Great Greek food. Reasonable wine list.

I would recommend this restaurant for many reasons. The personal service from the owner Kostantinos. You really get that warm feeling. The food is comfort food like the Tarama, Caviar to the house made Hoummus and even the Tzatiki. I recomment the trio with Pita for appetizer and then move into a... read more

There were 14 of us celebrating a birthday and ordered a variety of entrees including lamb, seafood, calamari, chicken and souvlaki. Great service!

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

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 liked the feeling upon entering the restaurant, the owner was very pleasant, the ambience with the interesting carved fresco walls and wooden floor was good. Obviously... 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
