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!

“So-so.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

We had a light evening dinner at Taverna Dionysos. The tzaziki was good and the traditional greek salad was tasty. The greek white wine was very nice.

However, the service could definitely improve. The staff seemed to have a great time among themselves, but that came at the expense of the customers. We had to ask everytime to fill our glasses again.Average.....

“Great food, lovely restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I have just returned from a trip to Budapest and absolutely had to write about this place. We dined here on Saturday night - the restaurant was busy and had a great atmosphere. Both the service and food were excellent, and the complimentary dessert and flower for the ladies at the end of the meal just added to the experience. I can't recommend his place highly enough - a definite highlight of our stay in 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.
