What a great place! I've been there so many times and there hasn't been once that I could have found something negative to say about this lovely Greek restaurant! The food is absolutely spot on and everyone working there is so nice and polite. Every time I got offered something from the chef's choice (deserts and entrées) and it was... More

We found this by accident as we were exploring the city and decided to stay for an early dinner. As Vegetarians we know we can usually rely on the Greek's to feed us well and this restaurant did not disappoint. It is also nicely situated by the river and it was nice to sit outside on the terrace as the... More

We found this restaurant through TripAdvisor and thought we would try it one night. It was very close to our hotel. We did not have a reservation and waited a few minutes to sit on their patio. The staff was lovely and accommodating and the food was delicious! In fact, we went a 2nd time because we liked it so... More

As a regular business traveller to Budapest I wanted to try this place as the reviews were so good. However I was really disappointed as the whole meal was poor. The place itself is very 'kitsch' and a bit cheesy in terms of stereotypical Greek decor, not really my thing. Cocktails were watery. The menu was vast and the food... More

I can strongly recommend this as a very good neighbourhood restaurant. The interior is high ceilinged and decorated in colours redolent of the Greek Islands. The tables are nicely spaced out so you don't have to listen to your neighbours conversation. The restaurant is well staffed. All the staff look smart in their navy and white uniform. And they offer... More

Been there late in the evening just for a short stop and an easy eat, but finally we spent more than 2,5 hours. The food is good, service is just on time without bothering you to much and the red wine was full of flavors.

We really enjoyed a family meal at this lovely restaurant. The grilled meats were superb and service was really good. The vegetarian in the party was satisfied with a tasty artichoke dish.
