We had a birthday dinner for my husband and I expected so much more from the menu and the servings - considering the restaurant charge $11 approx for a small serving of Tzatziki dip which hardly covered the bottom of the side plate - there are only 3 ingredients in to do this dip - yoghurt, cucumber and garlic all...

I think I've found my new favourite restaurant! Deliciously different and unpretentious. Food was excellent and fresh. Staff were friendly and attentive without being irritating. The food is designed for sharing and the first course comes out really quickly. The wine is a bit pricey but overall an exceptional meal.

You feel like a sardine in this place. It is so popular cos the food is great but so uncomfortable due to the limited space. The salads are so fresh as you would want from a greek place.

Enjoyable Greek style food. Fried cheese was mouth watering good. Similar to other reviewers we also felt that the wines are overpriced as we paid $60 for average run of the mill booze. Would give it another try with friends as sharing would mean we try more food

We received a warm welcome, despite being foolish enough to arrive without reservations. Kindly, they found us a place at a share table and obligingly moved us when another table became available. The atmosphere was great and the place was jumping, with lots of happy chat and laughter. The menu was extensive, not haute cuisine, but accessable, family, peasant/fisherman type... More

This is a favorite of ours which we visit whenever we are in Melbourne and it did not disappoint. The food and service as always was superb, it's like returning to your family and well worth a visit.

We ordered the $70 menu and enjoyed every tasty mouthful of our banquet. The staff are knowledgeable and helpful- assisting me to select a greek wine to my liking and helping my husband to select a greek beer to try that was to his liking. Although there is a two hour time limit on the tables we were at no... More
