Best flavors in town, 6 very satisfied customers!

As should be expected, the best thing about this place is the food! Real homemade flavors and feel. All 6 main dishes of fish and meat were delicious. Deserts were not amazing, but were quite nice. Good espresso also, and a nice experience with the greek coffee. Service is adequate and not... read more

Highly recommendable greek restaurant. Excellent food and friendly staff. Informal interior that makes you feel at home. One of the oldest in Eindhoven and still there for a reason: as good as it gets.

One of those locations you just have to know about. This restaurant has some of the best Greek cuisine around. The meat is lean and grilled to perfection. Suggestion: 'Dolmadakia (appetizer) with Mykonos (main course)'.

Athene is nothing fancy, just a simple restaurant with good honest food. As long as you order the regular greek (meat) dishes you won't be dissapointed. Would not recommend the fish or vegetarian dishes.

This friendly restaurant serves generous portions of authentic Greek food. Maybe the flavours are a bit strong and not too subtle. Plenty of meat in the Athene special, but quantity rather than taste rules. Good place to go with a big appetite.

My boyfriend and I sat down on a busy Sat around 1pm. Turns out they did not serve anything but drinks and some very expensive tapas dishes at this time. Anything close to a proper meal was not available.

As Greek restaurants in the Netherlands go - this is pretty decent. Not the best prep of classic Greek dishes that you may have come to expect but still... Pretty much meat from the grill and some decent side dishes. Good appetizers. Small outside terrace. Charming interior - lovely greeting with a little glass of ouzo. Very very disappointing gyros...

Best Greek restaurant in town. The ambient could be better, but on a nice sunny day you can sit outside.
