Had lunch here with a group of 8 and food is tasty and authentic. The gyros is a signature (make sure you order the fries inside). Will be back when next in Melbourne.

This very busy Greek restaurant did not disappoint. The service was impeccable. The food was tasty - open souvlaki excellent!!. Very affordable too. Shame Stalactites is not in Brisbane. Can't wait to return on my next visit to Melbourne.

A regular haunt when over in melbourne on business, love the chicken and lamb gyros from the spit. Combine that with some dips and pita bread, and you will be in greek food heaven!
