Locals took me here for an early dinner and it was excellent. I was grateful for their translation of menu items. Very good food and good local wines and beers.

Nice restaurant in the center of the city, where you can enjoy reasonably good Greek food. The prices are good (for Germany and compared with many other restaurants, with similar location). For 10-12 euro you can get meal with enough meat, French fries and side salad. I would highly recommend the Greek salad (actually it’s called differently there but if... More

Right in the centre of town, near the Old Bridge, yet plentiful and reasonably priced Greek food. If you have a big appetite, this is your venue of choice for substantial starters and mains. The welcome is very friendly too. Try the lamb shanks.

Seems to be a bit more Turkish than Greek...the gyro meat is chicken but it is absolutely delicious. Friendly staff, Ouzo to wash down your delicious meal. This is such a great place to eat!

This family run restaurant is cozy and the food is marvelous. Biggest problem is there was so much of it we couldn't eat it all. The lamb skewers with tomatoes, peppers and onions and kasseri cheese were "freakishly good" according to my wife. The Greek salad and my lamb sampler were also wonderful. Don't miss this place! Wonderful!
