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

This restaurant has been around for many years but somehow I had never eaten there. We decided to give it a try after noticing their sign advertised breakfast. We stopped-in for breakfast on a Saturday morning. It is handy to have free parking right next door. We were seated at a booth which was comfortable and somewhat private. Service was... More

My friend was visiting from Alberta and when she lived here we would usually eat at the Athens at least once a week when it was downtown. When she comes to visit we still have at least one lunch or dinner while she's here. We were there last week and had the Clubhouse sandwich. It tasted like the mayo was... More

We dined at this restaurant recently. Our favorite dishes involve fish so we ordered the pan fried haddock special. It included a very good Greek and dessert. The fish was excellent, with accompanying potatoes and vegetables. There were two huge fillets which were cooked to perfection. Possibly the best pan fried haddock we have eaten on both North American coasts.... More

This restaurant has been in business for a long time and the food is obviously the reason. It is very casual and family friendly. The decor is about 25 years old, but it suits the place. A very homey atmosphere and friendly service adds up to a pleasant experience. The food is very good but if you have the hummus... More
