We have made a list for you of some of the Greek restaurants in Barcelona
Dionisos is a small group of Greek restaurants in Barcelona. Greek Ioannis Golias opened the first Dionisos in 1993 at Carrer Comte d’Urgell in Barcelona. Much has happened since then but today, more than twenty years later, the restaurants run by Grupo Dionisos are still a piece of his homeland that make us travel to Hellenic lands through our palate. Nowadays they offer different restaurants around the city where you can enjoy top quality products imported directly from Greece.
Dionisos elaborates homemade traditional recipes with a modern touch.
Dishes: Moussaka (layers of eggplant, potato and ground beef baked with béchamel). Giouvetsi (Greek pasta with beef in tomato sauce baked with feta).
