Good food

Ate dolmas kleftiko and moussaka. Although not perfect Greek was still a lovely meal. Quick Friendly service with a complimentary ouzo. Two starters, two mains, a sweet and four beers for under £30. Would go again.

We were walking by the Athena Greek Taverna and liked the items and prices on the posted menu plus the decor of the Taverna. We decided to have dinner and we were not disappointed.

Ate here twice during out two week stay. The food was nothing special but the place had a good ambiance. Complimentary ouzo when you arrive and service friendly and willing. Also one of the few restaurants that had any customers.

We tried the Greek restaurant for the first time (knowing that Greek, Lebanese, Turkish and Arabic food are very similar so Egyptians would do a good job of it). Nice premises, clean and well set out. The menu is quite simple, a mix of traditional Greek along with som more Arabic foods. We were welcomed with 4 glasses of ouzo,... More

Back in el gouna so have to visit one of our regular haunts. Food just as good, if not better than last year, seem to be a lot lighter on the salt, thankfully. Huge choice and extras not on the menu (vegetarian options ) Service as always impeccable and some new faces mixed with the old. Definitely recommended when visiting... More
