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

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
