We had dinner last night at the Athena, and it was absolutely the best meal I have had in a long time. This is real Greek food! The hummus was perfect and the the lamb kabobs were cooked perfectly. I thought the food was priced fairly and the service was excellent. If you love Greek food, this is the place... More

Having eaten at the Athena over the years when attached to the Florida National Guard but gone for going on 5 years I stopped in for breakfast a week ago. Remodeling was very nice and inviting, open and light, but I came for the food. I was not disappointed nor was my friend. Cooked to perfection, coffee strong and delicious,... More

Wife had the lamb chop combo and it was excellent. I wasn't too hungry and just had a Gryo, which was also excellent. Good service, fair priced. The reason I gave it 4 stars was because they did not have any Hummus or the Greek Custard, (which were 2 of the 3 reasons I went). They have Wi-Fi so was... More

The start of dinner was not that great due to slow service. This improved during the meal. As for the food it was good for the price.

After walking through the tourist area looking for a nice place to have dinner we decided to try the Athena Restaurant. My husband ordered a starter (stuffed vine leaves, $6.50) and moussaka and a greek salad, $15.95). I ordered one of the "specials" Lamb Shank with orzo, $19.95. The starter came and it was ok, but before we were finished... More

Came here for breakfast and the food was delicious. My wife's Salmon Benedict was simply great and my mother in law's french toast was huge. My bacon, egg, cheese sandwich was just what I needed for the drive back. The staff was very helpful and answered all the questions we had about the food.

Ordered a very small lunch of Greek Salad & Pizza, but was very pleased with the food. Our server was quite helpful. Would return; would recommend.

My nieces and I went in at 8:30pm and were seated immediately by friendly staff. Our waiter was cheerful, helpful, attentive, and prompt. The food was quite delicious, and the atmosphere was relaxed and authentically Greek. A great stop for anyone visiting St. Augustine! A little more than I wanted to spend, but good.

We stopped here for lunch on Wed the 9th of July. They had a very good Caesar salad and it was a decent sized portion. A kids meal could have been split between two small childern quite easily. The Chicken and Lamb Gyros were half decent. Not the best I ever had but were prepared nicely and came hot. Our... More
