One of the best dining experience. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the dishes, and the service was excellent. The foods were very good, and reasonable priced. I love the winter salad, one of the best salad I have ever had. Will definitely return.

If you enjoy flavoursome, hearty food this is the place. I've been here twice & had various meals, and both times the food was prepared with expertise. The waiting staff were polite, helpful & well informed on the menu. The venues appearance is contemporary & gives a feeling of Greece.

Fantastic service from our waiter Chris. While not Greek 😉, he knew everything we wanted and did not disappoint us with his fast humour and attention to detail. The food was great, the ambience and lovely but the staff here really made our night special 😊

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.

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...
