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

Went to an early dinner with family...no one was in the restaurant at 5:30...should have been the 1st sign. Ordered the Greek special. The salad that came with the entree was on the plate with the other hot items. Naturally this caused the salad to wilt. Not to mention the Greek dressing was just plain. Hardly any flavor. The dish... More

On a hot evening we love their Greek salad & rolls for a meal. The salad is served with dolmathes, meatless stuffed grape leaves. Can't get any better than their Greek style creamy rice pudding. In cooler weather we splurge on all their specialties from Greek pizza to Saganaki to Spinach pies. Good staff, lots of seating & not too... More

This is the best Greek food that St. Augustine has to offer. Place is very small but authentic. Menu has few authentic Greek dishes. I had lamb and pork chop plater, which was very tasty but rather small. Few bites of lamb with a decent size pork chop on the bed of lettuce. Tasty but nothing to write home about.... More

We stumbled upon Athenas while searching for a breakfast spot. Definitely didn't expect a Greek restaurant to impress us with breakfast but it did just that! Our server was so friendly and attentive. My husband had fried eggs over medium and they were perfect! My waffle was crispy on the outside, tender inside and just melted in my mouth, my... More

I had a salad with grilled chicken, but the strips of chicken were tough and dry. My wife liked the chicken lemon soup, but I thought it was pretty mediocre. She especially liked the dolmas.

The food was pretty decent and came out in a timely manner. Getting the order in took a few minutes more than I would have liked but they were also busy. I would give it another shot next time.

Ate lunch at the restaurant as part of a food/ wine tour. Cute little whole in the wall place. Decent saganaki (although wayyyy saltier than you will find in Greece), good gyros. I tend to crave Greek food, so will probably go again when I visit St. Augustine in the future.

Our family comes to St Augustine every year for vacation, and this is always one of our family gathering sites. We all just love the food, and its atmosphere. Decent prices too.
