2nd oldest Greek establishment in NL

Great salad bar, great service! Been eating here for years and easily one of my favorites in Leiden. There Moussaka is mouth watering and all there grill platters have never disappointed me once all this time.

We were tourists stopping by the city of Leiden for dinner on Easter Sunday. Before we stumbled upon Delphi, we had stopped by at another restaurant. We were ignored. Then we followed our noses to end up in Delphi. No reservations, restaurant was full and yet they managed to squeeze us in. Extremely friendly service and very delicious food. Extremely... More

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. When we want to... 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

I have never been disappointed at this place! The portions are very large and tasty so you can bring them home for lunch the next day :-) The staff is helpful and nice!

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!
