This is the best Greek restaurant I've ever been to.

The warm whipped feta is amazing. We've been a few times and this is a resturaunt we plan on visiting everytime we come to Winston-Salem.

I stopped by Athena Greek Taverna for lunch recently, and came away impressed. The menu is what you would find in most authentic Greek diners. I had the gyro plate, and was thrilled with the flavor of the meat. The rice on the side was a perfect complement. Finished it off with a piece of Baklava to-go, which was fabulous!... More

I really like this place. It's a good place to meet friends or to take family. The food is fresh and good; the wait staff is usually friendly and efficient; it's clean; they play Greek music, but not too loud. I'm not fond of the mirrors covering one wall, though. I guess the mirrors are supposed to make the place... More

If you are not used to heavy spices and strong seasoning this might not be the correct choice for you. Small place but enjoyable for a group of 3-4, recommended for dinner with a casual intention, family, couples or friends. Just appetizers and dessert will make your night unless you are quite hungry since the portions are considerable.

My partner and I ate here again and it was as good as ever. I had my favorite spanikopita which is a VERY generous portion for an appetizer, with crisp crust and lots of spinach. A bit tangy. My partner had the lamb chops and said they were the best he had had in years. He is hard to please,... More

If you like greek food, this is the place for you. If you don't like greek food or have never tried it, I would not recommend this. The menu is hard to pronounce, but the service is excellent, and the restaurant was very clean.

Nice, bright, clean restaurant on Stratford Road. I have been there three times now. The wait staff is very nice and helpful. The food has always been very good. Nice size portions. Love the Gyros and roasted potatoes. The desserts are excellent. Usually they offer one or two specials for lunch. The menu has non Greek food also.

Good service, food, wines, nice price, and relaxed atmosphere. I went with a group of friends which is the perfect way to enjoy this restaurant. I really think if I had gone expecting something more than a laughing, conversation, and stuffing my face experience I would have a slightly differing opinion; HOWEVER, it was the perfect place for a group...
