We ate twice in this super restaurant on our recent visit to Amsterdam. I just wish I could have brought the restaurant home with me. The owner, Loes Heemeijer, is delightful and nothing was too much trouble for her guests. The food is superb, simple but full of flavour. The style is Greek but with Dutch influence, the Veal stew,... More

If this was in NYC, there would be a line out the door. In Amsterdam its a neighborhood locale where the owner and the guests all know each other. Wonderful take on Greek cuisine in a interesting area. The locale is filled with dining options but seems missed by the tourists.

We visited Aphrodite with Dutch friends on the basis of a Dutch website recommendation. We were not disappointed. The service was so friendly and the staff could not have done more for us. The waitress moved seamlessly between Dutch and English for our mixed group. The food was delicious and home-style. I would certainly go there again.

We have been going to the Greek Restaurant since 2011....it's probably our favorite local place in Amsterdam....although it's located in the touristy area of Leidseplein; it is just far enough away from the many restaurants that it is set apart. The interior is charming, charming, charming. Small, intimate, lovely. The owner, Loes greets everyone with a big smile and usually... More

On our recent visit to Amsterdam it was good to see that Aphrodite is unchanged in both the quality and value of its food, and the warmth of its welcome. We shared the mixed starter and then had some simply grilled fish and calamari. It was as good as we remembered from when we lived in the city, when this... More

In a street full of "tourist" restaurants there is one excellent exception. Aphrodite, it has been here for more then 30 years and I have been eating here dozens of time. The reason is simple: the quality of the food is high, the price more then reasonable, wines perfect and honest. It's a small restaurant and when you are inside... More

The restaurant is very dark, albeit cozy and the hostess is friendly. We ordered the mixed grill, which was very good and plenty to eat, especially meat. After the meal, we were offered cupcakes to celebrate the 2nd birthday of the hostess' dog.

Tiny restaurant, great atmosphere, friendly staff, and amazing food. We learned these are Greek family recipes passed down though generations and you could tell! If you like Greek food, seek this place out and enjoy!

I have been coming here since I was a little kid and I was in Amsterdam. Loes (hostess and owner) is a very nice friendly woman. The atmosphere is very nice and the tables and chairs sit like you are in Greece, which make the experience even better. The food is really good, they have a Greek cook who makes... More
