Tzatziki!

Pretty good food, good portion size. Tzatziki was very good. Aris Greek lager was okay. Restaurant was not busy but server seemed rushed for some reason. Not the best in St Augustine but worth a try!

Words can't proper describe the level of greatness that just entered my body. For real, I don't think that I will ever be the same after this meal. It's like they found a unicorn perched atop Mount Olympus and used its meat to make the best Gyro I've ever had. I'm pretty sure the pita was made of gold. GOLD.... More

OMG. Haven't had such a great authentic Greek meal since I was in Athens back in 1987. The flavor is superb and so was our waiter. We will return.

My wife and I enjoy Greek food, but our experience here was the worst. We ordered the lamb kebobs, which were so tough and fatty, we couldn't even cut it. Came with greasy, salty, lemon potatoes, peppers, tomatoes. The moussaka tasted like it belonged in a high school cafeteria. No bread served with the meal, either.

Location is great and was close to the square. The food was okay. I've tasted much better Greek food so I don't know what all the rave is. The service was poor in my opinion. Our server never checked on us and at one point we were without water until until we were able to wave her down. Mediocre at... More

We have been here many times over the years and Athena never lets us down. We love Greek food and have a hard time finding good Greek food...Athena will deliver the goods!!! It's located right on the square so it's easy to get to if you ate staying in the old city. Opa!!!!

Wife and I were looking for a local Greek restaurant for dinner. Ordered the saganaki for$ 9:00. While it tasted ok it was the thinnest/smallest portion I had ever seen. Dinner, ordered lemon chicken soup. Was very thick and pasty no flavor. Tasted like cooked flour Entree, had the featured sliced leg of lamb. Dish looked great. Very tough and... More

My family and I had breakfast at Athena's recently and I am reminded again of how great it is. Really love the Greek omlet, and my teens and grown daughter had great meals as well. Will go again.

Horrible service, food and atmosphere! It was just bad! We had them take the roasted lamb off our invoice because it was so bad! We will not be back!

8 adults and 15-month old twins. Service was great and food was delicious. I had the Greek omelet with grits and a biscuit. A lot of food for the price. Very tasty.
