Where to Eat: Greek in Bristol

6 September 2019 | Maisy Farren

Spotlight on: The Athenian 
Unit 16, Cargo 2, First Floor, Gaol Ferry Steps, Bristol, BS1 6WD

Looking for something exciting for lunch? The Athenian is Bristol’s go to Souvlaki spot – a healthy and delicious meal that’s quick enough to grab on your one-hour break. What is Souvlaki we hear you say! Well, Souvlaki comes from the word ‘little skewer’, and is made up of meat or cheese (grilled on a little skewer), piled into a pita wrap and rolled up with fresh salad. And it’s healthy, so you’re welcome to add as much feta cheese as you want without feeling bad about it. 
 
Everything at The Athenian is kept authentic and fresh, so your meal will always be made to order, with skewers grilled on the spot. The Extra Virgin Olive Oil comes straight from Greece, along with authentic pita bread and anti-oxidant filled oregano from The Med. They do, however, keep things local with locally farmed meat and Greek yoghurts made in-house. The main ingredient to your Souvlaki can be Chicken Skewer, Pork Skewer or Ground Lamb & Beef, or meat free customers can enjoy salty Halloumi, Tomato Croquettes or Grilled Mushrooms! They also offer Gyros, which are kind of like (much healthier) kebabs, and their Vegan Gyro is made of Seitan and Soya
