    Food is great, but on this occasion, the place was almost empty and the volume of the music should have been lowered accordingly. I will go back because I like the food, but the service was chaotic and the server just made us feel nervous as she was chaotic.

    A good selection of Greek food. But don't sit near the door as it's cold. £17.50 for wine. Very reasonable

    Excellent food and service. The meatballs starter and the grilled Chicken athena was some of the best Greek food I've had.

    Passed Athena a few times and liked the look of the menu so took the plunge last night. Was greeted by a very pleasant girl and was directed to our seat. The place was pretty quiet being a Wednesday night and pretty early too - 7pm. We had a look at the pre theatre which looked good value for money but after not much discussion we went for the Chefs Special at £44.99 for two. I was glad I had a light lunch that day as the food kept coming and coming and still kept coming! After the enormous starters washed down with a very cold Greek beer (delicious) our lovely server left us for some time till the mains came out, and another beer. Too many things to mention but again was left to digest this lot before dessert, and another beer! To be honest Ifelt there really was too much food for two people although maybe ok for two guys (according to hubby) The food was excellent, fresh, tasty, not too spicy and each plate that came out our server explained what everything was. The place was relaxed and comfortable, the service was impeccable. I will certainly be returning to Athena but maybe not for the Chefs Special, however the advantage of having this is that you know what you like and dislike as its made up of small plates of nearly everything. It's definitely value for money and well worth it. But be warned - go on an empty stomach!

    This visit was a wee bit disappointing. I think there must have been a few things going on that we didn't see. Our drinks took ages to appear and the gin was thin! The staff were lovely and very apologetic. Our food was fine except I felt the vegetarian main course which I had was a bit small in portion size, very tasty but too much sauce and not enough veg . We still had a nice night and the restaurant was cosy. Hope it is better next time 🎃🎃🎃
