Good Greek Food

Nothing out of the ordinary here. You are going to get what you expect from a normal Greek restaurant. Lots of flavor and a good price. Give it a try!

The food was really good. I had the geek chicken plate and it was delicious. Overpriced though. Typical prices for that area. We were only 1 of two tables in the place that was occupied. They would do better business if they lowered the price and were a little friendlier. Not many smiles in the place.

Excellent food and service! Great variety of appetizers and main dishes. Nice environment. Went there my first night in saint Augustine and returned the following evening since the food was so great. Highly recommended.

We were sadly disappointed with the food at Athena's Cafe. We started with Saganaki, and should have finished at that. The saganaki was about 1/4 inch thick (compared with usually 1/2 to 3/4 inches in other restaurants.) It was like cardboard, hardly able to cut with a knife, and then a challenge to chew. It should have smooth, delicate cheese... More

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! :-)
