I've been visiting Atina for just over a year and couldn't recommend it highly enough! Absolutely fabulous for breakfast and lunch, with a varied fresh menu that changes regularly. Wonderful atmosphere with great staff.

Popped in off chance as we passed, so glad we did. My daughter myself and granddaughter ate lunch and haf drinks, had a choice of sitting in courtyard behind. Service was fast and food freshly prepared, all with a smile. We ill call again when we visit next time.

Dear Marilyn, glad you all enjoyed the experience. Yes our ( non smoking) courtyard is now open again for the spring/ summer - it's a fully enclosed sun trap - ideal for eating or just drinking. Hope to see you next time More

Dear Michael, a quick look at your other 5 star reviews shows that you don't use the word " fantastic" very much at all - thank you . It's like a 5 star plus review. Really pleased you enjoyed it all and see you again soon . More

Really excellent food. My wife is vegetarian. I'm not. We were walking by and the menu was inviting as was the premises. I had grilled haloumi salad with beetroot. Excellent.

Happened upon this gem as the coffee shop we were going to was closed. Really pleased we went here. I had a brunch which was absolutely gorgeous. My wife had poached eggs on toast and she said t was the nicest she ever had. Sounds silly when you say it but you have to try it.

Atina K, Owner at Atina Kitchen, responded to this review

Dear Sean, thanks for the super review. Don't think it's silly saying that it is the best poached eggs ever tasted at all, there's a lot of different factors that influence just how the poached egg turns out ( list deleted as I did not want to bore everyone ) but most importantly our chefs are obsessive about getting it...

Enjoying & sharing great food, drink & conversation with family, friends & even strangers (at times) is where we take our influence from. It's how we grew up. Although our roots are firmly in Italian cooking techniques, we love all cuisines & cooking styles at Atina Kitchen & this is reflected throughout our menus.
