Travelling with someone who has been many times before, I followed advice and went for the grilled option. I wasn't disappointed. I chose and enjoyed the most amazing langoustines I have had in a very long time. Accompanied by rice, salad and the usual chips. Accompanied by a bottle of wine sourced from Greece. The meal cooked and served by... More

When I lived and worked in Amsterdam from 1998-2003, this was my neighbourhood restaurant. I ate there on average once a week throughout my stay. The food is good, simple, homely Greek fare. I advise people to choose from dishes that are cooked on the wood-fired grill rather than the more complex dishes such as dolmades or moussaka. Try the... More

Looked ok from outside but inside didn't look clean and once we'd ordered we wished we hadn't as the meals we saw coming up looked bland and unappealing. Ordered taramasalata to start which arrived with French bread!! Not very authentic! Mains were sloppy and badly presented so we didn't bother staying for dessert or coffee. Spent the rest of the...

Stumbled on this place after visiting the Anne Frank house, so glad we did. Friendly service, amazing food ( mixed grill and pork stew ) and even brought us a plate of tzatziki on the house to try which was quite unexpected and appreciated! Meal with water was only €35, and we were both quite full, best valued meal we... More

I had to leave without food as there was only one poor vegetarian option, not worth the price. Disappointing...never happened to me before

My family and I ate at the De Twee Grieken in Amsterdam. From the outside the restaurant looks pleasant enough. Inside the restaurant felt unclean, tables were sticky. As for the food, the menu was typical greek fare. We had the Taramasalata tzatziki and olives to start. The taramasalata was ok, the olives were possibly the worst we have eaten,... More

Food is good as Greek almost always is. Cook seems to be real greek-man. Interior is pretty basic and intimate, there is more tables at back side garden.

We were undecided on where to eat on a Saturday evening and wanted something close to our apartment in the Jordaan area. After reading the menu at this restaurant, we decided to try it, mainly for the meat platter for 2. The place looks a little dog-eared and at first we thought no one else was eating there but when...

We had a wonderful Greek dinner here. The dolma and spanikopita starters were probably the best part of the meal. The entrees were good too-- moussaka and a lamb stew. All very tasty. The baklava was the only thing I wouldn't recommend, a bit soggy. The service was good and gracious. There were a couple of odd moments when the... More

We liked this place and were disappointed to find it full when we went back for a second bite! In nice location and good varied menu, we are frequent visitors to Greece and felt the food was of a good quality at a fair price. They even had Greek music playing!
