We have visited this restaurant before and gave very positive reviews : this time the restaurant was very quiet, service vey average compared to previously, and prices seemed very expensive. Gratuity should be at the customers discretion. The menu appeared unchanged.

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.
