Good food & service, but beware the "free gifts".

We ate here twice and found food and service to be pretty good, but at the end of our second visit we were presented with a 10% discount card for this, and other restaurants in the group. We were also asked to accompany one of the waiters across the road to "our bazaar to receive a special free... read more

We ate here twice over 10 days and were more than pleased with the quality of food and price. By far the best meal i had was the mixed grill, massive portions and very tasty. My wife had the mousakka on both times and loved it but couldnt eat it all as again the portions are very large. When we... More

Hello dear All, Me and my wife decided to try something new in el Gouna. I had no previous experience regarding the greek cuisine except fast food gyros. So we went to Athena Taverna with hope to try something good. Frankly speaking the food was very good much more than we expected. The service was good as well. Bon Appetit!

The appitizers were good specially the spicy oven chease , waiters did not offer us the Ouzo, but probably they suspected that we don't drink , anyway when we asked for... More

We've been coming here for four years now and the Athena is always our first night and last night choice of restaurant. This time we went one better and fitted an extra visit in the middle of our ten night stay. Had the meze twice, which, on both nights we failed to finish; the food just keeps coming. On our... More

This restaurant has a huge menu that defies the ability to store so many ingredients. The food is good and the price even better.
