As a Greek living in Holland this is the only place makes me feel like home. Great atmosphere, original Greek flavors in good price and very friendly stuff!!! Also the location is very nice. At the center of Leiden in front of a beautiful canal. For sure I'll go again!!!

I keep coming back here year after year because the food is always good. I have tried some of the other Greek restaurants in town, but this one is the best.

The food is awesome and the portions are really generous. The waiters are very friendly. We have been there many times, it is the best restaurant in town. Stew dishes are really good.

After a friendly welcome, we were directed to our table in the nicely situated setting, which makes you feel a bit like Greece. We ordered a starter and a main course, which were both very tasty, especially the shrimps were very good. The service was very friendly and warm.

The food is excellent, particularly the grills and the Greek gyros. The thing I like the most is the Greek beer they have, like Fix and Mythos which go great with meat.

We went there because it serves large portion. That's ture. If you love Icecream, you will be satisfied with such a big portion. But the grills are too dry and the traditional wine is not recommended.

The service was perfect. We had a mixed starter plate, Zaziki, Moussaka, Olives, and, and much more followed by Gyros, Mixed Grilled Plate. Whatever... More

We were tourists stopping by the city of Leiden for dinner on Easter Sunday. Before we stumbled upon Delphi, we had stopped by at another restaurant. We were ignored. Then we followed our noses to end up in Delphi. No reservations, restaurant was full and yet they managed to squeeze us in. Extremely friendly service and very delicious food. Extremely... More
