“Too expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

The food is moderate but it is much too expensive. We went twice and decided not to go anymore. The interior is classic. You cannot get excited :).

This place has a very original name and moderate food (not so fresh and the meat is well grilled but too much seasoning kills it flavour). The service have forgotten what service is all about: they don't smile just do their work and claim a huge amount of money for very little food.

I don't like this mentality. No effort at all for the customer.

Hello,

My Name is Vallina I am the co owner of "De Griekse Frituur". And daughter of the owners.

I was very hurt by your comment!

You claim that it is not so fresh?
Well I invite you in to our kitchen, when we cut and season the meat.
when we clean and make the anjovis, when we clean and cut the calamare.
When we wash the salade.
When we make our zaziki and tartaar.
When we make our Mousaka and stuffed paprika from scratch.
When we put op the Giros, layer by layer of fresh meat.
When we make our Souvlakia.

I Mean it you are very welcome.

And in witch other "frituur" you know you only have to order take you drinks, sit down and relax.
The food is brought to your table. (sorry for the smile, but 16y old students have lots to learn at that age. And be greatfull they didn't scrue up your meal)
Where you have iron cutlery...

Think about that.

Your review was very hurtfull.
Beacause it isn't true.
We work so hard every day, to make our custumors happy.

Next time, if you have a comment, say it to us personal, and don't go writing on the internet...

Kind Regards

“Good food, but a kind of self - service !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We went there with a coupon we received from a friend .
Had a special plate.
Various sorts of meat, calamari, little fish, greek cheese , tsasiki and a little bit of salad.
Food was very good, but you havze to get your drinks and ... yourself at the counter.
That 's not so pleasant.

Hi
Thank you for your nice comment about our food.

But let me explain the self service.

It is still a "Frituur".
You had the coupon so you must be belgian.
I think you know the concept of frituur than.

Look at it this way.
In witch Frituur you only have to order, take your drinks, pay, sit down and relax?
Your food is brought to your table...
You get iron cutlery...

Don't forget it's a Frituur and not a Restaurant.

I you don't want to do noting at all.
I invite you to our restaurant next door, where i do it all for you :-)

Hope you appriciate my respons, and try to look at it that way.

Andy hope to see you again sometime

Kind Regards
Vallina
