Excellent cozy little Greek restaurant. Fantastic food & service. The two brothers do a great job running things. Dolmades were amazing. Pastichio was on point. Baklava was just how my Grandmother used to make them.

It's much like a family establishment with generous portions, tasty, well presented dishes. There are a limited number of tables but we are usually able to be seated without a reservation. They have excellent grilled food for lunch and dinner. Salads are generous and tasty. We enjoy the fish. The burgers are quite good as well.

We (two 60+ parents) were dropping our adult daughter off in Brooklyn, where she was going to be staying at a friend's apartment in Park Slope. The Italian restaurant we were heading for was not open for lunch, but this place was open for lunch and right across the street. As it was a chilly, grey, windy weekday between the... More

As it’s been such a brutally hot summer, we haven’t been able to do much walking/adventuring in the other boroughs. So, today, we ventured into Park Slope, Brooklyn. After striking out in the ‘usual’ areas, we drove a few blocks, only to find “Athena” Mediterranean Cuisine on 6th Avenue. We’ve never been here before, so it was a new culinary... More

It is a small cosy restaurant. We tried the chicken and lamb suflaki and to my taste the lamb suflaki is a better choice as the chicken was a bit dry. The rice was very tasty. The spice feta was unique and perfect. They have a special wine made of Ouzo plus seven up colored blue. That was awesome. I... More

Clean place and fairly comfortable seating. But the the food portions were a bit small for adults. Taste of food average to above average at best. Friendly staff tries to get you to order more items so that you spend more $$$$$. Not really worth it.
