I have been visiting this restaurant for years which is owned by a Greek-Bahamian family. They also serve yummy Bahamian food in addition to Greek and I always depart wanting to return for more. Be sure to visit them when you tour downtown Nassau.

Located in the heart of downtown Bay Street, Athena cafe offers the authentic greek cuisine with a Bahamian flare. Not only you can find the traditional greek favorites here but also Bahamian delicacies such as conch, snapper, grouper and lobster! We are a true, family operated business that want everyone to feel like family as soon as they enter. Have a choice to sit at our cosy bar, our air conditioned dining room or the lively verandah.
