The restaurant is located fairly close to Bedford station and there are numerous parking spaces in the roads near the restaurant - we managed to park on Rutland Road.

We went using a Groupon voucher in order to check out the restaurant but we were made as welcome as if we were normal diners.

The meal started with traditional cold Greek starters - humous, chillis, beetroot, a potato salad, a cold seafood dish and tzatziki and warm pitta bread. After the cold starters were a series of warm dishes including haolumi, dolmades, spinach & feta in filo pastry, calamari and a warm sausage dish.

The main courses were lamb kleftiko, chicken skewers with rice a pork dish and a Greek salad.

All of the food was delicious especially the calamari, chicken skewers and lamb kleftiko and the waiter was really friendly and helpful.

The meal amazingly also included a glass each of the house red wine.

We were very impressed by the quality and quantity of the food, the great service and the overall atmosphere of the restaurant and will definitely return as soon as possible.

We stumbled upon this place by accident. My husband and I were staying at a nearby hotel for the night to celebrate my birthday and when dinner at the hotel restaurant was going to take too long, he googled places to eat nearby and found the Athena. Well what a find. Belly dancing, Greek dancing, attentive and welcoming staff and fantastic Meze. We had a brilliant night and it made my birthday extra special. We will definitely return and would highly recommend

Went for our girls birthday !!!
Staff where almost too attentive as very quite ,but food was very good and tasty .
We would have loved to go when busy with dancing and entertainment as this venue has huge potential .
A very strange sewage smell when you first enter the property and not a eye catching property from the street .
Would recommend the restaurant as they deserved recognition for lovely food ,they just need well deserved bums on seats to create a fantastic atmosphere , keep going guys , we will be back.xx
