We love Greek and it was authentic, generous, friendly, my kleftico was delicious and spouse's moussaka he loved. Good wine as well so I was full to bursting but was determined to have baklava. We waddled home after this

On a spur of the moment decision to head out for a meal down Terminus Road, we stumbled upon Athens restaurant , it was busy with few tables empty. They had parties in and warned us there may be a wait , that was fine as we were in no rush . The service was exemplary considering they were busy, we were offered drinks immediately. The wait for food wasn't as long as we had expected given the warning.
My boyfriend had a tbone steak , he is quite a Connoisseur and when it came up all I can say is WOW seriously one of the nicest steaks he had eaten and cooked perfectly as ordered , the attention to customer relations is first class with the owner frequently checking on tables to ensure everything was ok . Prices are very reasonable too making this well established restaurant a perfect choice for a guaranteed good night out ....would highly recommend

Took my aged Mum out for dinner on a slow Wednesday night in Eastbourne (and believe me, that can be reeeaaaalllly slow). So we trogged on down to Terminus Road (perhaps not the best-advised street name in a town famed for its geriatric population) and discovered Athens for the first time.

Said aged mother has lived in Eastbourne for over 20 years and had somehow failed to register the existence of this wonderful restaurant which, Helen told us, had been there for 50 - making it the oldest restaurant in town.

Helen, btw, is the effusive, lively and hugely personable Greek Cypriot lady who runs the front of house. Her mother runs the kitchen: and has done for all those 50 years.

Mum had Kleftiko. I had Stiffado. Both brilliant. Tender, beautifully cooked. Still, if you've had 50 years to perfect it, I guess you're going to get it right. Tzatziki was one of the best I've ever tasted.

Hugely enjoyable food. Great value. House wine at under £13. And great friendly service and chat from Helen.

Would unreservedly recommend. Go!
