For a dining experience that captures the soul of Greek cuisine, look no further than KAIA in Amsterdam-Zuid! You will be directly transported to the sun-drenched shores of the Mediterranean at the first bite. 

 What sets KAIA apart is its commitment to preserving the essence of Greek cuisine while infusing it with a modern twist. Here, you won’t find your typical Greek fare; instead, you’ll discover dishes that pay homage to age-old recipes passed down through generations.
Start your culinary adventure with the Beetroot Salad, a vibrant and refreshing combination of marinated beetroot, sweet potato skordalia, and seasonal berries. 
For mains, you’re spoiled for choice with options like the Celeriac Root, slow-roasted to perfection and infused with the warm flavors of petimezi and spices from Chios Island. Or perhaps you’re tempted by the tender Red Gurnard “Lachano Yiachni,” served with tarama and samphire, transporting you to the shores of the Aegean with every bite. We savored the delectable flavors of the Lamb “Prasoselino,” reveling in its three textures of lamb, accompanied by a velvety leek-celery puree, a delicate avgo lemono sauce, and a rich lamb jus. Delicious. 

Don’t forget to kick off your culinary journey with a negroni infused with thyme, setting the perfect tone for the unforgettable flavors that await you.

And let’s not forget about dessert! We picked the baba au rum, a timeless classic with a Greek twist. It’s the perfect way to end your meal on a sweet note, with its delicate balance of flavors that won’t weigh you down.
But beyond the exceptional food, it’s the atmosphere at KAIA that truly immerses you in the Greek dining experience! The warm hues, rustic decor, and lively chatter evoke the spirit of a bustling taverna in Athens, inviting you to relax and savor each moment. And let’s not forget to mention the owner, whose warm hospitality adds an extra layer of charm to the entire experience! We will come back, for sure.
