“Authentic restaurant with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

We visited this restaurant several times and it is always pleasant with good food. The Greek kitchen does not strike us as very culinary, but this restaurant makes an exception, especially when you order one of the specialities written on the blackboard. This time we had the chicken thighs with spinach and feta sauce and the beef stifado. Both excellent. Start with one of the small mezze plates and end with a pudding, with wine totaling no more than 35 euros per person. Note the personal service by the owner and his wife.

“Lovely atmosphere, with friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

This was our second visit to this friendly Greek restaurant. The menu is not extensive, but their food is well cooked and the service is second to none. Definitely worth a visit!

“Great Greek in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012 via mobile

I have to admit I'm biased as for five plus years I dined at the greek taverna at least twice a month. The land is exceptional. The musaka is great. Hummus fantastic. Only challenge was the fresh duck which still had gun shot in it. Try the Greek red wines and it makes doe a nice reasonably priced evening. Enjoy!
