Description: 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!

We really enjoyed visiting this restaurant on Wednesday evening. The staff were very welcoming, great service and the food was excellent - we will certainly return to the Taverna when we return to Budapest.

So, I arrived in Budapest this afternoon-had no idea where to go for dinner-so, of course I relied on TA for advice! It just so happened this place was only 10 min walk from my hotel and I love Greek food! Went to Santorini 2yrs ago and have wanted to get back here ever since. Well, Taverna Dionysos was just...

We enjoyed a really nice meal at the Dyonisos. The bifteki and the handmade lemonade were wonderful. Service was outstanding and decoration very nice.

Spent a week in Budapest and this was the best restaurant we we visited. Food was very good, service was spot on and the waiter really fun. The place was packed too. The outdoor seating was just being set up the first week of April so we didn't get a chance to sit outside on the banks of the Danube... More

good atmosphere, friendly waiters, tasty food, inexpensive, clean restaurant... only the service was very slow, but since we were tourists and had time, it wasn't such a problem :) i definitely recommend it!

The restaurant has 4 levels, each slightly different to the other, the restaurant was heaving but as we booked we had a lovely table on the top floor. Our waiter was very pleasant and spoke good English. Our starters were fantastic, the calamari and the halloumi were personal favourites, along with the complimentary homemade bread and chick pea dip. On... More

Very good food. Fresh vegetables. very good olives, very good olive oil, a decent octopus (if you consider it is in Budapest is even a good octopus!), good lemonade. Clean and nice. People friendly, Greek style. I recommend the place for a light meal in Budapest.

My family and I enjoyed the Taverna, tasty food, a very accommodating staff, comfortable ambiance...what more could you ask for? The restaurant was crowded, but that is not surprising. MAKE RESERVATIONS. I would return to the Taverna again, and probably again and again. High;y recommended.

In Budapest for 3 days. Friends recommended the restaurant as they had eaten there the night before. Friday night, hadn't booked and restaurant packed. they were very helpful and squeezed us in saying that we could have the table for 1.5 hours which suited us. We could have been walking into a restaurant on Santorini. Very bright, white walls, and... More
