Very nice little Greek restaurant above a jewelry store. Food and price were excellent. Try the conch chowder.

From the moment we entered the well air-conditioned restaurant, we were greeted warmly by the staff. The food was delicious and Ana and our waiter, delightfully respectful. Thank you for a nice lunch. Our only regret is that we discovered Athena's towards the end of our trip.

I was unaware of the Greek influence on the island culture and the food. Athena's is a little hard to find as you have to go into a jewelry shop and up sone stairs but once you find it you have the nicest view of down town Nassau from their balcony seating. The food was very good but we tried... More

Just had the MOST expensive coconut ever after years of travel through all tropical areas of the planet. Our charming waiter offered fresh coconut water as a suggestion (it wasn't on the menu) and we thought it was a nice idea. Until the bill came. $24.50 for two coconuts. SERIOUSLY?!!!! For something that literally grows on trees, and costs $2... More

My husband and I have been going to this restaurant for the past 20 years. We are especially fond of the grilled octopus, which is fantastic. The chef is always willing to adjust ingredience to accommodate my dietary restrictions. This family-owned business is not to be missed. The brothers who own the restaurant are precious, with their continuing rounds of... More

The home made Greek dishes are lovely. It is run by a Greek family and has a lgreat atmosphere. Peter, the... More

My wife and I very much enjoyed our meal here (she was craving Greek/Mediterranean food), but honestly, $15 for tzaziki? Anyway, she had a delicious balsamic chicken dish, and my craving for a chicken gyro was adequately quenched. Very good food, good service, but be warned, they close very early, like 5 or 6.

Nestled nicely on corner location in the center of down town a quint walk through the family owned Jewelery store to get up stairs, you can dine in doors out outside where you can view the visitors and locals shopping or going about their daily routine one...

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.
