About Athens Restaurant in Halifax

You're Invited

For more than a quarter of a century, people have been returning to Athens Restaurant for an enjoyable dining experience and friendly hospitality. Here at the Athens, we believe in using fresh and locally sourced (when able and available) ingredients and superior products in our recipes. We prepare most everything in-house and to order. We thank you for your patronage and hope to satisfy your appetites.


As always, our goal is to make you happy and have you enjoy your meal and dining experience. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask your server or the management. A family run restaurant, we specialize in authentic Greek dishes from our own original recipes, as well as serving an array of other dishes such as grilled meats, seafood, pastas, pizza and breakfast, brunch and homemade desserts. With such a varied menu selection, there is something to please every palette.


Founded by Sam and Areti Panopalis in 1982, the Athens Restaurant has been operated by their son, Evangelos, since their re-opening on Quinpool Road in 1996. We still serve many of the same customers from our original location. At the Athens, our patrons are like family to us. We invite you to visit us for a fabulous meal. A family restaurant, operated by a family, serving families. The way it should be! Independently owned, owner operated.


Come join us and enjoy!

The Panopalis Family


“Every time I dine at Athens, it’s a thoroughly enjoyable time. Sam, Areti, Vange and the family are the keys to their success! It’s our first choice when heading out for a good time and great food." - Jonathan M.
