We recently had our work Christmas party at Athenia and had the most wonderful evening. The owner was very obliging as were the lovely staff. Entertainment was provided as a surprise and was really good fun. Everyone also enjoyed the food. A big thank you...to Athenia.More

We had a good time at the Athenia, the owner's a prickly character but all in all we had a lovely evening.

We have eaten at Athenia twice and both times the meal has been nicely presented and absolutely delicious. The service was excellent.

We had a family dinner here looking across the water. The food was delicious with a good range of dishes and generous servings, and not expensive. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The setting is really lovely and there was easy parking on the...street.More

What a beautiful spot to have a long lunch with family. The food was beyond amazing and the service was terrific. I definitely recommend the platters so you can try many delicious flavours. Will definitely be back again and again. : )

Staff friendly and meal was delicious. Great setting right on the lake. First we went with another couple and food and service was great. So went back as a couple and just as good. Good idea to book.

Finally ventured out last night and was pleased to do so The menu was smaller than previous years but everything was excellent We shared a sumptuous starter of garlic mushrooms but the star dish of the night was the Stifado which melted in your mouth...We enjoyed a bottle of Retsina to finalise the Greek taste So pleased to be eating dinner out again 😆More

I have reviewed this restaurant before but it’s time to do it again. The first day we could go to a restaurant with the easing of the COVID-19 restrictions we booked and came here. The food was fabulous and the owners friendly and pleased to...be open again. Due to the 10 person max limit we could only go with one son and his girlfriend, so we went back the next weekend with the other and girlfriend, this time we also brought her parents. Its always a little worrying when you bring someone to a restaurant you have raved about. It did not disappoint, they loved every course and are planning to come back with their other daughter.More

Beware ! Chaos here. Arrived for our booking of 12 people on Saturday night on time at 6pm to be advised that as we had not reconfirmed the booking, they had cancelled it! No reconfirmation was required at time of booking or required in the...website. Staff Advised that they tried to contact us during the week to reconfirm but they had taken the mobile phone number down wrong at time of booking. Spoke to the owner who blamed us for giving the wrong mobile phone number. Clearly their error at time of booking and clearly they had overbooked the restaurant. No accountability from the owner, who despite ruining the night of 12 people didn’t seem to care a bit.More
