Good value for specified food

We have ordered the pan fried haddock on a few occasions and never have been disappointed. The Greek salad and roasted potatoes have been delicious. If you want excellent fish without 5 star ambiance but very good service, I would recommend Athens.

Visiting with friends in Hfx we had a leisurely brunch Sat Jan 16 at Athens. The waiter was very both friendly and professional. We ate, laughed and reminisced for 2 hours and never once felt like we were being rushed or like we needed to leave. The menu is wonderful, the buffet is $11.99 all you can eat on Sat... More

We were looking for a place to dine after church for a three-generation family ranging down to age 2. Although the food was somewhat slow in coming, it was not unendurably so, and the Athens fitted the bill. Most of us just had loads of appetizers. One had a small meal of very tasty halibut. All the food was great.

We dropped into Athens last Friday the 11th, don't get me wrong the food was O.K. but just o.k., something was off. The service was not your usual, welcome home kind of feel. We where a little late going in around 7:30 but it felt like we want to close. Which is strange for this place, but even the food... More

Took my daughter and her roomate for supper. They ordered perogies, lambchops, I had the Spanokopita and Ty----paka Combo. All was excellent as were the Mimosa's and Daiquiri. Great menu- took us a bit to narrow downo our selection. Staff was friendly and wait time was minimal. Definately recommend !

Love the breakfast selections, much better if you can add an option for the scramble eggs. Some other buffet they have an omelette. Washroom is not accessible for everyone because its upstairs.

Why is it whenever I search 'vegan friendly Halifax' on google this place comes up not once but twice in the top 5 hits...no matter whose computer I use...anyway all they seem to have for me is felafel...which was average in quality...that is average in a city of mediocre felafels...and they way over charge for it

Ate supper here while in the city for work. Lots of choices, Food was fresh, portions were large. Restaurant has a parking lot which is an added bonus. We split an appetizer between two and each had a main course. Great option instead of heading downtown.

This is a great place to eat, but as other commenters have pointed out it can get busy at peak times, with increases in noise and wait times, but crowds mean a lot of people like the food. I've tried several dishes and liked them all. Splurge on desert.

Always a great choice for family celebrations. Greek foods are always a great choice, but even the pickiest eaters can find a satisfying meal. Small portions are available, but why not take a full meal and pack the leftover! Our small group able to get privacy we sought. Great Service! Our server was very friendly and efficient!
