This is a pleasant, casual restaurant on one of the main streets in Sparta with a comfortable interior and delightful courtyard behind the restaurant, away from the noise of the street. The food is typical "home-made" and all dishes are plentiful and tasty. The cooking and wait staff are pleasant and friendly, and the service is excellent. An added bonus... More

Went to this place for dinner for a friends dinner while in Sparta. Understandably since it was winter a lot of the food was not available. Got the bolognese pasta and the sauce was very watery and the mince was not even very cooked. The spaghetti itself was cold. Wouldnt recommend eating here at all.

We had dinner in this restaurant after the advice of the concierge of our hotel in Sparta (Dioskouri)Dimitri. Well, he said his friend, owner of the restaurant, would do a special treatment and discounts for the hotel customers. Unfortunately it was not true. We paid the full price. And we met other people from the hotel...and then, Dimitri himself! Apart... More

While walking hungry in the hustle and bustle of the thoroughfare of Sparta, finding nothing but fastfood, kebap, pubs and the likes, we got the feeling that there was no hope that evening of getting a proper meal, But no...we came across Diethnes! A lovely lamb in the oven, briam, artichoke and peas were waiting for us...in the peaceful, relaxing... More

We stopped in Sparta on our way back from the seaside to Athens. We wanted to eat nice Greek food one last time before leaving this magical country. The waiter in this restaurant was kind and we decided to give a go as the garden is quite pretty. We asked for souvlaki but we have been told that it would... More

I come to Sparta often often and tried many restaurants and was very disappointed. They had a very traditional menu and prices reasonable but the quality of the food was very poor. They cut a lot of corners and used fillers instead of the more traditional expensive ingredients.

A lovely restaurant where you can either eat inside, out on the pavement in the street or in a secluded garden area at the back. We chose the back area since it was quieter and away from the traffic of the street. We ordered a variety of small dishes and were not disappointed with any of them. The Greek sallad... More

This place reminds me of my mother's home cooking. It is family owned and run, and they take pride in ensuring everyone not only enjoys their meal but enjoys their stay. The menu is what is made fresh that day, along with having fresh grilled options. It's not fancy but it is delicious and more than reasonably priced. Eating at... More

Easy to find, has welcoming, helpful staff (with some English), nice shady garden out back, good selection of food (they'll show you what's on offer each day), reasonable prices. Great place for a relaxed meal. (And watch out in case the restaurant tortoise ambles past your table!). Nothing pretensious, just really good authentic Greek food.
