Description: 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!

“Food is delicious and plentiful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

This taverna is bright, cheerful and clean. The waiters were friendly and helpful in making food choices. They brought us a complimentary fish starter whilst our own selections were being prepared. The food was excellent and the portions were on the large side! After a starter and main, we were both too full for dessert. However we were served with a complimentary custard dessert which my husband managed anyway! He was particularly impressed with the Gentlemen's washroom. He said he has never been in a restaurant washroom where there are razors, shaving foam and aftershave!!!
This is great value for money and I would recommend it for food and service.

“Great restaurant in Budapest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Enjoyed a really good meal here during our stay in Budapest. Service was excellent and food was well cooked and plentiful. Lots of nice touches, such as complimentary bread and dips to start and a complimentary fresh fruit platter at the end of the meal. Our waiter was also very knowledgeable of gluten free dishes which I found to be a real positive and made the dining experience much more enjoyable for me having an intolerance to gluten. Atmosphere in the restaurant was welcoming and relaxed and toilets were excellent, absolutely spotless again with lots of nice little touches. Overall, we really enjoyed our evening here, and can't really fault this restaurant. The only thing I would say, is that the food is not 100% typically Greek, but very near to it. A welcome change from Hungarian food and very good value for money.

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We had a superb Sunday lunch at Dionysos. We have ordered plates to share (the two person plates were more than enough for three).
Very important: try not to be completely full before the desert :-) because they are very delicious.

“It's not just gyros :-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We wanted to eat greek food and decided to visit this restaurant after many years again. 3 persons couldn't finish a mixed appetizer plate and the meat plate for two. It was not just delicious but also a lot. The staff was friendly and we didn't regret relying on the recommendations. We will definitely come back!

“The best place to eat in my time in Budapest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

The food was delicious, the staff was lovely, I had such a wonderful night! I will never forget that night! The staff are really caring and kind and you can see how every detail in this restaurant is thought to give you an excellent time. Even in the WC we can find free tooth picks, tampons and sanitary pads. I found it just amazing! I will definitely go back if I go to Budapest again and I wish I had a restaurant like that, where I am living! Congratulations to the lovely staff and keep up the good work.
