A little stop on the Food and Wine Tour - authentic Greek food

We had a small snack and (~meh!~) Greek wine on this stop on the Food and Wine tour in St. Augustine. We were given flaming cheese (YUM!) and a small serving of traditional gyro with tzatziki sauce....which I gobbled. Recommended for food, from a limited exposure to the menu. Seems like you... read more

I am a local artisian who sales items in the market in the downtown plaza of St. Augustine. I often recommend the Athena Resturant because I go to the sister resturant, "Georgie's Dinner" and I always have a pleasant experience there. Today I went to the website to review the menu of the Athena Resturant and place an order, to... More

This is right on the edge of St. Augustine's prime tourist district, so, frankly, we didn't have great expectations. But we love Greek so we decided to give it a shot. The food, service, and atmosphere were fabulous. Authentic Greek. Yummy, yummy Greek. Everything was well prepared. Portions were ample. Lots and lots and lots to choose from (including a... More

My husband and I stopped in for lunch today. I had the lamb gyro and my husband had the beef souvlaki. Both were very good. The gyro could've had more lamb in it, but the tzatziki sauce was good. They only have Pepsi products, which disappointed my husband. The baklava cheesecake looked amazing but we were too full for dessert.... More

Typical Greek food. Was prepared nicely, had a great soup to start. Can do with some changes to the interior though. It is not very inviting. Service was ok but could be a bit more friendly.

We are eating there every time we are visiting the town. Athena has good location in the middle of the old town. Yesterday we have been there for diner. We had greek salad with spinach pie. It was just heaven in the mouth, so yummy. We also tried delicious bakalava cheesecake for the desert. It is really worth tasting. Today's... More

We ate here for lunch on our last visit to St. Augustine. The lemon chicken and rice soup, and the pastitsio were amazing! Nice, quiet place to relax and enjoy lunch or dinner after exploring St. Augustine.

Excellent local place in an ideal setting in the heart of St Augustine on the Square. Our party of three had three different meals. All were excellent. Service very good. Moderately priced and worth it. Would return without hesitation.

Athena's was an easy walk from our B & B on the Bay. There is a very pleasant greeter out front who will show you a menu and answer any questions. Athena's is fairly small, very clean, and has a family charm to it. Our food was absolutely delicious. We love Greek food, don't have anywhere to get it at... More
