Description: Waves Greek Cafe n 'Restaurant Amsterdam is located in the center, near the Leidseplein, City Theatre and the De La Mar Theatre. In Amsterdam, where many Greek restaurant does his best to look like a typical island taverna, jumps Waves in the Leidseplein neighborhood, out because of the emphasis on taste, personal hospitality and conviviality instead of Aegean colors, fishnets and Olympian gods. "In an area awash with Greek restaurants That Do a pretty routine island-taverna impersonation, Waves stands out for putting more emphasis on taste and less on dazzling Aegean colors, fishing nets, and the Olympian deities. Its single room is modern, restrained in notes decor, and softly lit. The specialties - afelia (lamb cubes in coriander-and-wine sauce), moussaka, kleftiko (oven-baked lamb), and others - are not much different in principle from Those of other local Greek restaurants, but are gene rally better prepared and served - which, after all, is difference enough.Tip "Gyros" only in Amsterdam. Waves restaurant you are welcome to enjoy fresh food, good wine and friendly service. Our chefs can draw from a wide range of fresh fish n meat. If you are not a fish lover, then there are also meat, Gyros and vegetarian dishes that you can order.

“Great restaurant in a pleasant atmosfere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Οne of my best food experience in Amsterdam. Loved the Mousaka and the Souvlaki. The owner Giorgos is very polite and wants every customer to be fully satisfied.

I would reccomend it to my friends also since we spend a lot of our nights there with good music and nice food !

“My experience in Greek Waves Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Reccomended... I am living in Amsterdam for over 2 years and I have visited most of the restaurants...In Greek Waves I had the most delicious experience

The food was truly tasty. I had the dolmas and a gyro souvlaki which have been very well cooked and i really enjoyed my night there. The area is renovated and I would suggest it to everybody who want to have a really nice Greek restaurant experience!!!

“Everything to be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

This hotel is located on the square where all cuisines can be found (including one other Greek where the reviews are the worst), but... there are "but's"
Disliked the fact that this Hotel kind for runs a food at your door delivery, including from other restaurants, which the exit door never stops, with deliveries from other restaurants, and from the motorcycle distributors collecting the food for delivery.
The price I was quite for surprised, the average is from 5,50€ to 15€ per person, I ordered a 5 specials for 2 persons by 22€, and after all it was 22€ per person?!?!
Staff is friendly, but spend most of the time taking care of external deliveries, the person who spends more time at the tables have some problems talking in English (manages enough to attend to requests).
It's OK, but I've been in better greeks (outside Amsterdam)
