Ive eaten here twice, the first time everything was very much to my liking. Although the food took a little long. The service was great, and the taste was very good. However the second time it was not so nice, service was slow (different staff) multiple mistakes were made with the food, and it... read more

First, I can hardly believe the last reviews : sounds like it's not the same restaurant people are writing about....especially stating Emilios ( Kretan born) and chef Dimitris are not Greek....It's like pretending people of Texel are not Dutch! Since I have been going there many times, I think I can rate it O.K....The location,on the riverbank of the Amstel... More

The restaurant claimed to be Greek which is not. The owner is not Greek as his chef also, he speaks Greek but I am Greek so I understand easily what the issue is. Food is bad without any touch of Greek taste, furthermore it is very expensive. We spent a lot of money there for no reason, I would prefer... More

We went to Athene restaurante because I love Greek food. I should say that this restaurant is just "one more" there is nothing to highlight, well perhaps the waiter, she was very friendly and helpful. The food was ok but could be better, and please, never ask for a glas of house wine (red).

I and my guest had a good time in this restaurant. Persian-Greek pretty waiter was lovely, kind, helpful and active. She cares everything about you, food quality, service speed, cleanness, and even lighting! She also tries to make a happy atmosphere and warm environment. Owner is a happy typical Greek with special focus on customers. After a dish of salad... More

I have been to this restaurant for dinner during a week night in July. Despite the place was already really crowded, the owner was so nice to find us (a party of 5) an outside table. We ordered a variety of appetizers and main dishes, and everything looked and tasted great. The service could have been faster, but they had... More

The restaurant was empty, we were hungry and looking forward to a tasty meal as it was an expensive menu. We ordered a lamb dish, it was cold, with the sauce only tasting of tomato. My husband did not think it was even lamb we were eating. He complained and the dish was reheated. It was still cold in parts,... More

Read the only review here and am surprised. Just got back from a long weekend in Amsterdam and found Athene by accident on the riverbank of Amstel in a lovely posh and quite location/neighbourhood. Emilios (the owner) and his team are doing a great job, food was authentically Greek (and trust me, I should know been a Greek myself), lots... More
