I am an international traveler who grew up in Kassel and since years I visit Ilyssia with my family every time I am in Kassel. My last visit was in November and I even went 2 days in a row to have dinner with my family. The service is spectacular, not stiff like in a 2 star Michelin restaurant but... More

Restaurant with very good greek food as one does not expect in Germany. Friendly staff. Our recommandation is fish (seems to be as fresh as if the Mediterranian See is just around the corner). Very good wine (also white wines) and all that for reasonable price. Lovely atmosphere.

The food was excellent, very close to the original Greek taste (considering that each Greek restaurant in Germany and everywhere in the world has to match a bit to the taste of the people in the country and the ingredients are not original Greek)! I have tried fish, which was very fresh and nicely prepared. Appetizers and deserts were great... More

Good greek restaurant in Kassel, close to the Bergpark. Generous portions of gyros and zaziki are my favorites here. Paired with good greek white wines. Reasonable prices.

Nice outdoor seating for the summer months. Ordered a seafood appetizer and main courses. Unfortunately the appetizer was served at same time as main course, so we had to send it back. Main courses were good quality and nicely done. Tender beef filet and tasty lamb steaks. The place was busy but we had to wait way too long to... More

The food was good, straight forward, no fuzz. The wine -Grau Burgunder- perfect. The waiter terribly servile; kept asking if everything was allright, and kept filling up our glasses which were half empty. DON'T: Never fill up half empty glasses, waiter! And if you feel an unbearable urge to do so, still wait till a glass is completely empty, and... More

Food is good, no doubt. However, the waiters have no clue. Don't know how to serve and place plates, can't remember who ordered what and don't even note that only 4 out of 5 received their dish. Don't ask if you need more water and do not offer desert menu after the main course. Real let down. Get them trained... More

Not far from the famous Hercules monument and the beautiful park surrounding it, you´ll find this hidden gem in Kassel. It´s located on a charming cobbled street just around the corner from the main street. Friendly staff and high quality food in pleasant surroundings. The fried calamari was delicious and the sliced beef as tender as it gets. Moussaka was... More
