Once again Belinda, lily and all the staff at athenia gave us 1st class service and we loved celebrating mum's birthday there tonight. The trio of dips, calamari, haloumi, stuffed zucchini and souvlaki were divine as usual. A top gold coast restaurant!

We love this place for Lunch. Usually have plates of Tapas style i.e. Haloumi, garlic mushrooms, meatballs etc. The staff are wonderful and really take the time and care to look after you. The Owner has a real sense of humour.
