Sydney’s Original Greek
Sydney's Original Greek Restaurant - Diethnes - Celebrates 70 Years of Traditional Greek Cuisine
For 70 years, Sydney's restaurant Diethnes has been the go-to spot for authentic Greek dining. Since 1952, our family-owned and operated restaurant has been serving up traditional recipes passed down through generations. At Diethnes, we pride ourselves on not just the food but the entire experience. Step into our warm and welcoming atmosphere for a true taste of Greek culture.
Diethnes Greek Restaurant has a rich history, with roots dating back to 1967 when our previous owner, Phillip, migrated to Australia from the Cyclades. He worked his way up from kitchen hand to owner, and in 1977, the restaurant moved to its current location at 336 Pitt Street.
Today, John, Phillip's son continues the legacy of Diethnes. With an understanding of the importance of Greek hospitality, John's goal is to maintain the traditional lifestyle through the use of nostalgic Athenian décor and traditional home-style Greek cuisine.
At Diethnes, we believe in "filotimo" and "filo xenia" - the Greek values of pride and hospitality. It is our honor and privilege to share the delicacies of Greek cuisine with our guests. We invite you to join us for a meal, and let us transport you to the traditional lifestyle and cuisine of Greece - Kali Orexi!
