Fun Diversion and Buy Their Oil

Enjoy stopping here for lunch. The Gyros were great lunch fare and the stuffed grape Leaves were a nice starter. While not elegant it was Wholesome Greek fare. Would Recommend bringing home a few bottles of their olive oil. It is wonderful.

most of my family got gyros and said they were very good, i got a bowl of surprisingly outstanding spaghetti! the interior is nothing special, mostly white, a minimalistic Mediterranean feel that includes some admittedly cheesy wall paintings of greek landscapes. Salads were fresh, servers and employees very kind and helpful, got seated and served very quickly, location is perfect,... More

A couple of places couldn't seat us immediately so my wife and I kept walking and happened upon the Athena. We reviewed the menu posted outside and decided to give it a try. The warmth of the restaurant on this cold blustery day was appreciated. My wife continued to warm up with hot tea and a cup of Lemon Chicken... More

My Gf and I came here for a dinner, we were craving greek food & decided to come here. The food was great, I got myself a gyro & it was great. The way the food was plated made it a little bit difficult to eat since it was SO MUCH FOOD on the plate. However, the food was really... More

Many of St Augustine's restaurants are quite pricey. This one, right on the Plaza, is well-located and serves good, solid, homestyle Greek cooking. Nothing flashy unless you order the flaming Saganaki. We enjoyed a delicious roast lamb (although just a little salty) and roast chicken. While most of our main course was piping hot, our vegetables were served barely lukewarm... More

I love Greek food and was excited to try this place. However after waiting 45 minutes for a table and taking a look at the menu, I was a little disappointed. There wasn't much variety and being a vegetarian I can usually rely on Greek food to have SOME options, like falafel or the pasta dishes that traditionally don't have... More

I'd been here before and remembered it being better. Saganaki was really good but stuck to the serving dish leaving all the good stuff behind. The Greek salad though, particularly the dressing wasn't good. Average looking lettuce mix, half a Roma tomato, maybe 2-3 kalamata olives, cucumber had seen better days. Really the issue is the dressing. Salad served with... More

Well we really like this place. There was a group of people outside when we left. We told the, this is the best in town. We meant it! I had the chicken wrap. It was great with the special sauce. My wife had some special Greek dish. She loved it! We did not ask for a gluten free menu but... More

Really nice dinner spot on the main square. We enjoyed some favorite Greek dishes we hadn't been able to find for some time. Very pleasant service and mellow atmosphere. Just what we were looking for!
