We visited Aphrodite with Dutch friends on the basis of a Dutch website recommendation. We were not disappointed. The service was so friendly and the staff could not have done more for us. The waitress moved seamlessly between Dutch and English for our mixed group. The food was delicious and home-style. I would certainly go there again.

We have been going to the Greek Restaurant since 2011....it's probably our favorite local place in Amsterdam....although it's located in the touristy area of Leidseplein; it is just far enough away from the many restaurants that it is set apart. The interior is charming, charming, charming. Small, intimate, lovely. The owner, Loes greets everyone with a big smile and usually 3 kisses...is it because most of her customer are repeat and local? Could be. She seems to know everyone and you are welcomed back like she is welcoming you into her home. We have been there when it is packed, and we have been there when there are just one or two tables. She has had to change cooks a couple of times (one sadly died) so the food is not always consistent, but it is always good and hearty. Worth the try and I suspect you will be back.

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.
