Do yourself a favor, and don't miss this surprisingly great restaurant! Have the fresh fish of the day, which will have been caught locally by the young owner, then prepared by his uncle! Amazing!

The service is superb and the food is amazing. Athena Cafe is run by a family so naturally they've created a great dining experience that is perfect for families. The atmosphere is relaxed and it's just a great place to eat and reconnect with family and friends.

We planned on eating at the Fish Fry for lunch but got too hungry doing our shopping downtown. We had been to Greece and couldn't resist stopping in at this restaurant after seeing the menu. The owners are Greek and believe me, their menu is very authentic. After the first bite of our gyro we had flashbacks to what we... More

I visit this restaurant occasionally when in Nassau. The proprietor does his best to serve what I want. Somewhat pricy, but in the heart of the tourist district

The food was excellent, well prepared tasty. The Host was very customer oriented. The visit was in 2014. There is no field for that time.

I haven't been to this restaurant in a while but I was pleasantly surprised that the taste and quality of the food was just the way I remembered it. Good lamb burger that was just right. I enjoyed my lunch that day even though it was a business lunch. Their Gyros are the best!

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.
