The GREATEST lamb chops I have ever tasted....ever.....anywhere. Thick, melt-in-your mouth tender and perfectly seasoned. I ordered them medium rare and they were served hot and precisely as I requested. The side dish of roasted potatoes was nicely seasoned. I ordered those well done.

Hubby and I walked here from our 'home away from home' and enjoyed a lovely meal. Staff was friendly and attentive without smothering. I had mousaka which I thoroughly enjoyed and hubby was pleased with his shrimp. Hummus was perfect.

We have eaten here yearly for 10 years and always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Our dinner last night was very disappointing. My wife always loved the the flakey homemade spinach pie but now it appears as something right out of the frozen section at a grocery store . In fact when inquiry about the quality, the waitress politely stated... More

This is an nice place for a beer and a drink, but nothing if You want to eat a nice meal. I ordered the gyros, but it was not warm and tasted nothing. My wife had an similar experience with her moussaka. I saw some people that had to wait very long to get the bill. NO!!

Our plane was delayed so we were looking for something other than a fast food chain and it was later at night. Athena by the Sea fir the bill. We sat the bar and had the Gyro pizza and Greek salad. Everything was very good and the bartender was friendly.

The pizza was amazing, the crust was succulent! My girlfriend took the grek salad and she liked it! The small size is perfect. Good ambiance, the music was okay, the restaurant is sited at a good place in lauderdale by the see.

Nice indoor or outdoor atmosphere. Very eclectic delicious menu. Bar and restaurant. If you do not like smoke, I suggest eating inside, you can get the outdoors feel even eating in.

Four of us for dinner and three ordered the roasted chicken which came highly recommended from the local hotel manager. One had baked jumbo shrimp. The meals did not disappoint. Service was attentive but not overly--very friendly and efficient.
