This is "the" place for Greek Food in Albany. The authentic menu is outstanding, excellent service and real Greek culture among ownership and staff. And, as a restaurant, they are great corporate citizens among our Greek population within Albany's Capital Region.

I have eaten here dozens of times over the past several years. Both the food and service are consistently very good. I could make a meal of their kolokithakia (zucchini chips with salt & vinegar).

Athos was voted one of the 100 Best Greek Restaurants in America by The National Herald. Casually elegant, Athos serves only the very freshest seasonal ingredients, lovingly brought together using time-honored recipes and techniques, like clay pot cooking, and whole fresh fish-filleted table-side.
