Well where do I start. My sister booked this venue for her hen night after reading some of the reviews on here. How misleading was they. When we arrived here it was so disorganised. The bar ( if that's what you can call it) looked shabby and dirty. The woman behind the bar didn't crack her face all night except... More

Whenever we go to Birmingham, the Athena is top of our list of places for dinner. Two things we love about Greece, are it's people and it's gastronomy, here in Birmingham it was perfect. We had not been there for twelve months and yet the owner remembered us. Makes you feel special, and of course the food was delicious. Thank... More

I have to say when we arrived we were sat down straight away and attended too! They allowed us to chose from two menus personally the 17 quid is a great one to pick! And ordered within 5 mins. Straight away we were given a huge bowl of salad and loads of flat bread this is included with the deal... More

Went here on a Friday night in the midst of Christmas party season. Had the set mezze menu with 20 dishes. All good and very enjoyable. Great service and made to feel very welcome to give a great experience overall. Was bit chilly inside as another reviewer has said!

Last minute decision to try this on a Friday night wanting just a small selection of Mezes. Disappointed to find option 1 of 31 meze dishes or option 2 a starter followed by main course. Atmosphere was good- its Christmas party time and the staff were helpful and friendly. On the downside it took over 30 minutes to get and... More

Food very good but I felt pressured into having the mezze which was a different price to the menu. Also a service charge was on the bill which I don't like. The restaurant was cold. At around ten, the music was turned up very loud to create an atmosphere despite only six people being there! . I have been several... More

We was walking past on a Wednesday evening ,we were a group of 10 people. I have to say this has to be the best greek restaurant in Birmingham ! We looked at the menu and it looked great so decided to give it a try. Wow! Didn't expect so much food,it was all freshly cooked and arrived very hot!... More
