The food was over price, too little food for way too much money. We ate lunch there, no drinks and paid about $80. for lunch. We were still hungry an hour later.. I will not recommend this place

The only Greek Taverna in Nassau. The food is not particularly good and the prices are much too high for the quality and quantity of food served.

We ate lunch here and had two bottles of water and two orders of chicken gyros. The food was good but lunch for two with water was 43.00. They have a restroom in the back behind the bar.

For $15/usd you get one pork skewer with a few fries. The pork slovaki was salty but tasty. I left hungry and ate again upon returning to the ship. I would not recommend eating here.

Don't miss the lamb burger like I did... My husband had it and one bite made me wish I'd listened to him. Don't get me wrong, my chicken gyro was fabulous too! The Greek salad was the perfect accompaniment. Great food, great service, great location! Sat outside overlooking the main street - fun!

I'm so confused why this place is so highly rated. Going to give them 3 stars as I got takeaway and am hoping something really went wrong in the 20 minutes that it sat but my food barely deserved a 2. The prices are insane, even for Nassau, but I'd have no problem paying it if the food was up... More

I love Greek food and I am surprised to say that one of the best Greek restaurants I've been to in recent years is in the Bahamas. The food was excellent and the service was great. The owner is a friendly and charming guy. The portion sizes are good and I only wish I could eat more because everything on... More

Their specialty is Greek as you could imagine. Their food was great and also the waiter was friendly as anything we required was either explained or given. I would recommend the gyro (anyone) or the mousaka and as a dessert obviously the baklava which was perfect with the ice cream

This restaurant is downtown on the second floor of a jewelry shop with the same owner. It has a lot of authentic Greek food as well as other local fare. If you eat in the restaurant, they'll give you a discount for the jewelry. The owner, who has been there for years, is the most pleasant and accommodating fellow you... More

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.
