I had a delicious meal here, my tour manager recommended it. The food was delicious, using fresh and tasty ingredients. I tried a Diethnes Special, a plateful of glorious Greek food, both satisfying and authentic. Service was fast, friendly. Loved it.

Went here for an anniversary dinner and was not at all disappointed. The atmosphere is amazing. So warm and friendly. The server we had was so nice and personable. We ate so much but did not regret our choices at all.

This is a salute to the traditional Greek dishes that have been popular through generations of Australians. The food is very good and very Greek. Service is excellent. A homely feeling to dining which I enjoyed do much.

...and that's the quality of the hand drier in the men's bathroom. Otherwise, outstanding. Got the full mezze, highly recommended. Wasn't just the food quality that was great, but the service too. Authentic Greek from A to B.

Why have we waited so long to try this great place? It is Sydney's longest running restaurant. Started in 1952, that's 64 years young! Passed down through the family.Came across it by chance when booking a friends catch up lunch. We loved the food, the wine, the ambience and the fantastic service from our waiter. John I think. Everyone agreed.... More

Haven't been to this restaurant for about 25 years. It was exactly the same, walking down the stairs bought so many memories. We used to eat here in out twenties. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Our food was delicious. The waiter helped us decide as it all looked so good we couldn't decide. The waiter recommended the mixed... More

I've been coming to this restaurant for close to 20 years, and I can't remember ever being disappointed. From business lunches, to casual gathering to dinner with my partner the place accommodates whatever you're looking for. Staff are always friendly and attentive and the food... well it's just to die for! I struggle to go past the lamb (cause it's... More

Have been visiting Diethnes since the late 1980s on and off and have always been able to rely on it for solid and reliable Greek comfort food. Last week I had the opportunity to take a friend who had never had greek before and we feasted on the tzakziki with pita bread, followed by the lamb with potatoes and a... More

This has been providing Sydneysiders with the authentic Greek experience for more years than I care to remember - and its decor, quality and service doesn't seem to have changed. Descending the stairs, one enters an old style atmosphere complete with Grecian columns, exposed timber-like beams and rustic walls. The tablecloths are "easy-wipe" and the printed menus contain all the... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
