We arrived Friday night 9.00pm to a warm welcome, friendly staff and great food. the staff were very polite, service was quick and efficient without being pushy. The food was very fresh, the oyster superb. I tried the lamb shoulder and was not disappointed - awesome meal. To compliment the dish we had a pinot Noir from Victoria which was... More

We got there relatively late (9.30/10) on a Saturday night but staff was still quite happy to serve us and they served us well. The meals were very generous in proportions and of superb quality. We had some Greek meals in and outside of Greece and as far as we can judge the food is very original too. The wine... More

As always food was well cooked and service quick. As we were dining in a party of 6 and there were 2 parties of 20 at adjoining tables, our waiter kindly took our order first before these tables ordered. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and no one was able to finish their meal as the portions were so generous! Dessert... More

While staying at the Grace hotel in Sydney, we were looking for a place to eat nearby and stumbled onto the Athenian restaurant just around the corner. It was a Monday night so the place was fairly empty, something accentuated by the fact that the restaurant is huge. The wait-staff were friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and had... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant. We were quite late in arriving, around 9.15pm and the waiter was a bit flustered and rushed us throughout. We only ordered a main course as we felt we were a bit in the way, but we were very pleasantly surprised at the quality and the size of the meal. Both meals were very good... More

We arrived as a group direct from another function. Despite having a booking our number had grown - it was dealt with simply and good grace by the delightful staff who not once made us feel that we were 'difficult'. We decided on the banquet - terrific choice, fresh delicious food which kept coming, and coming, and coming. We were... More

This restaurant is great value for money. If you are having Greek food for the first time or simply can't decide what to have, get the banquet. It has a taste of everything including the lamb and you won't go hungry. It's similar fare to Diethanes in Pitt Street but better decor and nicer outlook. (The actual address is 11... More

As an sydney resident living abroad, one of the guaranteed places to eat when I am back home or what I call a "banker" is the Athenian. Whether it be with good friends, a team event or even a 1:1 dinner for work the Athenian is a great place to feel wholesome about food. Try the haloumi cheese and some... More
