under valued gem - great Greek food

We accidentally discovered Dionysos, a tiny Greek restaurant at the Overtoom in Amsterdam. The food is amazing, very tasty and freshly made. The decoration of the place is below average, don't get hang up on it, just try the food and you will be a regular very soon. We live far away from the city... read more

The dishes were great, everything from the lamb to the chicken was delicious. The place was a little small and also the greek music was a little bit too high, this bothered our conversation The table was without clothes and the napkins were of paper. The waiter seems not a little bit asleep. Paid for a single dish in 5... More

I don't like giving bad reviews, but I can hardly find anything positive about my experience with this restaurant. First of all it was extremely noisy. My friend and I had to yell to understand one another. The music was very loud especially combined with the unfavorable acoustics. The seating was horrible. I was already glued to my table, but...

Average food.No ambiance to write home. Very basic. A place nothing to write home about. The owner it look like was the waiter.He moved with authority but really he can really try to smile and be friendlier as the prices are not cheap.

We stumbled in here because Hap-Hmm is closed on weekends. I can't complain about any of the food—we got the sampler and polished everything off—although I also couldn't say that it was special in any way. The service was adequate although it was regularly hard to catch the main waiters' eyes. The best element was the old greek guys playing... More

One of our best meals in Amsterdam. The food is great, and the owner is extremely warm and friendly. He served us food, even when it was almost the closing time. And that too with a smile. It is tucked away from the tourist buzz, and is most frequented by the locals.
