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.

Enjoyed a leisurely breakfast at this mid-town eatery. Quality food, service and ambience. Do not arrive expecting small portions! Coffee was particularly good.

Three of us went for lunch, one had perogies (a greek dish?) and dolmates. Both were very good. The other two had the lamb skewers with roasted potatoes and greek salad. Lamb was very tender and tasty, greek salad excellent and the roasted potatoes were good. A place to return too, and we have. Been eating there years, always good.

This long time Halifax restaurant provides delicious Greek fare along with traditional Canadian food. The menu is extensive and the staff are very efficient and courteous. You must make at least one visit if you are in the city. Well worth your dining time.

Halifax has become a pretty good foody town and the inordinate wait for a souvlaki wrap is simply unacceptable.

My friend and I ate twice at this restaurant. We especially liked the moussaka and spanakopita.. We ate there the first night of our trip around Nova Scotia and PEI and returned on our last night. Glad we did!

I have been going to the Athens for well over 20 years. I have only had one bad experience, and that was more with service than food. My most recent visit restored my faith in this Halifax staple. The friends I stay with are cautious eaters so the Athens is always a good bet, with a wide variety of options... More
