Delightful Mediterranean Dishes at Cafe Athena



 Since it's our last dinner at El Nido, we wanted to eat great food. Admittedly, the lunch at the island hopping tours weren't up to par with my taste buds. Our search led us to Cafe Athena - a Mediterranean cafe named after the Goddess of Wisdom. The dinner we had there punctuated our long stay at Palawan with a very delicious meal.


Mediterranean Dips (P220)

For our starters, we had pita bread with pitipiti, hummus and babaganush. My favorite among the 3 dips was without a doubt the hummus. The babaganush shouldn't be missed too as it's very creamy.

Coconut Shake (P140)

I had so many smoothies during my stay in Palawan but the one that stood out is their Coconut Shake. It's delightful and refreshing in every sip.


Seafood Sauvlaki (P495)

The Seafood Sauvlaki had some nice tanigue in it. This dish would have been much better if there were other seafood in it like shrimp and squid. After all, it's named seafood sauvlaki and not tanigue sauvlaki. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the dish a lot.

Lamb Sauvlaki (P495)

I was highly anticipating the arrival of their Lamb Sauvlaki. When it arrived, I wasn't disappointed one bit as the meat was very tender. It was also very juicy which is exactly how I like my lamb.

Chicken Sauvlaki (P395)

Their best-seller among the three sauvlakis is Chicken. In fact, Jing (the owner) told us they would usually have 20kg of chicken delivered and it would all run out in one day. When I tried it, I wasn't surprised by that fact. It was so good that I ordered another one for myself.


Vitamin C (P200)

Since I had cough and colds, I was delighted to see the Vitamin C drink on their menu. The fresh juice contains carrot, orange and pineapple. On my first sip, I knew it was going to be one of my favorite drinks of all time.


Pasta Puttanesca (P495)

I was never a fan of red sauce pasta. However, that all changed when I tried Cafe Athena's Pasta Puttanesca. My compliments to the chef for this wonderful meal.

I highly recommend this place to all the locals and tourists visiting the wonderful island of El Nido, Palawan.
