“Always great Greek food!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

This is my favourite Greek restaurant. I've been here yesterday for the 6th of 7th time and again it was great! Whether you go on a saturday night or a tuesday night, the hotel is always crowded. It also has been renovated with nice paintings on the wall and more light. Entrances are always good (keftedes!), the main courses are big and tasteful plates (Irodion schotel is nice but also the boerenschotel, souflaki chicken also very good) and the deserts are good (yesterday I decided to go for something else than the traditional Dame Blanche or Banaan Royal so I had ice cream with kiwi which was amazing, see foto). The owner always offers us a drink on the house at the end, Dutch people love that ;-) Defenitly recommendable this restaurant, it is in the centre near the kaasmarkt. I always park a bit outside the centre. For 3 euros you can park there all day and its only a ten minutes walk. If you go there make a reserveration because it might be full. Enjoy!

“Late night haven”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

One of the few establishments in Alkmaar open for a weary traveller delayed by storms. Excellent service, good menu, prompt service, ouzo, what more could you want?

“Excellent Greek Restaurant”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

We were lucky to find this restaurant on a rainy night in June. The staff spoke very little English, but the person we assumed to be the manager came and helped us through the menu. Service was great, the food was outstanding! It was a busy place on a Friday night, but we had no problems getting our food without a long wait. Definitely a place we will return to should we ever get the chance to return to Holland!

“Nothing special”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

Went on a Tuesday evening in June 2012, we hadn't booked but despite the restaurant being busy we got a table straightaway, and we were supplied with a complementary glass of ouzo. Took a while before we were given a menu whick was in Greek and Dutch. When I tried to ask a waiter a question re the food on offer I was waved at and he said soon soon without listening which was irritating.
They didn't do kleftico which would have been my first choice however the waitress suggested a lamb stifado. It was fine but nothing special. It came with a greek salad which was tasteless apart from the feta, sounds sad but the chips were lovely!. The restaurant is large but you do feel as if your table is private. All in all an ordinary experience.
