So instead of a restaurant review twice a month, I’m only on my second restaurant review this year. Was a bit to enthusiastic in promising this last March, but here’s a review of Restaurant Aphrodite in Utrecht Lunetten. It’s located in the small shopping center in the area. About 10 minutes walking distance from our home.
You can sit down at this place or order take out. Due to restrictions in place this year and last year we’ve only gotten take out or delivery from them.
The owner of the restaurant, Shammie, is friendly and makes the most delicious Greek food.
What to order
Aphrodite is a Greek restaurant, so all sorts of delicious Greek dishes can be ordered here. For lunch they have several different Greek style grilled cheese sandwiches on the Aphrodite restaurant menu. For instance combinations of feta and/or olives with Beemster cheese. Beemster is a Dutch cheese brand. Pita’s are also available for lunch, such as a Pita gyros or a Pita grilled vegetables.
For dinner they offer several menu’s such as the gyros menu and sousouki menu. Salads are also available, such as a Haloumi salad or a Souvlaki salad. We love to order the Gyros kapsalon or on Monday the Moussaka. Of course you can also order a simple portion of fries or cole slaw. The turbo sauce, they’re own homemade sauce, is delicious. As is their Tzaziki.
In the dessert department I simply love the Oreo cheesecake and Paul loves the Baklava. They also sell Montgomery’s ice cream and Greek yogurt. They have several bottles of wine on the menu.
Restaurant Aphrodite is worth a stop
When you’re in the area. An earlier restaurant review was on Het Oude Tolhuys. I’ve also reviewed Bond en Smolders. When you want to prepare your own fries, check out these Crinkle Cut Fries. If you want to have a burger next to your fries, prepare this Veggie Burger Omelet.
Wow! The food looks absolutely amazing!
Greek food is so tasty, yet simple – I would try all of that!
This restaurant sounds like it has delicious food. I love gyros although the moussaka is very tempting.
The food looks delicious! Gyros and the cake look great.
