We had lunch there today and it was excellent Situated on the first floor above a jewelry shop, the restaurant serves authentic Greek cuisine The gyros is ideal for lunch and the desserts are lush It's a pity that they don't open up in the evenings as we would go there for dinner as well

Reach this family business by passing through a jewelry store and hiking up a spiral staircase. Once upstairs you'll find it was worth the trek. The grouper gyro is amazing, as is their homemade hummus and switcha (Bahamian limeade). The family charm is brought right to your table by the friendly servers. It's a small place and that's part of... More

BEST Greek food I have ever had. Calamri was the best ever and Hummus was superior. Drinks were made very well and the atmosphere was great despite the terrible wind. George our waiter was adorable. Would go back there in a heartbeat and recommend it highly - bear in mind that they add the tip in for you - it's... More

Really good Greek food. Nice second floor balcony over looking the main street makes for great people watching while you enjoy some really authentic Greek food. We enjoyed Greek salads and chicken gyros.

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.
