This place is a fantastic restaurant with reasonable prices and excellent food. During summer evenings they offer probably the best evening sun in Gothenburg city. Go there

Nice enough surroundings but the food was a bit uninspiring. I had a mixed grill which was just lacking in both seasoning and inspiration.

Good food, but very bad service, we had to wait at the entrance for 15 min even though we had booked in advance and the restaurant was almost empty. they tried to charge us more without telling us, just by putting wrong "belopp". Very Disappointing behavior!!

If you are looking for a genuine Greek restaraung with a bit of influence of international cousine then this restaurant is a must on your list. If you are lucky you can hear live greek musik while you enjoying your meal. The friendly stuff raises even more the quality.

If you're looking for a reasonably-priced meal in the centre of Gothenburg, Athena is a good choice. We found the service very welcoming and efficient considering how busy the place was.
