We were staying at the "Wyndham Apollo" in Amsterdam. While walking up to the Rijks Museum we found a wonderful Greek restuarant. The owner/waiter welcomed us into his restaurant in English which we were happy to hear. The owner's warm & welcoming personality was great as he answered our questions as well a chatted with my wife about how the... More

A lovely family restaurant. The food was really great, suitable both for vegetarians and meet/fish lovers. Everything was fresh and tasty and you could feel that it was made with care and love. The service was very friendly and welcoming. We will defiantly come again!

Tucked away in a quieter area but worth the journey. Very friendly staff, and a patient owner who explained all the dishes to us. Everything top notch, from starters to excellent lamb specials. They even threw in a complimentary plate of desserts for my daughter's birthday. A lovely relaxing evening, we would go back again.

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.... More

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!

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighbourhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
