I've never been a fan of lamb because of its gamey flavour but Stalactites changed that. We ordered the meat platter, which was worth every penny as we got to taste their different meat offerings. If you're a carnivore, go for this. The lamb was cooked really well I enjoyed every bite! The pita bread was also wonderful -- very... More

Stalactites is everything one could want from a Greek restaurant. From pita bread to dips, to traditional Greek dishes like moussaka , to roast lamb, beef and chicken from the spit. The food is well seasoned and the best of all they are affordable. The meat platter is fantastic if you like to sample the different kinds of meat .... More

My sister, niece and I were on a tight time frame needing to eat quickly to get a particular train home. We told the waiter who recommended dishes that would be served quickest. We all selected souvlaki and a bowl of chips to share. By the time we had washed our hands the souvlaki and wines had arrived! The lamb... More

We visited late on a Saturday night and were surprised that this restaurant was open 24/7. They squeeze a lot of people in but we didn't feel over crowded. Although not the place for a romantic dinner as the tables are quite close. The waiters were attentive and polite and the meals were delivered quickly. We ordered stuffed cabbage leaves... More

Service was slow and they got it wrong- more than once. The food was average at best, some friends actually got sick ! I went there years ago and it was great but this experience was terrible and the last ! And what kind of Greek place doesn't offer Frappe on the menu ? !!!!

The meal was super large, tasted fantastic and was priced right. Service was spot on and the best thing is that this place is open 24... More

We were wanting a quick dinner. We had just finished shopping and had a quick turn over to eat and change before a show. We ordered Mixed Souvlaki and it was on our table within 5 mins. Very quick, great atmosphere. It would also be ok to stay as an evening with friends. There were group tables that looked like... More

Had lunch here last week and it was 12.30pm so the restaurant was very busy.But we did not have to wait long before we were seated with the menus and the specials explained to us and our drink order taken. It is a long time since we have been to Stalactites and they had done massive renovations everything looked amazing... More
