Nice enough surroundings but the food was a bit uninspiring. I had a mixed grill which was just lacking in both seasoning and inspiration.

Good food, but very bad service, we had to wait at the entrance for 15 min even though we had booked in advance and the restaurant was almost empty. they tried to charge us more without telling us, just by putting wrong "belopp". Very Disappointing behavior!!

If you are looking for a genuine Greek restaraung with a bit of influence of international cousine then this restaurant is a must on your list. If you are lucky you can hear live greek musik while you enjoying your meal. The friendly stuff raises even more the quality.

If you're looking for a reasonably-priced meal in the centre of Gothenburg, Athena is a good choice. We found the service very welcoming and efficient considering how busy the place was.

Such a nice place everything was real great. The staff is nice. We had tapas which was really tasty and good, you just have to try the greek bread with goatcheesecream so good. you can eat just that. But everything we tryed was great.

This place is well worth a visit we arrived at 8:45pm and it was supposed to close at 9 but they stayed open. More people arrived after us and they accommodated these too. We had tapas and it was fantastic everything was top notch will be returning on my next business trip.

Yum yum yum!!! We had the meat platter and a salad. The meat was tasty and tender. Traditional simple Greek food, made just the way it should be. Can't wait to go back next time we're in town.

Thank Sarah S
