Thank you for placing this fabulous food in Nassau. Who doesn't crave a lamb gyro and a frappe daily? Authentic, as the owner is from the Peloponnese. Nice place, well run, terrific food.

Stopped for a light lunch and after 45 bucks for a salad and appetizer with bottled water instead of tap the food was ok but Greek salad very average. Way too much for a small lunch.

Stopped by this place because it was the first restaurant we saw offer fresh coconut water straight out of the shell. We chose outdoor seating because we can people watch from above, not looking like weirdos. We decided to try the cracked conch since we have had conch fritters before.

Own by all Greek family the food is consistent and prices are reasonable. Been in business for over 10 years but not open for late dinners so lunch option. Great view of downtown Nassau if you sit on outside balcony

If you want a great atmosphere with a outdoor deck, great food and service try out this place. They have the giant margaritas and yard glasses the same as Senor Frogs but is much more affordable.

The food was average, but overpriced! $15 for a lamb gyro!! Service was good except for a senior Greek gentlemen mingling around and randomly yelling OPA ,which has not been used since Anthony Quinn in Zorba the Greek..

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat while shopping in town. Staff was extremely attentive and service was prompt. Outdoor seating provides a wonderful view of the picturesque main street. Food was delicious and serving sizes were more than adequate. Overall experience was very good.

We overlooked the bustling street at lunch time...it was really quite an experience. The food was GREAT! Everyone in our party loved it. The wait staff were incredible. Attentive, kind, but not over-bearing.

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.
