Good Greek food (Cretan too). I love the octopus starter: The immediate cause of our visit, and of course to hear Yannis sing after dinner, enjoying some raki.

If you want to go to a little out of the way restaurant with great food, then this is for you. If you stay after the kitchen has closed, you will be treated to dancing and singing with Yiannis. A real gem.

What a great little local place. The grilled dishes, salad, bread were great. Very lightly flavored and not to heavy.

Real Greek food and music. The owners were absolutely lovely. We had six different appetizers and were totally stuffed after the dinner. Retsina was on the milder side, personally I prefer stronger flavour but maybe this is more popular with non-retsina enthusiasts. Pricing was reasonable.

This is a simple yet very cosy place, with the ultrawelcoming hearty hostess. They even use old fashioned electric non economy bulbs! Which adds to the warmth of the atmosphere. I enjoyed my time while eating simple yet fairly prepared muzaka. It was Monday, and the menu offer was for 9 euros, offering a decent plate of fresh vegetables followed... More

Really charming and cosy place to spend a night out. Great value on special menu, nice red wine. The restaurant is also very funny and the location is great. You have to go there at least once if you are in Amsterdam!

This restaurant looks very much like its owner: friendly and welcoming. The food is from Greece and Crete. You better be very hungry and not on a diet if you eat there, because the dishes are large and the stews quite heavy. Overall, I found it very good and will go again at my next visit in Amsterdam.

The place is a small Greek island in the midst of Amsterdam. Not easy to find, but your efforts will be reworded by warmest welcoming, that makes you feel as if you are at home, sweet home. Staff is very attentive and cheerful. Go for lamb stew - it is exceptional! I recommend this place if you are looking for... More

Dining on my own I was happy to find this little corner of Greece with warm welcome and true home cooked food. All rounded off by impromptu singing and complimentary Metaxa. Recommended.

This is a real Greek Taverna, from the colors to the furniture everything smells Greece. And the food is superb. The owners are probably from Crete as you can choose typical food from this charming isle, we had some fried squid rings and some typical meatballs in tomatoes sauce as starter, the rings were delicious and I'll come back just...
