We went on a Sunday night, just by chance. Wish we'd gone somewhere else. The greek salad and house wine and service were OK, nothing special. Moussaka was bland and unappetising, stifado was mainly gristle and fat. The mains came with a weird selection of accompaniments; chips, rice and coleslaw (which was definately not fresh). We were suspicious when we heard the 'ding' of the microwave. Starter dishes were removed and instantly the mains arrived. Also, we were told to keep our cutlery from the salad starter instead of bringing us clean sets. I won't be going back.

My sister took me here when I visited in Spetember as it is one of her favorite local spots. It's a tiny, cozy place, packed with locals. The owner is the server and helps out in the kitchen too! Warm, funny man with a cheerful mustache. The tables are tiny with a rustic candle each. And the food - WOWZA. We got some kind of sampler-type platter of deliciousness. Literally everything on it was incredible. Glad I got to try this place...it was very memorable.

We passed the restaurant on our way to the apartement at the Noordermarkt. As we love greek food we decided to take our dinner there, and what can i say - it was a good choice. The food was very good and fresh cooked (vegetarian moussaka directly from the oven). The owner and his sister were really nice and friendly and there were 2 cute cats -Alex and Sokrates - who joined us while waiting for the dinner.

Next time again!!!!!!!!

Good choice of veggie foods. The salads there are lovely. The cookies are HUGE and delicious.

Ambience; a clean café with plenty of room upstairs.

Great place for lunch in the heart of the city.

Went to the restaraunt on Saturday night after reading the reviews on here, and being a lover of Greek food. Walking to the restaraunt , that is a little out of the centre (10 min stroll from station).we were passing a few little restaraunts which were all very busy. when we arrived was a little surprised to find only 2 couples in there. The De 2 Greiken is only small , but very cosy. The food was very nice. we had a shared starter for 2 and a main course for 2. not quite a meze but very nice all the same. We were made to feel very welcome and thouroughly enjoyed our evening.
would comfortabely reccommend to other TA members.
