The food was great. The portions where large and the staff was friendly. We had an Apollo dish with only meat. We are not much of fish eaters. The meat was cooked well. I can recommend this place.

At the age of 10 or 11, going to the 'Griekse Frituur' with the parents was a blast to look out to. Now nearly 30 years later, the 'Griekse Frituur' is still the best authentic Gyros 'n Fries place around and a place we stull go to, now with my own family; and they love it. The place is family...

We always combine a visit to the Griekse Frituur with a movie at Cmine. This place has very tasty gyros with a royal portion of fries. Recommended!

The food is moderate but it is much too expensive. We went twice and decided not to go anymore. The interior is classic. You cannot get excited :). This place has a very original name and moderate food (not so fresh and the meat is well grilled but too much seasoning kills it flavour). The service have forgotten what service... More

We went there with a coupon we received from a friend . Had a special plate. Various sorts of meat, calamari, little fish, greek cheese , tsasiki and a little bit of salad. Food was very good, but you havze to get your drinks and ... yourself at the counter. That 's not so pleasant.
