Lamb gyros for lunch - too bad it wasn't the shaved lamb - it was frozen processed strips. Tazsiki - $13.50 for the smallest portion. Wait staff pacing back and forth in the restaurant - too many of them with nothing to do - so...More

The grouper gyro was fantastic! Perfectly seasoned, light crisp fry batter. Also, the lemon potatoes are just as good as the ones I had in Greece.

Very delicious, they really have the authentic Tzatziki Taste .... Lamb is very fresh. But be prepared for a Huge Bill from 15 to 35 USD just for the Mail plus Tax & Service

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.
