“First meal”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

Just left Amsterdam to head to Prague so prices are significantly different. Reasonable value got Amsterdam, but really lovely food. Slightly odd that the food came with chips as we don't normally get that in the Greek restaurants we visit, but that's just bring picky. Definitely would suggest going here for a nice meal. Can get very busy so be prepared to sit, it's worth it.

“Fab Food”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Just back from dinner here on our fist night in Amsterdam. We got a great 2 courses and tea deal for €14.75. We really enjoyed our dinner and service was great too. Waiters much less pushy and polite than other neighbouring restaurants. We thought the food was of a very high standard and would eat here again.

“Good Greek food”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

I dined at the Zorba De Griek hoping to get a good taste of Greek cuisine. The ambiance and service were alright, nothing great to write home about. I had a three course meal with tomato soup as the starter, main course with grilled chicken, gyros and fries with tzatziki followed by coffee towards the end. The food was good especially the gyros which was fantastic. I did not find the price to be too high and I found the food to be good value for the money spent, though my friends were a tad disappointed. Nevertheless, every person has his own taste and the food here suited mine. Definitely worth a try.

“Probably one of the worst Greek restaurants around”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Very much regretted eating here. Quality of the ingredients was generally very poor and most things did not taste fresh at all (more like the dips and instant meals you get at the supermarket). Part of the kitchen is in sight and the restaurant has no qualms about putting the microwave in pride of place, and in fact using it constantly throughout the evening. So if you don't mind instant rubbish out of the microwave, this is the place for you.
Very expensive compared to its competitor restaurants nearby (which are not great but better than the dire quality of this one).

“So good we did it twice”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

We are fans of Greek food and living in Ireland where Greek restaurants are rare,we make the most of any opportunity to go Greek that arises.
The decor here is par for the course,lots of blue and white and tourist office posters.
The elderly waiters do a good job and are up to date on the economic crisis at home and abroad.We were here on 2 midweek nights and had interesting and varied conversations with both owners/waiters.
Much more convivial than their Dutch counterparts.
The food was the usual Greek fare.
The lamb chops were very good and salads excellent.
Chicken souvlaki and creamy tzatziki also good.
They had my favourite dessert: baklava.While not the best version ever, it was very nice with excellent coffee.
Wine list pretty short, but adequate.
