Above and beyond the regular Greek meat dish

This is by far the best Greek restaurant in Leiden, and surroundings. They do offer the regular dishes with giros and souflaki, and they do them well, but there is so much more to be had here. The stews are fabulous and any dish with the special "corfu sauce" is something you'll be coming back for... read more

From beginning to end the service was flawless. Actually greeted with a smile & set the tone for spending an evening in the company of such friendly staff. Even the chef served our meal with a smile and quick chat. From knowledge of the menu to attentiveness to drinks, it really makes a difference. Thanks Mike! The restaurant is exotically... More

Went there this past Saturday for date night after having been away for a lmost 2 years. It was an early dinner so it was realtively quiet. We ordered the Delphi dish for two and tthis came with fries and a salad,It was too much so we took a doggy bag home. Great prices.

Greek dining is nothing too crazy or sensational, but it's upfront and tasty and this is exactly what Delphi provides. A no frills menu with the great grill meals and their moussaka is one of the better ones I've had at Greek restaurants. Overall a great experience, nice cosy interior and the free salad bar, although it could have a... More

We chose Delphi because of the other good reviews and now have an opportunity to add one more. The decor give the feel that you are in Greece, with faux trees and vines decorating the interior which is painted in the style of an old Grecian village. English menus were available and there were an overwhelming number of choices to... More

The dishes are really good and big compared to the prices. The place is nice, sometimes a little bit crowded but you can have a chat without problems. During the week is better. In the summer is a little bit too warm. They accept only credit cards and cash. Look: PIN or debit cards are not allowed!

I am a regular client of Delphi and always bring dutch and international friends to Delphi for both the food as well as the happy athmosphere, created by the pure greek staff. The food is usually good quality and the ouzos as a welcome aperitif set the tone! After a quick last minute in Kos whereI did not experience these... More

This place was a very pleasant surprise. We had a barbecued lamb dish for two which came with a few side plates and unlimited salad bar included. We also had a starter, which was completely unnecessary. In fact, the only problem with this place was the lack of advice given to us by the waiter. Why didn't he tell us... More
