On our recent visit to Amsterdam it was good to see that Aphrodite is unchanged in both the quality and value of its food, and the warmth of its welcome. We shared the mixed starter and then had some simply grilled fish and calamari. It was as good as we remembered from when we lived in the city, when this was one of our favourite places. The menu is varied, the service is charming and unhurried, and the atmosphere is gezellig.

In a street full of "tourist" restaurants there is one excellent exception. Aphrodite, it has been here for more then 30 years and I have been eating here dozens of time. The reason is simple: the quality of the food is high, the price more then reasonable, wines perfect and honest.
It's a small restaurant and when you are inside you think you are in Greece, the terrace outside is cute and welcome with nice weather.
Go here, you won't be disappointed and on top of it all Loes the name of the owner is one of the most friendly hosts you will ever meet, so you will feel at home in a minute.....
One last thing ! bring cash no credit cards or other cards.

The restaurant is very dark, albeit cozy and the hostess is friendly. We ordered the mixed grill, which was very good and plenty to eat, especially meat. After the meal, we were offered cupcakes to celebrate the 2nd birthday of the hostess' dog.

Tiny restaurant, great atmosphere, friendly staff, and amazing food. We learned these are Greek family recipes passed down though generations and you could tell! If you like Greek food, seek this place out and enjoy!

I have been coming here since I was a little kid and I was in Amsterdam. Loes (hostess and owner) is a very nice friendly woman. The atmosphere is very nice and the tables and chairs sit like you are in Greece, which make the experience even better. The food is really good, they have a Greek cook who makes the meals in the kitchen. The bathrooms are ready for an upgrade, but you can still do your think there.

I would not recommended going here when there is a big guy serving here. He is really slow and does not really pay attention to his guests. I heard several people complaining about him.

Also make sure you bring cash money, because you are not able to pay here with debit or creditcard! (This will change in 2013 though, the owner told me they will install a debit/creditcard)
