To be honest, food wasn't that bad... had the stewed beef with veges, very nice and very filling.. the waiter needs to be fired! horrible service from himself, unapproachable.. asked him if it was ok to mix ouzo with lemonade (never had it or heard of it prior) his response with an attitude was "if you want".. the prices were...

With only one other customer in the restaurant you would assume service to be on top form. However the waiter was severely uninterested in serving myself and my boyfriend and looked annoyed every time we asked him for something. Overall he made the whole experience uncomfortable and we couldn't wait to leave. Food was average - nothing special. The place... More

A "Good" rating would be helpful in between "Average" and "Very Good". That's what we'd give Zorba's inner city restaurant. We'd go back, given the opportunity, but would order differently. We had settled for the "menu", a combination of Gyros, Lamb and Chicken served with tzatziki, rice and potato chips (french fries), and a salad. Since I don't like chicken... More

The restaurant looks like your average touristy Greek place with blue decorations and antique figurines. The food was cafeteria decent but no more than that and the service was friendly but unprofessional, like the waiter was just soneones cusin fillling in for night.

This cafe has both indoor and outdoor tables. I had a fantastic souvlaki, and a great salad plate for lunch in the slanting sun. A wonderful lunch spot for me. I noted they also have a fixed-price menu for dinner with choices.

My family and I were walking around looking for a new place to try on our 2nd day in Amsterdam. Zorba's appeared to be a typical restaurant in a row of restaurants found in this part of Amsterdam. It was getting late so we decided to stop. The experience actually started off quite nice, with quick service and our drink... More

Having been positively abused and fearing harm for having refused the attentions of one restaurant touts and his neighbour- be warned. This is the tourist area. We returned to Zorba as the set menus looked good value. Happily, they were. I'd say good food and good value- and no touting. Why can't these places leave people to decide for themselves-... More
