This place was wonderful in every way. The food was amazing, very fresh and came out so quickly. Meal sizes were quite big, great value for money. All the staff were so welcoming and nice. Can't wait to visit again

This restaurant is a local gem. We had a wonderful birthday at Athenia. We love our Greek food and enjoyed sharing lots of delicious dishes.

My husband is Greek and he adores his Greek food so we were really looking forward to having dinner there to celebrate his birthday. The service was friendly, however the Lamb souvlaki was a real disappointment. It's my children's favourite Greek meal but the lamb( we are not sure if it was actually lamb) left a bitter taste and was... More
