“Authentic Greek food at a budget price.”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

This sparkingly clean restaurant is a little gem in the very heart of the city. Situated just opposite Central Station you would expect to have to bring the bank manager to afford the prices.
Far from it!
At lunch time you can have a wonderful 2-course meal and a drink for a tenner.
The food is authentic and the service is second to none. You can even make small adjustments
to the set menu to accomodate your particular palate.
If you have ever been to Greece (or even if you haven't) pop into the Athena for a truly
wonderful culinary experience!

“Excellent Greek restaurant in heart of city”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

2013 NEW
Excellent Greek restaurant straight across from Glasgow central station. Booked via 5pm and received 25% discount from meal which was a great bonus before we even had our meal . The food is reasonably priced to begin with and we opted for the chefs meze which gave you an array of starters mains dessert and a coffee for £20 a head . The food was delicious , fresh and let us sample a lot of the popular dishes on the menu. Stand out dishes for us was the spicy lamb sausage, chicken skewer meat , beef stidado and moussaka . The red merlot ordered was lovely and the coffees at end of meal finished off our meal perfectly .

The staff are friendly and were happy that we had opted to let them help us choose the food they thought best .

Will definitely be back and would recommend especially for couples looking for a romantic meal or a group looking for a special get together

“A hidden gem!”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

My husband and i had a gorgeous lunch here, booked it on 5pm, first time for booking 5pm and also eating at Athena. We both thoroughly love Greek holidays and Greek food, so when i found this little hidden gem and had excellent reviews on trip advisor it was a win win situation, we were not disapointed. We would and will recommend this restuarant to our family and friends. Greek music playing, food is so tasty, the staff are so friendly and made you feel welcome, just lovely. makes you want to go back to Greece on holiday. We will definately be back to sample more of your delicious food.
