Five stars due to service and price. Perhaps fewer based on food alone (definitely four stars) and ambience (again four stars). Imagine, in Berlin, in 2017, a decent meal of Greek food (horitatiki salads to start, platter of meat, sides of beans and vegetables), two...More

Was at a conference at the Tempelhof arena and following a search for restaurants close by myself and a friend went here. Really good food, amazing value and very friendly service. Would definitely go back again next time I'm in Berlin.

Very highly reviewed restaurant on Tripadvisor, and being a fan of the Greek cuisine I decided to give Taverna Athene a try. It looks Greek, a bit on the cheap side, and the staff was nice. It quickly filled up while I was there so...More

This was my local restaurant when stayed in Kreuzberg. The owners are lovely, food is delicious and Ouzo even better. The price isn't bad at all. Miss this place, definitely coming back as soon as possible! Xx

As regular visitors to Greece and Cyprus for over 25 years we tend not to eat at Greek restaurants in other countries but the reviews for this one somehow dragged us to it. We weren't disappointed at all, it feels Greek as soon as you...More

Not one of those Greek restaurants that are more Yugoslavirn/Balkan style but a place with real tradition Greek dishes, complemented with traditional Greek hospitality. Definitely a good recommendation if you look for good traditional Greek dishes at a reasonable price range

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighborhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s
and 60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and 90s,
rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a
carefree life here. An old hospital even became a
hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today
