Walked past the restaurant on the Saturday night, it was rocking full of hen parties. After discussion on the Sunday decided to ring and book a table for that night. Different atmosphere from the Saturday night, quiet and relaxing and the owner was very attentive and kept us amused with tales of his life. The food came fast and furious... More

We recently celebrated my sisters 40th birthday at Athens and had a lovely evening. The food was served quickly and the entertainment was a lot of fun. Would recommended and plan to return again for my mums 70th birthday. Great family fun

It's a saturday hen-night sort of place. Don't go there to soak up a bit of Greek culture but do go there to have a great night out with a group of friends. Most people won't remember what the food tasted like so there's no point in producing Michelin star food. They will remember the atmosphere and a great night... More

Been here twice with groups. As the other reviews say. Poor quality and fairly tasteless food. Not sure of what deal had been organised as we had wine on the table which was cheap plonk. The place was freezing and is in pretty poor shape. The toilets are disgusting and should be condemned. Door broken and dont close. Staff were... More

I was there last weekend for a friends hen do. We had so much fun. The food was yummy and plentiful, the staff were attentive and extremely patient (we were a table of screechy ladies) and the entertainment was both professional and highly comical - a mix of very professional belly dancing and some rather unusual, apparently traditional floor banging,...

I don't normally write negative reviews but had to write something after my last experience here. It's my fourth time at Athens. All my previous visits have been with groups (works meals or singing groups). Athens offers good value party deals. However, my experiences were consistent, terrible. I love greek food, and Greek culture (especially Greek Cypriot). They are a... More

Sad to say I would not recommend Athens. We visited as a group of 12 friends wanting a lovely greek meal and a fun night out. What we got was: 1) A FREEZING cold restaurant (which didn't warm up the whole time we were in there) 2) Dilapidated (and again freezing!) toilets (the one toilet door didn't even close!) 3)... More

Had an awesome night at Athens. Very fun atmosphere, delicious food and the friendliest waiting staff ever. Thank you for a great time. Wouldn't recommend to couples, but for parties and hen do's it's a must.
