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!

After falling for the tourist traps of the Red Light District, we were craving more wholesome food in a more relaxed atmosphere. That's when I discovered this little jewel on TripAdvisor! As a vegetarian with specific dietary requirements and being part of a group of meat lovers, I thought of Greek, as this cuisine pleases all! We entered the restaurant... More

I felt like greek food so went here based on reviews. Had stuffed grape leaves to start (they serve them hot!) which was good. Then greek salad - dressing was very weak, but good portion. Then had mixed grill which came with a pretty good amount of meat - small pieces of chicken, pork, hamburger beef and very very small... More

The food is great and the portions are huge that's enough for 2 people. i ordered the mixed grill one night and the lamb dish in another night and they were both delicious. The appetizers are excellent especially the spicy feta ( i cant remember the... More

We came upon this restaurant while looking for another one. We we're pleased we did. The service was good and friendly. The food was tasty, freshly made and as good as We have had in Greece. We'll be back next time we're in Amsterdam.

We went to this restaurant late in the night. The owner/chef had almost closed down but saw us and whipped a dish on the go. It was absolutely amazing. This restaurant is very cozy and easy to miss, guess that adds to the charm.

We had a lovely evening here - it was a warm night so we could sit outside in the back where there is a small courtyard with about 4 tables, very charming surrounded by lots of trees and greenery from the gardens of surrounding houses. We had a delicious meal - way too much food though!! - and we found... More
