We chose this restaurant after strolling the streets of Amsterdam trying to find a decent main meal for under €18. The menu looked good and prices reasonable.

The only ones in the restaurant, we were seated in the window, on a table for 4 people. I asked for a Diet Coke which was poured in a glass - no bottle, can or ice. When I asked for a second drink, the waitress asked if she could re-use my glass. We ordered our food and enjoyed what we ate. The moussaka was quite firm, but it's possibly supposed to be like that. I'm not a connoisseur of Greek food.

As the evening went on, the restaurant gradually became busier. A man came in asking for a table for 4. The waitress didn't have any tables for 4, but keen not to turn business away, she interrupted a couple in the middle of their meal (!) and asked them if they would move tables so she could seat the other people.

Thinking this extremely rude, we took our cue to ask for the bill and leave, so as to save the other couple from the embarrassment of being re-seated mid-way through their meal. If this had been us, I would have been mortified.

We popped in here based on a recommendation from a couple eating in the side walk. They must of gotten a commission because it was basic and not very extraordinary. Was edible but Far from what I know to be authentic Greek food.

We spent a weekend in Amsterdam inApril. Everywhere was busy, and many of the restaurants recommended by guidebooks in this area (Prinsenstraat, close to the Tulip and Cheese museums) were booked out. We came across 'De Twee Grieken' by chance - and what a lucky find.
It is very welcoming, and has great character. The 'maitre' runs a great show front of house, while his sister (and nephew to add a helping hand) are excellent in the kitchen.
It is lively and sociable, the food is good, and the whole atmosphere - efficient, and yet time to talk to others and the maitre - is enjoyable and relaxing.
Top marks.

Not going on holiday to Greece this year so we made reservations at De 2 Grieken. The sister in the kitchen and the brother in the restaurant. Excellent combination. We eat there at least once a year for it feels like a vacation. A warm welcome and good cooking. If the weather allows it, the eating outdoors is a bonus. Plus a lovely green view.
The starters are all very tasty and we make the same mistake over & over again: the servings are so ample that a starter and maincourse is too much. But ... it is so tasty you want to try everything. Last night we ordered the kalamari, keftades (meatballs) and spinach/feta bites followed by moussaka and filet mignon from the grill. Esp. the Moussaka tasts like they serve it in Greece. I really love the two Greek!!
