Dionysos moved to the Pest bank of the River Danube on New Year's Eve 1993 and has since delighted the dwellers of our city with delicacies of Greek cuisine and delicious wine of its vineyards.The air is filled with the fragrance of char-grilled meats and fishes, fresh-cut vegetables and crispy-baked homestyle bread. Thanks to the friendly atmosphere, diners chit-chat casually around the tables, which blends pleasantly into the melodies of Greek music playing in the background.It is good to be in this restaurant. The pampering feeling of authentic entertainment accompanies the guests from the moment they enter up until they leave. We hope you visit us soon so that we may entertain you for a few hours here in little Greece of Budapest!

Lovely food - dreadful wine

I've got nothing but good to say about this restaurant when it comes to the food, the ambience and the all round experience. Except for the fact that the wine is really poor. I've had good greek wines from many of the islands. I'd remove Retsina from pretty much any wine list, but there are... read more

Food was delicious and the staff was all very friendly -- which is not something you see too often in Budapest. Definitely recommended.

The food was good, the house red and white wines were very good. We ordered the cold variety appetizer and pita (very good)! We also ordered the med salad (very good) and the sea food Shrimp,salmon and calamaris on the spit (a little over seasoned, too much salt), but still good. The service was great!

Haven't been here for some time, but made a welcome return. Nothing has changed, as usual the food is spot on. I had Sea Bass with salad and my wife had the Giros. We both had desserts and coffees. The staff made us feel very welcome and all in all I would have to say the evening was perfect.
