The food is very good and my kids love it too. The Party Packs are great for a family or get a few for a party.

Second time visiting this very simple but nice, clean place. It's like fast food prepared to order, served on plastic plates with simple seating indoors and out, with soft Greek music. The service was fast and friendly, the food nice and authentic (have spent many months in Greece) average portions and the food tasted very nice. Nothing to rave about,... More

Almost at the end of the block but worth the wait. In a town with a number of spots to eat, this is the only Greek restaurant on Main Street. It's clean, bright and has a wide menu of Greek specialties. Good choice for vegetarians and lamb lovers as well. The servings are large and the prices fair. Eat on... More

Athens West is not a taverna, but had authentic greek gyros and souvlaki and greek beer. Had gone to Athena West for lunch right after the LB marathon. Wasn't crowded and our orders were quick. Salad was good with enough helping of feta. The flavor of the souvlaki was mellow, not too strong. Will come back the next time I'm... More

Small Greek Food cafe in Old Town Seal Beach. Good location and parking lot. Food was very good. Got the Gyro platter and was very good and fresh. Would recommend this cafe to anyone who is looking for fast food style greek food. Can eat inside or in the covered outside area which is much larger than inside. Nice setting.... More

When visiting Seal Beach I always enjoy stopping at Athens West for a tasty Mediterranean dinner. The platters are full and the price is right. i especially like the kabobs, the greek salad, and their yummy tzatziki sauce. Their outdoor patio is comfortable and on a hot summer day, dining near the ocean is a great relief.

A fun, healthy menu with seating inside and outside in a sunny covered patio.Enjoy relaxed ordering at the counter. Located just a few blocked from the pier and not far from PCH. There's plenty of parking in the City... More

I enjoyed a falafel pita Greek style with fries and a Greek salad. In addition to being delish! the servings were crazy big and could have fed more than one person. Their tzatziki sauce was so good I was dipping my fries in it! The falafel had a bite to it...but it was so incredibly good. Everyone that was with... More
