Good food. A lot of gravy and rice and potatoes come together. Greek salad was wonderful. Basic decor. The waiter was personable and enjoyed a conversation with us.

Back in Halifax for a visit I returned to The Athens where I was a frequent diner some years ago. It has been renovated since I was last there, but what was most apparent was how quiet it was. Getting a table in the past usually involved a long wait. By the time I left it was starting to get... More

Athens has been around for many years and is a reliable spot for consistent service and food. Their meals aren't fancy but you get large portions that are filling and flavourful. The service is excellent and friendly and the prices are reasonable. The star of the meal for me is always the rice pudding for dessert - it alone is... More

Wonderful chicken souvlaki dinner! It came with two skewers of chicken, roasted potato, rice, pita bread, tzatziki dip and a Greek salad. Delicious!

On just about every weekend visit to Halifax we stop here for breakfast on the way out of the city on Sunday mornings. Always good food and service.

We had the moussaka and lamb skewer with a tsatziki dip and spanakopita, the tsatziki was excellent, the spanakopita was alright a little too much mint. Lamb was very tender and flavorful! So was the moussaka! Our... More

We had an informal business lunch at Athens on a Friday. The service was superb and the food was exceptional. Would highly recommend Athens restaurant for any occasion.
