After 4 fairly uninspiring days of food in Sydney, we tried our luck as walk-ins at Medusa at 8pm tonight after seeing TA reviews. The restaurant was very busy but a table was found for us within 5 minutes. Service was quick, efficient and specials explained clearly. Shared starter of zucchini flowers was delicious. Main of stifadho was simply the... More

Very poor. Booked a table for 8pm. Arrived at 7:55pm. There were a couple of walk-ins who were shown to a table before us (at just after 8pm) leaving us waiting. Luckily we had a table not long after, but only because a couple happened to leave. Why book if they're going to give priority to people who haven't? We... More

If you are looking for a restaurant with good atmosphere and great food, make a booking. The menu, including the wonderful share desert will definitely have you going back another time.

My wife and I had dinner at Medusa Greek Taverna and enjoyed the food as well the whole experience. While the decor of the restaurant is modern, the food is classical. We both had the Greek Salad to start. As a main course I had the roast lamb rump while my wife had roast lamb in wrapped in phylo dough.... More

We ordered several of the entrees and we couldn't fault them. The tarama and halloumi were great, the dolmades and spanakopita tasty, and the zucchini flowers outstanding. The problem came with the mains. Two out of the six (lamb and pork) were so salty they were barely edible. One was my main and I didn't complain because it was a... More

We booked a table at Medusa recently for a celebration after reading Trip Advisor reviews. The food was amazing and very generous including mezze platter, spanakopita, suckling pig, lamb, chicken Santorini and swordfish. The service was excellent, friendly and attentive but not intrusive. Will definitely recommend and hopefully go there next time we visit Sydney.

Went here with a group and we had a standard Greek feed. The dips and bread were good (green, white & pink, saves letters). Followed by the triangle & halumi. Calamari & Greek salad were good. Enjoyed the lamb & Moussaka which really should be a given. Didn't have desert. The Greek beer a nd ouso was good, as was... More

When we arrived for dinner the restaurant was about half full. We were seated at a table in the middle of the room when there were multiple tables next to windows with views and some outside tables also. I brought that to the attention of the hostess and was told All those tables were reserved. Oh Well. Anyway, we had... More

When 4 of us were looking for somewhere nice to eat near our Meriton apartment in Kent St, the Medusa Greek Taverna came up on both TripAdvisor and Urban Spoon with high recommendations - so we booked. We were not disappointed! The food and the service were what we had expected - very good! We recommend you try Medusa Greek... More

Went there on Saturday the 15th for a friends 60th birthday, had a great time the service was consistent and polite with out being annoying. The food flowed all night and was quite good. I would go back again without any hesitation
