Excellent Greek food - delicious moussaka and great dips! Quiet atmosphere and non-intrusive but very helpful service.

I had attended this restaurant for years and loved the Greek cuisine, however, they suddenly upped the prices and reduced the amount of food your received. One night we received a salad for four that I thought was for one person it was that small. Not sure why they did what they did but as a result we were most... More

Briliant Greek Cypriot on Whitehorse Road Surrey Hills close to the 109 tram line and with plenty of parking nearby. The complete Greek eating experience - a family operation with friendly and attentive staff. For entree fetta and cheese was great - the BBQ Octopus was also superb. Main courses were dominated by seafood (prawns were great), top greek salad... More

We go here regularly and the food is consistently good, but the service by the waiting staff can vary widely. We have experienced excellent service at times, but next time we have gone, the great wait staff have gone and there are new people. Tonight, there were three serving staff - one very good, who was pleasantly working very hard... More

Many of the evening staff are students who are doing their best at friendly service but are not trained in hospitality, but are certainly trained in house with explaining the menu and helping...

An eastern suburbs institution providing simple but lovely Greek food. Take-away is the name of the game here, and the front of house with its heated food cabinet gets very busy. The rear restaurant seating area is a bit austere and the waiter/waitress service can be variable, but the food is just great. The front cooking and takeaway area can... More

A local institution in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, the Flame Greek Tavern offers no frills authentic Greek cuisine in a simple setting. The food has the look and feel of home-style cooking and the décor is also homely and welcoming. My favourites from the extensive menu are the exceptionally good spanakopita (spinach pie), the nourishing and tasty grilled white bait, grilled... More
