We arrived Ghent very late and been walking around and tried to find place where we can eat. We just look on TripAdvisor and then a lot of places were shut, and we spot this Greek restaurant. Waters invited us and were really friendly and so got a seat for four of us. We got some beers, but they having... More

First of all, this feels like an authentic Greek restaurant and while I'm not saying only the Greeks know how to cook Greek food, let's assume they probably have a better shot at it. The music was Greek too, and that helps to set the atmosphere. The "KAA Gent" supporter gear on a greek statue did not on the other... More

Best option for a late dinner in Gent. Service is professional but also friendly and the Zalm was an excellent suggestion.

We went yesterday to Athene Gent for 2 moessakas ( take away ) and they put it in a empty box of Frehona products ( Lidl ) so pity they don't make their own sauce

We have our offices next door and enjoy lunch here at least once a week. With a choice out of 15 lunches, you could eat here every day and never get bored of the kitchen! Restaurant Athene serves honest and tasty dishes, just like you would get them in Greece. The restaurant is owned and managed by a Greek family.... More

Friendly staff, good food, nice place, not too expensive. This is not haut cuisine, they serve the more regular Greek kitchen, but they do it well. I especially like the 'Plateau du chef', it's just different sorts of grilled meat, with a salad, potatoes, rice, but just very nice in all its simplicity.

My husband ordered cheese croquettes with salad. I order Salad Paysanne. Here at 1:30 PM for lunch with a tour bus passing through town. The menu is in Greek, French and Dutch, but our waiter helped with English explanation. We were very pleased with our choices. Friendly wait staff. Prompt service. Helpful.

Came here with my husbands cousins after seeing a picture of lamb chops that one of them had posted! Nice atmosphere although a little noisy. As for the food it was wonderful!! We started with grilled shrimp that was accompanied by a shredded carrot and lettuce salad. That was followed with delicious lamb chops with the same salad. The chops... More
