Unfortunately, this place was not open for dinner, otherwise I would order even more. Everything came out fresh and yummy. Octopus, moussaka, souvlaki, trio with pita all excellent. Service is very attentive and sharp. What an unexpected find during souvenir shopping in Nassau!

Don't leave Nassau without stopping in for the best drink ever. The mango daquiris here are the best in the world. They also have some of the best conch fritters in the Bahamas. This place is a must stop while shopping in downtown Nassau.

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.
