This is a spot-on Greek restaurant. They serve really delicious dishes, from which I want to eat more and more. I love their fish, the pasta, and the waiters are the nicest people on the world!

I have tried all greek restaurants in Vienna and I consider it as the best among the others. There are lot of first dishes and starters, while the main dishes were excellent. The "gyros" was really like home and also there are typical greek dishes. The personnel was very polite and the prices are normal.

Athene sits in a neighborhood full of heurigers serving typical Viennese and Austrian food and is a very welcome change of pace and worth a visit. The menu offers very options although my party seemed focused on the calamari, shrimp, and other seafood, all of which were grilled to perfection and delicious. Meals come with potatoes and a side salad... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Vienna’s poshest green leafy suburb is also its most romantic hotspot. Walk up Grinzinger Strasse with its many historic wine taverns. The tops of nearby Nussberg and Reisenberg hills make for great strolls through the vineyards, and the occasional discovery of a hidden winery. Popular local weekend hangouts are Neustift am Walde with even more great wine taverns, and café restaurant Cobenzl, up on Cobenzl hill – fantastic for great vistas of Vienna. The woodland around Kahlenberg has a wonderful and not too strenuous hiking path - just don't forget the insect repellent. If you have adventurous children, take them to Waldseilpark Kahlenberg (forest rope park Kahlenberg). A must-do if you want a taste of the Vienna Woods is a stop at Josefinenhütte next door with its great food, cosy interiors and wonderful outdoor space.
