If you are not super into Greek food, or needing a special atmosphere... and you just want a big spacious place to eat, with lots of options and variety- then this place will please you. If you are looking for an authentic Greek restaurant with a Mediterranean vibe, then definitely go elsewhere. Food makes me feel like it was not... More

We have been coming here for years and always enjoy our dinner. Last time I had the lamb skewers and Greek salad . As usual it was really good. Nice size servings and it's a very comfortable restaurant.

Welcoming staff and delicious food. Dropped in at 5 on a Saturday. By 6, the place was packed! Hubby had Slovakia dinner and it was delicious, with large portions. I had the salmon special for 15.99. Delicious! It also included a fish chowder and rice pudding, or an upgrade to choice of cheesecake for 1.99. We shared the fresh cheesecake.... More

I found the food to be ok. Nothing great or out standing. I ordered the special pork wrapped in bacon and my husband ordered chicken and Greek salad. He hated his and we switched. My was better. Lol

The only reason why I'm giving 2 stars is because the waitress was polite! Food: I ordered the platter. Spanakopita very soggy. Couldn't eat it. Salad was old. Lamb was lukewarm. Rice had no taste. I wouldn't eat here again if food was free. Do yourself a favor, don't eat here. Don't waste your money.

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
