If you are craving good, comfort Greek food in an atmosphere that feels like you are visiting a good friend’s home, you must check out this little secret place in Währing: Aphrodite on Gentzgasse close to the Volksoper/Währingerstrasse stop on the U6 line (no website).
This cozy little restaurant is run by a very nice Greek family – the owner will greet you as you walk in the door and often you will hear the son playing his violin for dinner guests. The decor has a very Mediterranean feel to it and the food is a little piece of Greek heaven! We usually opt for the Apollo plate for 2 people which feeds 2 adults and 2 kids without problem (and the kids usually talk themselves into a nice side of tsatsiki and bread or french fries)! They are very accommodating to little kids too and sneak our toddlers gummy bear treats at the end of our meal (and us some ouzo!) so it’s no surprise that we keep on going back. A definite must visit if you like Greek food and company!
