“Excellent, tasty pizzas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

The pizzas were very good on my last visit. Now, they definitely have more topping & flavour pushing them up to the excellent category.
Well worth a try is their other dishes; pasta and sandwiches. Incredible value and extremely tasty.
Very clean place and a charming outside seating area (out of the back of the restaurant)
Lovely staff who are attentive but yet not overwhelming or sleazy. No touts irritating the life out of you; which says a lot since this place is off the main drag and has been open for a couple of years now.
Another big plus point is that they are consistent. Too many restaurants here have variable quality depending on which chef is here and if they can be bothered to cook said dish how it was yesterday. Athanor stands out from the crowd here; perfect every time.

“Good value pizza, great coffee, nice setting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

We visited this place, having found it on trip advisor. It is situated in a back street; turn left off the beachfront road at Lighthouse.Where that little street opens ouit into a small square of shops (about 30 mtr walk from the main road!), look to your right and you will see the Pizza sign. Agreta little place to sit outside in a cool, clean back yard and have coffee. Food is limited to pizza and pasta only, but the most expensive pizza you can buy is only LE44. Pizzas are freshly made. Iwas slightly disappointed that my Seafood pizza was made using frozen pizza, although this seemed to be the case elsewhere, to. Should have had the tuna! But it was tasty all the same. Garlic bread was good too, and the espressos and iced coffees went down well.

Thank you so much for your lovely review and the directions you give to make sure other customers find the place!!!!!! We just have to say that the Seafood Pizza is not frozen (none of the pizzas are!!!). They are all in an Italian stove oven the instant the order is placed. Perhaps you meant that the shrimps on it were frozen (unfortunately, after the Revolution and other political problems in the country, there aren't enough customers to keep fresh shrimps in the fridge). Hope you understand this! Next time you come, you can ask the staff if it is possible to have fresh seafood as a topping, but you can expect the price to change greatly... Nothing we can do about that!. We are so happy you liked the place though! Hope you have you there again!!!
