Good quality traditional Greek food

We love this place, it is consistently good. Generous portions, well cooked, tasty food. Great fish, tender meat, lamb cutlets that melt in your mouth. It's always busy so be sure to book. Don't forget the side order of chips to be decadent, and just when you are about to explode from overeating... read more

Excellent food. Service fast and staff very attentive. Went with overseas guests and they were delighted with it all. Much preferred by them to a over the top type restaurant .

Great Greek food. Portions are very generous. We've been there so many times over the years and not once walked out hungry or dissapointed. The menu is not big but what they do they do really well. Very busy place especially on weekends, bookings are essential. It can get really noisy. If you are after a quiet place for dinner... More

The food was authentic and the service was efficient and friendly. It was like being back in Greece, eating with a local family who welcome you into their restaurant and whom have a strong sense of pride in the food they serve. The decor is dated, but shows its humble beginnings. Nothing pretentious or upmarket. The portions were very generous... More

Always busy so that has to tell you something about how good it is. Great food, cheap. Feels like being in Greece - kitsch decor and all.

Typically Greek food, good to share plates that are fresh and tasty. Prices are reasonable, service is ok, however the decor is a bit old and needs an update, please.....until next time.

What can you say? The decor is typically kitsch Mediterranean style, and very tired looking. The hosts could do with some spit and polish as well. If your going for food and not the atmosphere your in. The food is typically Greek, with good selection and plenty of it. Go with friends and have a great time. A small place... More

I have been a customer of this restaurant for several years and even comparing it to similar restaurants in Greece I have to say that it holds a very high standard, together with food freshness and good service. I have not found any other Greek restaurant in Melbourne that can even come near it.

If you after a consistently good, fresh and tasty meal, you must try it! Though a little hesitant to spread the word (empty tables are usually hard to find here), they deserve the praise. Not too fancy, but always good, and full of us regulars. Highly recommend.
