BEST GREEK IN ST PETE.
My fiance and I moved to St Pete in Oct and this was one of the first places we ate. I remember it being a Sunday afternoon and there was a Bucs game on the TV. We were the only 2 people dining at the time.
The food was AWESOME. I had the Chicken Souvlaki platter and she had a salad. My chicken was perfectly grilled and the sauce and rice were wonderful. I didnt try her salad but she said it was very good.
Well we returned a couple of weeks ago. The place was packed. Every table was full. There were 4 people waiting. 3 of which were for dine in, 1 was waiting for a take out order. It took us about 20 minutes to be seated.. most people probably would have left, but we knew how good the food was on our last visit. I'm happy to say that nothing has changed, except the crowd. I'm really glad that they are staying busy. I was worried when we moved here that if things continued like to be like that Sunday afternoon, they may not last. I would recommend Athenian Gardens to anyone who enjoys excellent greek cuisine at fair prices. And I havent even touched their dessert case yet.. I'm sure its marvelous.
Awesome Greek Food.
My wife and I were spending a short vacation in St. Petersburg. We had a craving for Greek food and happened across Athenian Gardens. We had a great dinner. Kenny was an excellent server and helped us pick out a delicious dinner.
We ordered the Souvlaki Platter with lamb and the Aegean chicken. The house salad was huge, and very tasty. The lamb had a great grilled flavor. The Aegean chicken was the best. The artichokes and capers tasted great with the chicken.
The whole time in St. Pete, Athenian Gardens was the best meal we ate, and we ate at some good restaurants. We will definitely stop by the next year.
