The first thing about this restaurant is how knowledgable the waiters are about the dishes. Most of the wine is Greek, however, we were able to taste before we chose. The food was simply delicious. There were some really interesting twists on Greek cuisine. Definitely will return.

This place is super. The food and service us excellent. The cheese with fig is definitely a recommendation also the lamb shoulder! Very reasonable with the price also. Would return for sure.

Had lunch here today and I was pleasantly surprised. I thought all the hype about the owner may of been a cover for mediocre food, like many other celebrity chef's establishments, but this was not the case. The banquet was great and reasonably priced. Loved the Ouzo based spritzer and we had a Greek White wine which was great. The... More

Went for a family Father's Day early lunch. Didn't choose the banquet just off the normal menu. Took advice of the waiters regarding serving sizes.. Fantastic. The rice pudding was the best. Thanks

Went there with a few friends. Booked a couple of weeks in advance but only availability was 5:30 . Staff were nice and polite and attentive. Simple decoration. Good was just amazing. We asked our waiter to help choosing number of dishes based on number of people on the table, his suggestion left us with a lot of left over.... More

Really nice, tasty food. We ordered the $58 banquet which was great value for money. Plenty of food - the right amount and a good variety of dishes. The food was, for the most part, quite light but still very filling. Even the lamb shoulder- although it sounded heavy, was actually just right. The service was excellent and efficient-staff knew...

We surprised our daughter with a visit to this amazing restaurant for her birthday...she realized on the way in the taxi! From the minute we arrived there was a lovely bubbly vibe. The waitress helped with our choices, and was all over the gluten free food issues. I was thinking share food, and our coeliac ...a no no. But it... More

We met as a group. The service was great. Helpful without being intrusive. The food was really good. Simple home-style food, yet very tasty. The prices were reasonable as well. We all loved the donuts. Try these if you can still fit in dessert at the end of your meal.

Went with a group of 7 family members for a Saturday lunch and had the $58 banquet. The food was great- really fresh, tasty and good variety. However, the restaurant was incredibly noisy. You had to speak really loudly to hear each other due to conversations from tables nearby. I ended up with a headache. Would love to go back... More

We attended the Australian Open & combined some sightseeing with our stay. We only ate once, that was enough, not sure what the fuss was about this restaurant?? Hardly Greek food, more like Modern Australian cuisine, influenced by Greek-Australian cuisine, definitely not Greek! Price wise, quite expensive, portions are quite small, some plates were ok, but they do not 'blow... More
