Have been to this restaurant several times and the food and service is always very good. Stiffado good and Moussaka and the chef always makes an effort with 'decorating' the dish.

We are regulars to El Gouna and this is our go-to restaurant every time. Guaranteed good service and great food. No matter what you choose from the menu - pizza, grilled meats, seafood - we've never had a bad meal here. A must try if you are visiting El Gouna for the first time.

A great location at the quieter end of downtown El Gouna, tables outside on the covered veranda or inside the main restaurant, nice attentive staff, good selection of greek food on the menu. Prices are about average for the area and the food was beautifully cooked. I would certainly recommend Athena to anybody visiting the area.

Amazing food! Good value for money. Staff very pleasant. Waiter Benjamin always very friendly. This is our 4th visit in as many years to this restaurant and enjoyed by us and the children. When we stay in El Gouna for 2 weeks we visit this restaurant at least 3 times.
