This location was so easy we stopped in for a casual Greek meal. The lady on the street could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Delicious Greek food!

I couldn't help myself!!! I ordered a second gyro!!!! Great Greek wine and beer! I got to say, very nice place! Quiet until they turn up the music next door. "Tempo" ought to give their customers a break on their ear drums. I do plan to visit. We will see if it is just the old walls or if they... More

Had the lamb shanks, Greek pasta with a touch of cinnamon and the wife had the Greek salad....both GREAT. Try the Greek custard dessert; can't even pronounce the name phonetically. Best coffee in town. We eat here when in town, always excellent and so is the service.

Always look for a Greek restuarant wherever we travel, not disappointed this time. We have probably been to Greece more times than any of the staff but it was still authentic, great meal and good value.

We had the fried cheese, they light the cheese in front of you - cool and very good. We have the gyro, very fresh and Tzatziki sauce was excellent. Friendly and warm welcome when you sit down. This was a stop on our St. Augustine History, Walking and Food tour. So much fun finding new places.

The Athena was just as wonderful as we remembered. We were extremely happy to see them still in business. It had been a long time since we had been able to get back there. The meal was just as fantastic as we expected. The fried calamari was cooked to perfection. My 14 year old ate most of it. We were... More

While traveling to Orlando with my family, we stop sleeping in St-Augustine and we had breakfast at this restaurant. The breakfast wasn't good and it was really expensive. I've spent $44 for a breakfast for 4 people. The coffee wasn't included in the breakfast and it was at $2.50. The orange juice for the kids was awful (too much sugar... More

The spinach pie, stuffed grape leaves, olives and hummus are all simple and delicious. The only restaurant we visited twice in our 5 days here. If you enjoy this type of food this place is worth the visit and the prices are very reasonable. The service was good and fun!

We always stop in at "the Greek Place" when we're in St. Augustine. While it's been a couple of years since our last visit, the food seemed better and really enjoyed our server. We started with the Saganaki, which was excellent and then had the gyros. There was so much lamb we could hardly finish. Great prices, food and service.... More
