Good Greek!

Visited here on a Friday night. Late notice but they still got us a table for six. Excellent atmosphere where you're well looked after. The slow cooked lamb and the lamb cutlets are excellent choices and the potaties are just like made at home. Octopus was also as tender as! Great to listen to the... read more

I have no complaints or criticisms of Medusa. I think this might be my fourth review..not sure. The mezes was sublime and the pork shoulder to die for. Big, noisy (excellent and attentive service) and all good (wish I had room for pudding though!)...love it hear and happy to keep supporting.

I must say I was a little cynical about going to TA number 5 restaurant in Sydney as I normally use the Good eating guide. However this time I put myself in the hands of TA. This is run by a Greek family and is not large. The food is excellent as is the service. It is not expensive. Wine... More

We dined in October 2014 and again at the beginning of the year, visiting from London. How wonderful to find a family owned restaurant unique to Sydney, where the owner will personally check that you are happy. The food is spectacular, locally sourced and generous. All the staff are great, really friendly and both occasions we dined for someone's birthday.... More

As there are no (decent) Greek restaurants in Auckland, we decided to try our luck in Sydney. Medusa Greek Taverna was our first choice after looking at the menu and waking past it on Market Street on our way back to the hotel from Darling Harbour. We were warmly greeted and asked politely if we could vacate the table in... More

Having visited Medusa a number of times you can never pick out something that they could do better. The staff are all older and give off the vibe that you and all of their own are family. The venue is so welcoming and homely. The quality of the food and beverages are exceptional. Definitely give it a try they won't... More

Having come all the way from England and having Greek routes this was a delight. The food was excellent and the owner made us laugh and looked after us making sure we had a great night. Fantastic restaurant in the centre of Sydney.

Dined here for lunch on a weekday after seeing this restaurant reviewed on Trip Advisor. It was busy but not crowded and we had immediate attention from staff. Couldn't go past the slow cooked lamb as it sounded delicious and the scent wafting from the kitchen was so enticing. Started with a dip - the Taramasalata with warm pita bread... More
