Enjoyed a late dinner at this place. Ambiance quite simple but the food was good honest Greek food. The service was well pace but I was the last guest being served. Price is OK and again good average Greek food when you crave something of that type in Zaventem.

Visited the restaurant with some colleagues for a pre-Christmas relaxing dinner and were surprised to see that the restaurant is being offer for Rent, perhaps a change of owner is imminent. Its a Greek restaurant however neither the decor nor the menu don't really represent that origin however the establishment is pleasant and comfortable. Service is painfully slow, we had... More

I had dinner with my nephew on October 16, 2014 at De Griekse Pirateke in Zaventem. There is convenient public parking in front of the church nearby. The house has an interesting antique facade with a colonnade but the interior is modern and elegantly minimalist. We were welcomed by the smiling lady of the house and nice greek music. We... More

We followed tripadvisor's comments and discovered this place. One of the best meal we ever had! The "filet d'adgneau" is just delicious.

We landed at Brussels Airport following holiday in Greece, and because the traffic around Brussels was completely stuck, we decided to get something to eat first. By chance we found this restaurant, and we were pleasantly surprised by the very good food, friendly service and affordable prices. Whenever we are in the area and need a restaurant, this one will...

Very nice place, been here several times in the last 2 years, always on business travel, mostly with groups of up to 13 people. Food is delicious, pricing is on the Brussels level, we always had a nice welcome, any extra wishes were no problem. Will return any time!

We have been a number of times to this nice little restaurant. The menu is a bit limiting, but the food is great and the service is wonderful. We always feel special when we dine at De Griekse Pireke. If you like Greek, you best pay them a visit.

We had a wonderful time and we strongly recommend this restaurant to all those who can appreciate the combination of real descent food and creativity. The chef Manos Makrygiannakis amazed us at the end of our dinner with his mousse of halva. The service is very friendly and the prices are absolutely fair compairing to the quality of the menu....

The menu featured a nice variety of lamb dishes. However, this is not your typical greek restaurant. The food was tasty but taking about 2.5 hours for dinner with only 4 and no desert is a tedious and painful experience. The food also came to the table only warm; surprising as we were the only patrons in the restaurant. Take... More
