Due to sad epidemic situation our Restaurant is closed indefinitely. We wish you good health, take care of each others. P.s.:We will inform you about the possible date of re-opening. A little Greece on the riverbank of the Danube... 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 home style bread. Thanks to the friendly atmosphere, diners chit-chat casually around the tables, which blends pleasantly into the melodies of Greek music playing in

We wanted to try the place for long time. It was a bit disappointing. The meats were quite good, but the fish plates were below average (dry and tasteless). The service was kind, prices would be OK, if quality would raise.

The restaurant is quite busy so if dont book a table you might expect to wait a bit to be seated. If you're looking for quality fish dish and typical greek style, look no further. This is perfect place to dine out with friends or...as a couple. Anything on a płatne is first class. Excellent calamari, cheese, veggies, fish and it's nicely served. When you walk in you feel you're in Santorini, they have even mouth wash and dental floss in the toilet - small details but it proves the quality of the place. Definitely to come back again. P.S. Staff enormmously pleasant and helpful!!More

We had seen this restaurant the night before dining and it looked busy so we decided to try it. We got to the restaurant and was seated. After this we noticed all the women were getting roses on the way in and I hadn’t been...given one, not the end of the world but would have been a nice touch. We didn’t get given a menu for at least 10mins then to be given a piece of paper so we could view the menu online, a good idea considering the current Covid situation. The waiter had been to the table next to us numerous time and it took for them to tell the waiter they need to come to us. We eventually ordered and then waited well over an hour for our food. The people next to us had 3 courses served in the time we got our food. We made it clear that we weren’t happy at the end and it wasn’t until then we were offered things but it was too late by this point we were disappointed. The food was really good but not worth the wait and wasn’t enjoyed because we had waited so long!More

We had a perfect dinner here. The food was excellent. The service was way more beyond our expectations. We got free appetizer and watermelon after dessert. Definitely 5*, no question. And almost forgot, I got a flower at the end.

Situated on the road side over looking the movement of the river Danube. Greek food to our best of knowledge and the place has been made to look very greek, the service team serving also were very fluent in what they were serving us and...the variety was just phenomenal. Little pricey but worth the money. We sat in the outside area, they had shawls provided and also had some heating but we enjoyed the cold.More

This is a very nice Greek restaurant that is on the street that borders the Danube. We found it somewhat by accident since we were looking for an Italian restaurant and it was across the street. We split an appetizer of spanakopita and then ordered...our entrees of gyros (which was chicken instead of the more traditional beef) and bougiourdi which was 4 types of cheese served with rice. We had a nice bottle of Hungarian white wine (Cserszegi) with dinner and were quite full after eating. As a result, we did not need dessert but there were many other diners enjoying their desserts. We'd definitely come back here. It feels like family dining both in service and food quality.More

A fantastic meal, absolutely stuffed. So much choice. Service brilliant. The toilets were very futuristic to say the least and so very clean.

I have never had it at Taverna Dionysos but I know they have it in the menu. And if the frappe is as good as the food they serve, you will love it :)
