Lovely food at good prices. Once you have eaten they take you to the local shop to pick a few free gifts. Man in shop is lovely and full of knowledge.

We dined at the Athena on the last night of our holiday in El Gouna. The waiters greeted us with a shot of Ouzo. The food was really good. It may seem a little strange eating Greek in Egypt, but this place is well worth a visit. We had starters, mains and drinks for two. The bill was approx LE250... More

While walking in downtown area, we came across this nice restaurant. To start, they gave complimentary ouzo drink which I drank it all after adding cold water & ice (turns it white & makes it more tasty). As for the food, it was great & very tasty for everything we ordered (spicy cheese, garlic bread, meat with wine, meat casserole...etc.).... More

Always have the Lamb shank here (Kleftico) very tasty, meat falls off the bone, served with chips. Vegetable selection poor but there's enough meat that you don't go hungry. Worth a visit.

We have eaten at the Athena countless times over the last few years and it is definitely one of our favourites. Emil and his team including Ben, Thomas and all the other guys are always ready with a warm, friendly welcome and a complimentary Ouso. The menu covers most tastes, is reasonably priced and the service is prompt even when... More
