Excellent food served by an excellent staff. A truly delicious dinner. The location is intimate, very cosy and very nicely decorated. The staff is great and very friendly. They offered chickpea spread on warm bread on the house. We ordered pita bread with tzatziki as starter and the grilled dish for 2 as second. The size of the dish is... More

There is plenty of choice on the menu of different Greek dishes, the food was piping hot with a great atmosphere. The... More

I really reccomend this Greek restaurant in Budapest. The location is in the centre of Pest, very characteristics, with typical Greek colours and furniture. Food is excellent: you can choose among starters, fish amd meat plates and the traditional Greek plates (pita, moussaka etc). I ate fish and it was very fresh and super tasty!!! Pita is really good also.... More

We save our trips to Taverna Dionysos for special occasions because we know we'll never be disappointed. Aside from an always warm welcome by the attentive staff,to the warm, authentically decorated restaurant, we always enjoy a complimentary taste treat and a complimentary aprés dinner item. In between, you will find many delightful, tasty menu items from which to choose. All... More

Went there for a fast dinner. Service was very friendly and the restaurant has a funny super greek theme with a waterfall by the entrance. Staff was cheerful, singing along the music. Got served food fast as we requested for it - were busy rushing to the movies. Ordered mackerel paste (to die for!!), fried calamaris with amazing dipping sauce,... More

We came here to celebrate our wedding anniversary this week. I'm vegetarian so wanted a break from the veggie alternatives for goulash and beef stew. This restaurant was delightful, right on the steps of the Danube next to Liberty bridge. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. We shared a cold plate to start and had to have an...

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 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!

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
