Bahamas Eats: Athena Restaurant

 We came across the Athena Greek Restaurant after a couple of trips to downtown Nassau because it seemed like it would offer a less touristy feel, which it did,  except for the downtown prices. I refused to pay $15 for a dollop of tzatziki and so we ended up sharing the lobster entree, which was a substantial portion,  tasty and well-flavored, though on the greasy/buttery side ($35).
The nice service and the wandering old Greek man (the owner?) who would break out into song and spontaneous cries of “Opa!” made the meal less regretful, although I am still pining for the Jimmy’s Take-Away we found afterwards but didn’t have a chance to try. 
It reminds me so much of the Tuscan wedding dinner whose cheese and honey buffet I was too full to even approach. (It still haunts me to this day.)
