Nice place to eat

Attentive waiters making the service as nice as can be and the food was good as well although it took a little bit more than expected in terms of time to serve our food.

The staff were really nice and fast, we first went inside (indoor area) but the smell of the kitchen were very strong and unpleasant so we sat outdoor For me the food was very average and i didnt feel am eating greek food, nothing new however the portion size was very satisfying and the kids enjoyed their food

The Athena Greek Taverna is simply my favorite restaurant in El Gouna! ☺ The atmosphere is relaxed and cosy- no show off nor loud music. The place is really neat yet friendly. The food is always great, fresh and very tasty... everything is excellent, from simple salads to grilled fish, mix sea food, grilled chicken or koftas. I spent 3... More
