I can't think what else you could want from a restaurant, especially one so recently established on this site. Pleasant surroundings, helpful and interested staff, good service, great food and great value, Athena had it all in spades!
It is a long time since my wife and I enjoyed a meze at a Greek restaurant, those we used to frequent have all closed down. This was truly amazing, especially for the price, I have to say I assumed that it was going to be £40 each, not for the 2 of us.
Our friendly waitress was at our table in a flash, with menus and the offer of drinks and feta and olives to keep us from wasting away before the giant, mouthwatering meze began to arrive. I chose the Chilean Merlot, which was smooth and gentle and only £15 a bottle.
The classic Greek dips were as expected and when we requested more pitta it too was whisked to our table. The meatballs and the dolmades were delicious as were the delights that followed. I don't quite know where we found the room for the sweet and excellent coffees that were also included.
If I had a single minor criticism perhaps a couple of the dishes could have been slightly hotter, however I appreciate the difficulty in getting about 8 dishes onto the table at the same time.
