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!

Great food; the Gyros was delicious! They also had a great selection of wines, and the service was great. The location was nice and central, and the restaurant made us feel like we were in Greece, a great athmosphere! Would definitaly recommend the restaurant to everyone reading this! Good value as well :)

I was looking forward to dining here following the positive reviews and comments but following our visit, I don't understand why this rated so high... The positives; location and interior are great. Centrally located and quaintly reminiscent of Santorini. Service was good, not great. The negatives; all our dishes were either dry, flavourless or overcooked. We had keftedes, dolmades and... More

I am an Australian born Greek and while we were in Budapest, decided to visit this restaurant given the excellent reviews. Was I disappointed..... On the positive, the service is very efficient and friendly and the interior of the restaurant is excellent. But this is where it ended for me. For entree we had meatballs, haloumi cheese and dolmades -... More

I was in this restaurant for a dinner with my colleagues. The portions are quite big and the food is amazing. Is the best Greek food I have ate outside Greece until now. The cheese platter as a starter is very good, but a big portion (good option to share - 2 persons). For the main I had octopus, very... More

Dear Nadiya Thank you for the positive and negative feedback. In regard of the music, some speakers are closer to certain tables so the music is louder there compared to others. On the busy hours as the restaurant gets louder, the music is louder as it would be in a Greek taverna. In your next visit, we would be more... More

We booked a table in advance but arrive to the restaurant 30 min before the reservation time. The table was proposed to us immediately (it was table on the terrace) and we start our dinner. Service was very good. We ordered grilled fish which serves with salad and potatoes purée. It was good, but purée was cold. My husband had... More

My partner and I have been to this restaurant once before. It was not a good experience then, but giving it one more chance tonight, it was absolutely appalling. The service is a total shambles. We ordered two main course dishes which never arrived. After asking the waiter who has a major attitude problem why were we waiting so long,... More

Simple Mediterranean decor which just makes you feel like you're in Greece. The service is good, which didn't remind me of Greece :-). The food is pretty good.
