While visiting Sydney, my wife and I sought out a Greek restaurant one evening and found Diethnes, and we are so glad that we did. We truly enjoyed sharing one of their multi-course meals, sampling so many wonderful delights. The spanakopita was, without a doubt, the best I have ever had and the lamb was fall-off-the-bone tender while the octopus... More

This is a favourite dining spot for us when we come to Sydney and want to be somewhere classy but not "posh". The service is always superb and the food is tasty and traditional.

Visited Diethnes again recently and the food is as good as ever. Great tasting Greek meals, supper friendly staff, and good prices what more could possibly ask for. I be back next time I'm in Sydney

Original 1960's decor in this bustling underground restaurant. The food is authentically Greek, simple and tasty. There was a varied mostly Aussie wine list with the added bonus of some Greek wines to choose from. The service was wonderful including the original owner from the 50's and his descendants.

What a great restaurant. Old fashioned decor, old fashioned service and good quality food Right in the heart of then city, we went as a couple but the banquet menu is even better. Food came quickly but we were not rushed out at all. Just friendly and pleasant

Visited my favourite on Wednesday before going to the Keith Urban Concert and my son and i shared a calamari and a seafood pasta, our waiter Theo thoughtfully asked for our spaghetti to be divided into two bowls he said it would be too messy to try to divide it. The food is very reasonably priced i have been going... More

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.

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.
