I have been to a lot of Greek restaurants and festivals in my day in some of the largest Greek communities in the country and this unassuming establishment in Winston-Salem has some of the best food around. Robust, harmonious flavors. Braised lamb, grilled octopus, taramosalata....all excellent. Cheerful, efficient service, generous portions and great Retsina! Authentic Greek music playing tastefully in... More

Every time I eat at this restaurant, I am reminded of my visit to Greece. The food and service is fabulous! Make sure to check out the lemon potatoes and green beans as your side dish.

We had a great time with great food. For some reason this place falls off our radar but it is a really good place for dates. The specials don't rotate much but they're always a safe bet.

I have visited Athena Greek Taverna several times during the past few years, but returned recently only a few days ago. The food id still excellent, the best Greek food in Winston Salem by far, the atmosphere is outstanding especially if there is live music, and the service is superb. The Greek owners are both gracious hosts and wonderful warm... More

If you enjoy Greek food, this is a nice place to try. The wait staff was very friendly, and the meal we had was very good as well. Once again, trip Adviser steered us to a great place. We went in the afternoon for a late lunch, so there weren't many people there, but the food was just as hot... More

Athena is a great family restaurant for lunch or dinner. It is not a fine dine establishment. If you are looking for good Greek food, including just a gyro or salad, this is the place. They give you very generous homemade portions at a very fair price. Their pasticcio & spanakopita are excellent. A family of four can walk in... More

If you like Greek food or if you have never had Greek food, this is the place. The food is so good you will keep eating will past satiation and you can because the servings are enormous. I went for a Saturday lunch with 7 of my sisters. We almost all had something different from everyone else and compared notes... More

We have been here before and the food has always been great. This time we went for dinner and entertainment. On Tuesday night they have live Greek music. The duo was wonderful and we enjoyed the show as much as the food. If you want authentic Greek food, this is the place to go; and if you like Greek music,... More
