“Great night at Athene”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Read the only review here and am surprised. Just got back from a long weekend in Amsterdam and found Athene by accident on the riverbank of Amstel in a lovely posh and quite location/neighbourhood. Emilios (the owner) and his team are doing a great job, food was authentically Greek (and trust me, I should know been a Greek myself), lots of interaction with the customers creating lots of Greek 'kefi' or to put it in Dutch, 'gezellig'! Which, means everything from everything from cozy to friendly, from comfortable to relaxing, and from enjoyable to gregarious! Lots of Greek drinks, such as wine, beer (Mythos) and of course 'tsipouro', the first produce that comes out when you distil ouzo... We would definitely be going back once in Amsterdam!

“Ok food if it ever gets there”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Looked promising and wasn't very busy when we sat down. Took forever and two reminders just to get the menus, which should have been a clear sign. Appetizers came out slowly and individually, and it was almost another thirty minutes before the main courses arrived. Fortunately the kids were patient! The food wasn't hot but tasted ok, and the side of chips was pretty tacky. After we finished, it took another ten minutes to get their attention, and ten more to get the ice cream that came with the kids' meals. Our coffee never did show up. And it wasn't just us - the couple next to us left after they got tired of waiting for their main courses.
