Truly Greek corner at the very heart of Amsterdam!

This spot was the great end of my day. The food and wine were perfect! The lamb melted in the mouth. Cozy atmosphere, greek music, kind and pleasant stuff and good value for money.

This greek has really great and tasty food. However, it does not look like an authentic greek restaurant. I presonally think that the interior makes the restaurant and the whole ambiance.The prices are average.

Went here to eat with a group of friends on the first day of a trip to Amsterdam and it proved to be a great start to a great holiday. I ordered a chicken gyros platter, the portion for 10 Euro was huge and absolutely delicious! The service was prompt and the waitress very informative. Will definitely visit again when... More

Four of us had dinner here. Service was prompt and informative. All four of us got different meals and when the food came, there wasn't much talking because of all the "ummming" from everyone enjoying there dishes. Bread and after dinner coffee included and delecious. The other couple even went back a second night because the meal was so good.... More

If you are looking for a great Greek Restaurant, with amazingly friendly staff and reasonable prices - then the Greek Waves in Amsterdam is for you. The Calimari is outstanding and, of course the Gyros are to die for. While the traditional lamb wasn't offered - they had the most amazingly flavored chicken gyros I have ever had. The beers...

Came here based on TripAdvisor reviews, but was disappointed. The food was relatively inexpensive, 14,99 euro for a gyro platter. The fries were great, but the meat (pork and chicken only) was salty and the salad came out without dressing. The food was forgivable, we walked away satisfied although it was far from the best Greek we have ever had... More
