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.

Paid a visit when we ideally wanted to go to Puddleducks ( English owned and typically closed!!) so we ended up at Athena -menu looked promising and food was plentiful, however, lacking taste and flavour of Greece. On the whole a satisfactory meal but nothing special - well priced though.

Everything had a good taste and staff were really friendly. Place was clean, set up on good grounds, downtown. Had a good sparkling local wine and all my friends were happy with the items they chose for dinner.

When a restaurant wants to serve greek dishes it should have a greek chef. The names of the dishes were greek but the tastes and spices were all oriental. so the only true greek thing about this resaurant was the cd with the greek songs playing. Very tasty though and clean.

We ate here 3 times during our holiday. We loved the food, everything we had was cooked really well and was hot and tasty. We couldn't fault it nor the service. We will definitely be back in August.
