We have eaten at they restaurant every time we visit St. Augustine and have never been disappointed. The food is authentically Greek. The prices are reasonable and the service excellent. The interior has painted scenes of Greece on the walls with an arched ceiling of blue. There always seems to be a lot of Greek persons dining there which is... More

We were there for dinner and certainly ate well. Large portions, good seasoning, and meats were well done. My husband and I shared a Greek salad and the stuffed grape leaves as an appetizer. We both had gyros as an entree. Very well marinated lamb. Service was very, very slow. It took the waiter over 5 minutes to come and... More

I decided to head downtown for an early New Year's Eve Dinner and was sorry I didn't just run into Winn Dixie and grab a frozen pizza! After looking around at several new spots I figured I would return to a place that was once one of my favorite spots. I know they were closed for a while after Hurricane... More

It had been over a year since we last eaten here and it was as good or better than we remembered.. Wonderful Greek food super service and reasonable prices. Location makes easy access in central St Augustine, even though parking sometimes can be a challenge (metered street parking before 5:00 PM). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

My husband and I ate breakfast at Athena on a Sunday morning on the advice of our hotel. The restaurant was 1/3 full so we were seated right away. I had the feta and cheese omelette with home fries and biscuit. The omelette was large and tasted good but I would have liked a little less spinach and a little... More

My husband and I ate there for dinner. My mousakka was still frozen in the middle. The owner/manager(I'm not sure of her position) took it back to be reheated. Our waitress indicated my meal would be comped. When she brought it back, it was a full serving, but it was still cold in the middle. I ate around the edges,... More

It was great to find a place that was open early for breakfast since we are early risers. I had a lovely spinach omelet. The food was really good. And it appeared to be a great 'meeting place' for some locals.

When we are in st. Augustine, we always go to Athena for breakfast. Have not eaten any other meals there than breakfast. The food is very good and you don't leave hungry. The service is friendly and efficient. Located very close to the cathedral. Would highly recommend. Much better and more reasonable than the hotels restaurants.

Thank Steven K
