A little Greece on the riverbank of the Danube... 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 home style 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!

Nice authentic Greek restaurant in BP. They have good lemonade drinks as well! My friend and I received great service. The decor inside is very Greek as well, which one expects at a Greek restaurant!

It's simple; 1. The restaurant is beautiful. The inside has been sculpted into a Greek paradise. From the large white building to the plates and cutlery it keeps on theme. 2. The food was delicious! We had the sharing starter and ate it all. Great dips. Mains were huge, Although the prices could be considered expensive for Budapest, you definitely... More

Lovely restaurant with a 5 start service. Very good Greek food and decent portion sizes. Décor inside made you feel like you were in Greece. Waiter was so friendly and knowledgeable. Anyone in Budapest looking for Greek cuisine should 100% visit this place.

The service was great, staff were super friendly. The food was amazing! My boyfriend had bbq'd pork stuffed with cheese that he really enjoyed and I had... More

Looking for a perfect meal in Budapest? Look no further! From the moment we walked in, the service, atmosphere, and overall experience was excellent! And we didnt even get the food yet. The seafood soup was prepared to order and was delightful. Gyros and shrimp skewers were equally as good! It is a must visit in Budapest! Would recommend to... More

I went to this gorgeous little restaurant based on the trip advisor reviews. From the minute I stepped in I felt as though I was in Greece. The staff went above and beyond to look after me, which was lovely as I was dining alone. The food was spectacular - some of the best Greek food I've ever had. The... More

My wife and I first visited this lively restaurant in 2006 (review on Yelp), so we were delighted to find that service, atmosphere and food are still great. Mind you, the menu seems to have expanded somewhat, so finding your favourite dish can take a while, even when it's translated into your own language. We loved the impeccable but unobtrusive...

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
