In 2001 Romios Taverna started serving traditional and homemade Greek food. Since then we are known for our quality and our original Greek cuisine.
Romios Taverna is located at Ceintuurbaan, next to the Sarphatipark and near the Albert Cuypmarket in the heart of “De Pijp”. This neighbourhood is also known for its diversity of residents, shops and its pleasant nightlife.
The name Romios carries a long history. It was used in the Middle Ages, the Byzantine Times and during the period Greece was under the rule of the Ottoman Empire at Constantinople. Romios meant Greek in nationality. Much can be said about the origin of the name and its history through time. Nowadays, the name Romios has survived in the Greek culture through sayings such as “Romios has filotimo” and as a definition for the virtues of the Greeks.
We at Romios taverna are proud to bring to your plate a taste of Greece, food with history!
Our food is fresh, seasonal and prepared daily with love, care and respect to the needs of a healthy lifestyle.
