If it does not have a family owned jewelry store under it you are in the fake Athena! The real one is clean, family owned and has great service. Look for blue American white on the main drag. 242-326-1296

Lovely restaurant on the first floor. Friendly staff. Fresh Greek food. Loved the pork chop ($25) served with rice and peas. Greek salad a bit expensive at $15 with not to much colors. It needed to be more vibrant with more red tomatoes and olives....More

I had the gyro with lamb, and it was very tasty and well spiced. I was pregnant at the time and was constantly sick, but somehow I still managed to love this place.

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.
