We had breakfast. They took our order quickly, the food came out hot and as we ordered, the portion sizes were reasonable and properly prepared. Hard to ask for more when it comes to breakfast, we were anxious to get out and around. We ate breakfast elsewhere and would return here.

Went for an early dinner -- only one other table had customers at that time. Waitress was pleasant but sat down (at one of the tables) after she got our drinks and didn't come back for awhile. We both ordered Chicken Parmesan and it was fine but nothing special. When no bread came with the meal, we asked for some... More

I specifically revisited St. Augustine's just so I could eat at Athena's again. I love Greek food and they do not disappoint. The waitstaff are excellent, too.

Gyros were fantastic! So big I had to eat some with my fork before I could close the pita around it!

Initial impression. Nice Little Greek restaurant followed by a greeter/ hostess who didn't even know what a highchair was let alone communicate in the English or Greek language. The staff seemed to be unhappy they worked there so no customer satisfaction from this place. The Order Saganaki: Tasted OK but felt like we were chewing on rubber 2x Gyros with... More

I am Greek. I have eaten in many Greek restaurants. We make our own Greek food. Athena is pretty ordinary. There are the expected dishes- lemon soup, dolmades, saganaki, gyro, moussaka, pastitsio. there are the expected wall murals. The tables and chairs are appropriate and typical of a restaurant in Greece. The food is OK. Not exceptional, just OK. The... More

I had the pleasure of having Mousaka as my main course. It is basically impossible to get this dish near my house so I was thrilled. The quality was superb. The white rue layer was really thick and fluffy. My husband had the gyro and really liked it too.

My husband & I just happened to park near Athena Monday morning, when we were going to explore Old Town. I'd heard about the restaurant from my aunt, and we decided to give it a try. The atmosphere is nothing special, but our booth was comfortable after a morning of walking. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive. I ordered the... More

We decided to try this restaurant, as both of us enjoy greek food & wine. The "front of house" hostess was pleasant and welcoming, though we found the waiter was a tad surly & uncommunicative. We are fairly well-travelled, particularly in the Greek Islands, so are fairly adept at finding our way around a Greek menu / wine list -... More
