“Decent food for a decent price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011

One thing about Athena that I wish they would change is the decor. The somewhat amateur mural of Greece covering the exterior walls could be cute in a kitschy way, but the inside is a bit stuffy and old fashioned, but not in a trendy kind of way. They seem to do a lot of takeout business, but I feel they would get more eat-in business if they updated their look. South Park Slope has become increasingly gentrified, and as they lose their old-school customers, I'm afraid they might not gain the young newcomers. The food is actually pretty good, although the kebabs have been a bit overcooked and dry.

“The perfect spot for meat eaters AND vegetarians !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2011

We were thrilled we ate here ! Almost all of the main dishes are available with meat or falafil filling . Everything was amazing . The avgolemono soup was nicely lemony . These dolmas are served with feta cheese and black olives with a fruit vinaigrette- yummy ! My son and I split a sampler plate - the Spartan combo . there was enough for 2 people , if you have soup and dolmas like we did . The owner came by frequently to make sure we were happy . We will definitely go back ! There is a full bar , and people seemed to love the Mojitios at another table .
