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.

We stopped there for lunch on New Year's Day while walking in the historic St. Augustine. We love Greek food and high expectations...we were not disappointed. I ordered a Gyro. It was approximately $10 but worth every penny. The lamb was cut thin and cooked perfectly. They did not scrimp on the lamb nor the lettuce, tomatoes, onions or Tzatziki... More

Was just passing by this place at suppertime after the Christmas holiday. Was greeted outside the door and presented a menu. With interesting entrees, we decided to try it. We were promptly seated and greeted by our wait person. She was pleasant then and throughout our dinner, and always attentive to our needs and satisfaction. My date and started off... More

We were walking by and just come in. The place were full. The attendant was so nice, fast service and delicious food. We had the hummus plate, grilled chicken platter, Greek combo and baklava. Carafe and two coffees. Amazing!!! We came back the next day. Strongly recommended.

Thank Yadira L
