Despite the car park being busy (there is an attendant to direct cars to free spaces) and the fact that we hadn't pre-booked a table we were pleasantly surprised to be immediately shown to a free table.

Feels like home and even better! We stayed in Giessen Germany for a week and we tasted food at lots of restaurants. Irodion is by far the best one, compared to all the cuisines of the town! You have to taste the amazing gyros, mpifteki and the mind blowing Greek tzatziki! Tears of joy may come!

Great restaurant, food came quickly and wasn't so expensive as expected. Super service, great food, nice decoration, no wonder it was full of people even being outside of the city.
