Went here with family, I got a chicken pita wrap, my mother ordered a Gyro...both were fantastic. A delicious combination of flavors, cozy atmosphere, and friendly service.

We went for dinner a couple of weeks ago and absolutely loved it. Everything was cooked to perfection. Three of us shared the Chef's Special and took a sizable doggy bag home. The staff were warm and welcoming and took the time to explain what each dish was. Ambiance was comfortable and appeared authentic. Food preparation time was excellent and... More

What a gem!! I haven't been able to find a good Greek restaurant in a while and we were in the mood for some Greek food, so I looked them up online and called to see if they had Saginaki. The lady that answered the phone said that they did and we headed over to the restaurant. Angie greeted us... More

I have wanted to eat here for over 15 years. Driving by, from the outside, it always reminded me of the Greek diners I would often frequent back east. Gnashing on a bagel and a coffee, all I could afford back then. I think I avoided it out of fear of it not living up to my memories. When I... More

The atmosphere was very subdued, we were very comfortable and everyone was relaxed. The wait service was very attentive but not to the point of being annoying. When we were looking over... More

Great Greek atmosphere in Aurora CO. Breakfast menu has a lot of options, and the pancakes are great. Specials for breakfast are good and reasonably portioned. Price is in the moderate range, and the staff are very friendly, attentive and helpful. Nice family place to eat!

We recently tried back Athenian Restaurant...We used to go there few years ago and stopped, but then to decided it again. After the lovely dinner we regretted not going there all of these years.
