. Athene`s has been a family favourite for many years and still holds top spot as our ``treat``... More

This is plebian Greek food. They do a nice job of service and food preparation. We find it also to be reasonable for the plate of food you receive for the price.

My family loves Greek cuisine, and we've tried a number of places during our travels and experiences, from Singapore (Blu Kousina), Manila (Cafe Mediterranean), Toronto (Zorba's), Vancouver (Simpatico)... So this one was up against tough competition, if it was competition. But it really isn't. As long as the place meets our expectations of genuine Greek food, quality and tasty and... More
