We were greater by a waiter and shown to a table upstairs!! It's pretty standard Greek food with massive portions and super tasty food!! Though my wife's 13$ open plate kebab was the same size plate and amount as my 27$ meal.. I would definitely and will return

Everything you'd expect from a typical Greek establishment, situated in Melbourne's Greek Precinct. Perfectly cooked grilled meat, variety of delicious dips and warm pita bread.

We arrived a little bit later than we hoped and the place was packed. There was a short queue outside and we only had a 10 minute wait to be seated. Both starters and mains were great, many dishes do come with chips / fries and if it was me, I would not include these. There is plenty of food... More

Simple yet the best souvlaki I have ever had. Open24 hours and we went after seeing a musical at 11 pm . Fast friendly service and affordable prices, I will definitely go again and recommend this place

Must try their pita bread. Because it open 24 hours a day so can walk in any time. The staff are friendly and polite.

STAFF very friendly, honest and polite. Just I didn't really enjoy my food there, meat so dry specifically. But that's maybe because I didn't know much about Greek food..

Not much to say, walked in after 10pm on a Tuesday, no fuss, had an absolute great Lamb Kebab, couple of wines and that was it. Go for it, GREAT Kebabs.

Each and every time I travel to Melbourne I try and have dinner here at least once, which I was pleased to do last week. I missed out on the last occasion I was in Melbourne as Stalactites was under renovation. The new look is great and it has still maintained the busy, hustling, always-something-going-on style atmosphere. For a change,... More

Second visit to this restaurant and was not disappointed. Very friendly staff. So popular you need to wait in line to get a table .. Our 20min wait was well worth it. We were kept informed regularly of timing and must admit he was spot on. We ordered saganaki to start with and the cheese was cooked to perfection, with... More
