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.
