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

They have an excellent selection of Greek food on the menu, as well as Canadian items. I've eaten here several times and never had a bad meal. I recommend the pastitio and souvlaki. Save room for dessert as they do have some nice choices. They also have a kid's menu and breakfast menu. Service has always been friendly and for... More

3 of us stopped by almost 9:00pm. Place was open and we were immediately seated. Waiter was excellent. Food was served in a timely manner and the food was very good. Family Restaurant.

If you are looking for a great breakfast spot be sure to check out Athens Restaurant on Quinpool Road. The Standard Breakfast is $6.99 and comes with two eggs, your choice of a variety of different items (bacon, ham, sausage, perogies, etc), potatoes, toast and tea/coffee. Not bad for $10 with tax and tip!

What a rip off!!! The meal I had was way over priced for the quantity of food and for the quality of the meal, and that was coupled with mediocre service! I ordered the double lamb souvlaki platter and you would think it would be right in the wheel house of a Greek restaurant. Well, apparently not for this one.... More

It was a Sarurday night so reserved a table to celebrate our sons 18th Birthday. Unnecessary though as the place was half empty.Thought the establishment might have said something to him when we seated about his birthday but that is no matter. Food was slow coming but if freshly prepared and well cooked etc. that can be forgiven, however it... More
