Really enjoyed the food, we both had the meze which was super value. The lamb kleftiko was gorgeous and the roast potatoes that came with it were a special treat. Pleasant staff and nice surroundings. A lovely Saturday evening.

Once we found the door and went upstairs to the first floor we were surprised by the huge restaurant, which would be great for a large group or party.
Very quiet thursday evening, we had the waiter to ourselves and he presented us with a raki shot which was great
Both had kleftico which was very nice but with the potatoes could have done with a bit more sauce. Taramsalata was fab and feta great with loads of pitta
Not cheap but good value and would go again..

We arrived around 8pm. The restaurant was a little quiet which was a little daunting as it's quite a large space. We were allowed to pick our table and we given menus immediately. They didn't have the wine we wanted but were offered a very nice alternative. Our waiter offered us advise on the menu and choices. The mezze was highly recommened but we decided to make our own mezze from starters. They came reasonably quickly and were well presented. We ordered the Greek sausages, a favourite of mine from holidays gone by. They didn't disappoint. I ordered the mix grill for main which was well cooked and presented. Then the fun began. The live music got a little louder and the dancing begun. I myself am not a dancer but some tables got up supported by the staff. It was a very enjoyable evening. Great food, great ambience after a quiet start and very friendly. We will certainly return again.

We have been to this restaurant twice, once with a party and secondly just with my wife. Both times have been an amazing experience. The Athena is very smart inside and the Host is extremely attentive, the food is fabulous and the portions are large and varied and between our visits the menu had been extended to include some new home made dishes e.g. spinach and feta parcels, and a homemade aubergine dip. The meat courses are excellent and the lamb is something to die for. Entertainment at the weekend is of a high standard
