This is not a Greek-American restaurant. It is not a Greek-Southwestern restaurant. It is not even a Greek-Middle-Eastern restaurant. It is all Greek, with the rich and complex flavors of that country, made the traditional way with no shortcuts. That’s not easy, because it is...More

I love this place. It is quiet, comfortable, and the food is always good. Great place if you like Greek food. I’ve only been there for lunch but would love to try it for dinner.

Delicious and large portions for lunch. We stumbled upon Athens while visiting 4th Ave on our girls' trip. Friendly staff and Mediterranean decor. Would love to have time to go back for dinner!
