I visited this restaurant a couple of times already and it's absolutely amazing. I haven't had any negative experience or anything that I could critize. The staff is nice and helpful, the selection of food is so wide that I had difficulties to choose from...the menu. The food is very tasty, the whole experience is perfect. I am very excited every time we go there.More

I'm completely baffled by the number of positive reviews for this restaurant -- I was torn between an overall rating of "Terrible" and "Poor." My friends and I were staying at a hotel around the corner, and looked forward to having some Greek food. Unfortunately,...the service was awful and the meal wasn't much better. Our waiter was condescending and unhelpful; after taking our order, we waited for nearly an hour before our dishes were served. During this time, he avoided eye contact and never bothered to apologize for the delay or assure us of when our dinners might arrive. I ordered the panko-breaded calamari, which was tasteless -- no seasoning whatsoever. One of my friends had a pasta dish that she compared to something prepared by Chef Boyardee. Ironically, after being ignored most of the night, we were offered roses as we left, which we refused. If you're in the mood for Mediterranean food, do yourself a favor and eat across the street at Trattoria Toscana. We dined there twice during a four-night stay in Budapest, and found the pastas and pizzas to be excellent!More

Great restaurant and food. Book ahead or you will be disappointed! Large portions of tasty food. Staff were very busy on our visit so we found ourselves a little forgotten which was a shame.

Came across accidentally so was a very good surprise. Good variety of dishes with the right taste and well spiced. A nice Mediterranean atmosphere. Service was polite and efficient. A high standard of cleanliness.

During a recent European trip we had the delight to have a meal at this restaurant. I almost hate to leave a review because it is so good. During our 3 week trip this was one of two of the best meals we had. Excellent...staff, food and service. We had the sea bass and it was delicious. They also have an excellent wine list. Great atmospher with both indoor and outdoor seating on the banks of the Danube. Doesn't get any better. Highly recommended.More

Tonight we went there to have dinner for two people. Unfortunately we had a terrible experience due to poor service. We had to wait over 25 minutes for someone to take our orders and another 30 to receive the one meal we ordered the whole...night. When we asked for recommendations, we were basically slapped with the menu, due to the waiter being stressed/overworked. We have noticed that the staff had clear tension between each other, which has also resulted in cursing. One of our meal had zero taste, even after trying to season it with what we had at the table, which was such a disappointment given the hype and price point of this place. To crown our dinner, we had to ask for the bill 3 times and wait 20 minutes before being able to pay. All in all, we were hoping for a much better experience, as we have heard good reviews of the place, but we were left really unimpressed, most likely not returning again. We hope the restaurant will sort out its staff, as they seemed pretty overwhelmed by the traffic they had to cover.More

I just had the worst experience ever as a tourist. I had to pay a bill of around 14800 HUF and I wanted to pay in €. The waiter told me I have to pay 52 €. Right now the exchange rate is at around...0.0025 € per 1 HUF, so the total amount was of 37 €. Basically the rest of 15 € were just a SCAM!More

If you want to experience a meal that you will remember, this is the place to go! Not only is the food amazing, but the service and kindness from the hosts really puts the cherry on top. If you are lucky you’ll even get to...see a traditional Menetes home, and that is something you should! Thank you so much we will come again next year! Our baby also loved the food:) PS: Order the stefado😍More

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 :)
