Breakfast

Stopped here for breakfast and it was very good. Home cooked meals with fresh ingredients. The service was very friendly. We will be back.

Great food and friendly service. Portions are adequate for the prize and the salads are fresh. one suggestion would be for the pita served, to be grilled and brushed with olive oil. as it is served, it comes off stale

We so enjoy coming to Athens, the food never disappoints. Great flavors, presentation and the staff is very welcoming. It feels like you are at home, lots of families and great conversations and laughter going on. Our favorite is the chicken souvlakia dinner, very good and great prices. We always get three or four appetizers for the hole table to... More

This restaurant has the best lamb I have ever tasted with the exception of my wife, who is a chef. Their service is wonderful, efficient, pleasant, and courteous while their menu is huge and the prices are very reasonable. They have been the top family restaurant in Halifax for quite some time now and there is good reason for that.

I enjoyed a lunch for the first time today with some family members. I had the hot chicken sandwich with some excellent home made fries and coleslaw. The other option was chips which were home made and excellent as well. My nephew had a chicken gyro which came with fries and a greek salad. Everyone was most pleased with their... More

To start, I loved Athens. It was always my choice when it came to Greek food. I always thought that their prices were excellent for the amount of food that you get. Plus the food was always excellent with a lot of variety in choices so it pretty much has something for everyone. I've brought friends and coworkers, who had... More

Had supper here on a business trip. Pleasantly surprised to see the menu had specified gluten free, vegan etc dishes for those of us with dietary concerns. The food was very good and you got a good portion. The falafels were almost as good as the ones I ate in Egypt and gluten free!

I have been to this location several times and it rarely disapoints. Being a huge breakfast fan, specifically with the eggs benedict, I am really pleased to see more than one Benny option. I selected the Greek Benedict, poached medium with homefries and a side perogies. Everything was just fabulous, warm and it didn't take to long. My coffee was... More

Awesome Eggs Benny. Great spot for breakfast. Sadly I haven't been for lunch or dinner so I cant say but if breakfast is any indication I would say you're safe.
