Had the octopus as an app and shared a huge fried hogfish- octopus was amazing and the fish was perfectly seasoned and nice and had the most amazing texture even though it was fried. Thoroughly enjoyed my lunch!

We had an excellent breakfast here. Omelette with spicy feta- delicious and great coffee. There is a separate breakfast menu but you can also pick from the main menu. Great view over the street from the terrace. Worth a visit.

The grand master, Mr. Mousis recently passed on but the food is excellent and authentic. The gyro were loaded with meat and were the freshest we've ever had. Highly recommended.

Perhaps one of the only two places to have Gyros (euros) in Nassau. Great taste, reasonable prices and best location (downtown nassau). Will visit again for Gyros!

I've been here early in the morning for breakfast when we were the first customers and when it was quite busy for a business lunch. Both times, the food was great. An easy walk to its central location in downtown Nassau. Will return.

Restaurant is a little pricy. Gyro I believe was something like $14. That said, if you take the prices out of the equation, the food is really good. The hummus is the best I have ever had. Good views from the balcony.

We've dined here a few times and have never been disappointed. The food, service and staff are exceptional! They make the best gyros! Try the passion fruit Mojito, you wont be disappointed. They also make the best coconut banana bread i have ever tasted! 😋😋😋

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.
