Needs a Reno. Food good

This is the place that you would go for a quick meal. I believe that it needs a renovation. There are some walls with exposed plywood. If you are just looking for a quick good meal for good value you can go here but it's not the greatest atmosphere

The loukoumades (crispy fried dough balls soaked in honey and drizzled with cinnamon) were out of this world. My vanilla latte was awful. When I questioned the girl who made it, she assured me there was vanilla in it but it didn't taste like it at all. The restaurant was so busy there was no place to sit but that's... More

With so many restaurants out there it's hard to find a unique restaurant experience. Unless you've been lucky enough to Greece before, Athens is a truly unique experience, and we just love introducing our friends to it.

Having grown up in Chicago and lived in New York for 8 years before moving to Toronto a year and a half ago, my wife and I have been searching for the type of excellent, authentic Greek food to which we are accustomed. We had only found good Greek food in Toronto until this restaurant - Athens deserves the rating... More

The best Greek restaurant located in Greek Town of Toronto. The restaurant gives you a chance to feel the real Greek soul in Canada. The grilled pork is my favorite... However, you can taste the other Greek dishes also.

I love Greek food and have tried every restaurant on the Danforth. Athens Restaurant had great chewy souvlaki. The tzaziki was a little salty and runny but still tasy.

We just had dinner at Athens. It was our first visit, and will not be our last! A family-owned and operated establishment. Very unassuming, but it is clear that it is a regular spot for the locals. As we told the owner, it feels as though you are having dinner at a friend's home. Great quality food and friendly and... More

This is the best Greek restaurant outside of Greece. If you have the opportunity to eat here don't miss it. We live an hour away so we sometimes make an overnight trip into the city just to come here. We've been six times now and haven't ordered from the menu yet. We've gone with the specials each time and have... More

I was taken here by some friends while visiting Toronto. It's a regular haunt if theirs and was keen to see how it stacked up to their reviews. This is no chain restaurant and it ain't real flash inside, BUT it all adds to the authenticity. Food was amazing, wine terrific and George the owner and his staff all super... More
