Good Greek food

We dined there on a Monday night in early February. The lamb was delicious. The salad was fresh, with delicious Feta, and dressed with a very good-tasting olive oil (wish we'd bought some to take home). It was very good choice for dinner.

Authentic, delicious, reasonably priced. Must do baklava cheesecake! The lemon chicken rice soup was so fresh and tasty.

Food was ok, no big deal. We had lunch there a couple of weeks ago and the place was empty except for another table. If you're looking for friendly customer oriented type of place you won't find it there. Not even a meeting of the eyes from any of the wait staff, nor the usual welcome type of statement when...

We've only been here for breakfast, so that's all I can speak to. It's our favorite place when staying in St Augustine. The regular breakfast dishes are outstanding, coffee too -- what else is there? Good service, reasonable prices. And, the location is ideal, right on the main square near the church, opposite the bridge.

The lamb with the mint jelly dish was amazing! The vegetables were so fresh and the lamb was moist and tender. I can't wait to return to this restaurant to enjoy it again! :-)

Our local Greek restaurant back home closed last year so its been a while. On our St. Augustine vacation, we saw Athena, we were in the mood and gave it a try. We were not disappointed. Great food, great service, great price. Would go back again without a doubt.

Service people we're not that friendly. The food was pretty good, definitely the spiciest Gyro I've every had. Prices reflected as a touristy area.

I had a dish from their regular menu; it was chicken stuffed with spinach and feta and it was delicious. My husband had the lamb special and it was terrible, overcooked and rubbery.

We stoped for the second time to check out this place. The atmosphere is great and the food was fresh and delicious. The chicken and veal kebab were fantastic. Everything in order and clean. We will come back Athena.
