Welcoming staff and delicious food. Dropped in at 5 on a Saturday. By 6, the place was packed! Hubby had Slovakia dinner and it was delicious, with large portions. I had the salmon special for 15.99. Delicious! It also included a fish chowder and rice pudding, or an upgrade to choice of cheesecake for 1.99. We shared the fresh cheesecake.... More

I found the food to be ok. Nothing great or out standing. I ordered the special pork wrapped in bacon and my husband ordered chicken and Greek salad. He hated his and we switched. My was better. Lol

The only reason why I'm giving 2 stars is because the waitress was polite! Food: I ordered the platter. Spanakopita very soggy. Couldn't eat it. Salad was old. Lamb was lukewarm. Rice had no taste. I wouldn't eat here again if food was free. Do yourself a favor, don't eat here. Don't waste your money.

Good food. A lot of gravy and rice and potatoes come together. Greek salad was wonderful. Basic decor. The waiter was personable and enjoyed a conversation with us.

Great food and varied menu options and our first meat after arriving at our hotel and beginning to explore the city. Great food and reasonable prices.

Back in Halifax for a visit I returned to The Athens where I was a frequent diner some years ago. It has been renovated since I was last there, but what was most apparent was how quiet it was. Getting a table in the past usually involved a long wait. By the time I left it was starting to get... More

Athens has been around for many years and is a reliable spot for consistent service and food. Their meals aren't fancy but you get large portions that are filling and flavourful. The service is excellent and friendly and the prices are reasonable. The star of the meal for me is always the rice pudding for dessert - it alone is... More

This Restaurant has amazing food. It does not matter what kind of food you are looking for, cause you will find it here, from gourmet hamburgers to full course meals, in Canadian or Greek cuisine. The desserts will make your mouth water by just viewing them. When you are undecided and don't know what you want to eat you will... More

Wonderful chicken souvlaki dinner! It came with two skewers of chicken, roasted potato, rice, pita bread, tzatziki dip and a Greek salad. Delicious!
