“Gone Anti Alcohol - Avoid”

Athineos Restaurant
Ranked #482 of 1 307 Restaurants in Alexandria
Restaurant details
Reviewed 27 July 2018

The Athineos was never known for good food but it was at least somewhere that you could sit by the window with a good view and have a beer and some nibbles. They have recently had a refurbishment and either at that point, or in the last 6 months have decided to stop selling alcohol.
The previous reviews have shown that the food has not improved so as you now can’t even get an alcoholic drink any tourists may as well just avoid the place. Travelers need to understand that there remains a heavy conservative religious presence in this city, which will hold back the return of tourists. When I briefly visited on an early evening weekend day there was one table occupied out of perhaps forty. Perhaps even the tourist companies have realized that this place has become pointless.

Must visit strongly recommended place for fresh sea food. We had been here during lunch.. the calm atmosphere, the awesome view of the Mediterranean sea takes your breath away.
The service is quick, food is tasty literally oil free and hence healthy.
The place started in 1900 packs in lot of history with photographs neatly collaged that takes you back in time

This restaurant has a fantastic location overlooking the Mediterranean sea.
It's inside ambience was good with a Greek decor.
As we were a pretty large group with over 40 members, they should have spread the seating arrangement. Instead we were all cramped together. it was difficult to come out of the seat.
Our tour operator had fixed our lunch and dinner here.
We were rather surprised to see the same buffet spread during lunch and dinner. It gave a feeling that we were eating the left overs for dinner. This became too obvious when many of the members did not get any food at dinner time. They complained to the manager but to no avail. Many had to go back without dinner.
This is a serious matter and the hotel management should take care of such bad service especially considering the fact that they're foreign tourists.

It was a pre set meal. For non vegetarian it was two different types of fish with fish soup. For the vegetarians it was rice with some gravy and french fries. The place was very crowded but the staff was not polite at all.
