Description: Located in the heart of downtown Bay Street, Athena cafe offers the authentic greek cuisine with a Bahamian flare. Not only you can find the traditional greek favorites here but also Bahamian delicacies such as conch, snapper, grouper and lobster! We are a true, family operated business that want everyone to feel like family as soon as they enter. Have a choice to sit at our cosy bar, our air conditioned dining room or the lively verandah.

“It was a real treat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Our cruise stopped for a day in Nassau, come lunch time and we started looking for a good place to eat, we asked around and everybody suggested Athena cafe. They were not wrong, food was delicious, tasted like a Greek grandma was cooking in the kitchen, the service was fast, efficient and very friendly and prices are moderate.

Don't forget to visit the shop on the lower floor.

One thing i did not like much was the entrance to the restaurant, up few stairs, locked door then passing next to the kitchen, let this not deter you go for the best Greek food i have ever tasted.

“Excellent. Best meal in the last 10 days in the Bahamas.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

Delicious food, in an extremely clean restaurant, at reasonable price, service could not have been better. I usually do not write reviews, but today's lunch deserves one. Paulo.

“Good place for a birthday dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

The portions are very generous and delicious. The service is friendly and helpful. They even put a sparkler on my piece of baklava and sang to me.

“Greek with a Caribbean twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Easy to find from the cruise ship, and really good food, great service and friendly staff. The conch fritters were a great starter. We had the grouper gyro and the club sandwich. We split the sandwiches - and had way too much food. Next time we cruise, we will come again.
