I have eaten in many Greek restaurants in Europe (including Greece) and the USA, and I enjoy Greek food very much. I was very pleased with the Grieks Restaurant Dafne (note that the name is currently misspelled as "Dafni" in Tripadvisor,com, and I will try to convince them to correct the spelling). We ate at Restaurant Dafne twice on a recent trip to Sittard and sampled a range of their food.

Both meals at Restaurant Dafne started with friendly greetings and complementary small glasses of Ouzo (licorice liquor). While downing the Ouzo, we perused the menu and (unlike an earlier reviewer), we were not at all disconcerted to see many of our favorite Greek dishes.

While waiting for our meals, we noticed that the decor was pleasing and sophisticated. The dining room boasts rock wall accents, recessed art alcoves, and clean-lined furniture.

The first night we shared a Dafne Schotel (Plate) for two, which consisted of two pork cutlets, two ground meat patties, plenty of shaved gyro meat, four large grilled prawns, 6 or 8 large fried squid rings, and at least that many mussels. All of these were well-spiced and expertly grilled, with the squid being particularly delectable: delicately crispy yet tender. In addition, the meal included a large plate of french fries, two small scoops of rice in tomato sauce, and a plate of salad.

The second night I had an order of moussaka. The ratio of ground meat to eggplant was a little different than I like (I love eggplant and like to see a large amount compared to the ground beef), but it was still very tasty. My husband started with a choriatiki salad (as it's spelled in the menu), which was fresh, nicely dressed, and chock full of tomatoes, cucumbers, feta cheese, and olives. He then followed up with kleftiko, which consisted of lamb, green beans, and potatoes in a casserole of rice cooked with tomato sauce and feta cheese. He ate every last bit of the tender lamb and, while he normally tries to steer away from a lot of rice to limit his carbohydrate intake, he was very impressed by the combination of lamb juice, cheese and tomato sauce infusing this rice. Both meals included small side salads, french fries and a small scoop of tomato rice.

The servers work well as a team; each one scanned nearby tables to see if anyone needed anything as they were passing through the dining room. Thus, several servers attended us and each one was friendly and helpful. On our second visit, they remembered that my husband didn't speak Dutch and unobtrusively gave him an English-language menu.

The meal ended with another complementary shotglass of liquor, this time a cherry liquor. We will definitely return to Grieks Restaurant Dafne when we are next in Sittard.

We love Greek food and like to try new places. This place was unfortunately very disappointing. We love sittard and eating in the square so they have the atmosphere going for them but there were three of us and not one of us had an enjoyable meal and we a are not that picky or hard to please. The appetizers were decent but each one of our meals have several components that we disliked. It's normal for a few things to not be up to par but poor food and not so good service will keep us away. Here's hoping they get better. Hope you have better luck if you go.

After a long time I tried again a Greek cuisine restaurant. Unfortunately nothing has changed. Also Dafni has the same menu as every greek restaurant in the world. The food is not bad, but nothibg special. This restaurant is fully replaceable by other Greek restaurants in the neighbourhood. However it is packed on a Monday evening, do somehow average is attractive to the crowd. I ordered gambas with spaghetti. It was served with rice an French fries. Long live the carbohydrates
