Best roasted or baked lamb i think your ever find. Veggies that come with the lamb has the great taste of the lamb.If there's a downside the booths are as old as the restaurant and it can be to low. There are plenty of tables a must try!!!!!!!!

We have been visiting the Athens for decades. It always serves fine Greek dinners. It is in downtown Manchester opposite Veteran's Park. We enjoy lamb, common middle eastern fare. The barbequed lamb is delicious, there are several choices. Cabbage rolls are great, too." Meatballs with garnish" is my favorite. The garnish is a medley of vegetables, potatoes and endives to...

Athens Restaurant in Downtown Manchester is a great place to go when you are looking for something different from the usual. The lamb is excellent any way you have it prepared and the Pita is wonderful as well. Save room for dessert especially if you love Baklava. They are only a block away from the Verizon Wireless Arena and we... More

I have eaten at this restaurant many times over the years, mostly for lunch. The food has always been good, the service is friendly, the prices are reasonable, and the portions are generous. Their home made soups are the best!

I hadn't eaten here for several years and it is still good. Three of us had lunch there and were pleased with the Spankopita (which we all ordered). The portions were two large pieces each and half of each order was saved for another meal at home because the portions were so large.

I used to eat here frequently 30+ years ago,when I lived in Manchester. Went there for lunch (hadn't been in for about 18 years) and I was delighted to find the place hasn't changed a bit. Our server told us it is the same chef that has been cooking there since the place opened and I believe it as it... More

Here on a business trip with a friend, and a craving for Greek. Well-kept restaurant, the Athens was recommended another friend as being inexpensive. Food was OK, but nothing special. I had the spinach pie, and was told that it came with no other accompaniments. It was a huge portion, double the average. But I would've much preferred having half... More
