I've been on the Island for two weeks now on business. We made this place our 'go to' spot, as it is a great place for lunch. Quality Greek food, for sure. However, the reason I am writing this review is to give a shout-out to our server, Anna Maria. I love the friendliness of the people, but prompt service... More

We were traveling with 6 adults and 6 children of all ages. We were staying at the Atlantis but decided to do some shopping that day. We came upon this greek restaurant. It's above a store. We were seated immediately, it's a small place. Lots of locals dining here. The grilled octopus was a winner with this group, we had... More

We had lunch there today and it was excellent Situated on the first floor above a jewelry shop, the restaurant serves authentic Greek cuisine The gyros is ideal for lunch and the desserts are lush It's a pity that they don't open up in the evenings as we would go there for dinner as well

The place is relatively small but the location downtown Nassau is excellent. Hidden above the jewelry store, it provides an original vibe of Nassau. Try to sit outside if possible. The food was great. Try a shrimp gyro, you will not regret. Additionally, for all the folks coming of the cruise ship, Athena is located 10 min stroll from the... More

Reach this family business by passing through a jewelry store and hiking up a spiral staircase. Once upstairs you'll find it was worth the trek. The grouper gyro is amazing, as is their homemade hummus and switcha (Bahamian limeade). The family charm is brought right to your table by the friendly servers. It's a small place and that's part of... More

BEST Greek food I have ever had. Calamri was the best ever and Hummus was superior. Drinks were made very well and the atmosphere was great despite the terrible wind. George our waiter was adorable. Would go back there in a heartbeat and recommend it highly - bear in mind that they add the tip in for you - it's... More

Description
Located in the heart of downtown Bay Street, Athena cafe offers the authentic greek cuisine with a Bahamian flare. Not only you can find the traditional greek favorites here but also Bahamian delicacies such as conch, snapper, grouper and lobster! We are a true, family operated business that want everyone to feel like family as soon as they enter. Have a choice to sit at our cosy bar, our air conditioned dining room or the lively verandah.
