As we were a large group, we expected to wait quite awhile but amazingly, they managed to squeeze us all in at the same time albeit in different tables. Staff were busy but still polite and helpful. We had the mixed dips, pita and the mixed meat platter. The meats were tasty and succulent. The mixed dips were yummy although... More

Recently went for a family meal at Stalactites a place we had been to many years earlier. This time we were disappointing. They are tidying the place u and it has a fresh clean feel about it however we all found the food was not as tasty as we remembered. The price list has also taken a bit of a... More

If you're after a quick greek meal, then this is your place. The usual suspects are on the menu. Don't expect a romantic or quiet place, though. It is almost always noisy and bustling full of people. The quality is okay. It's not the best food I've ever eaten, but it's not the worst, either. They have a very extensive... More

Superb greek cuisine that doenst burn a hole in the pocket! Worth it, and worth the queue. If you would not want to wait so long, go late for supper, e.g. 10PM as the restaurant apparently opens 24/7! Order the souvlaki!

If you are foodie and like to explore food you must visit Stalactites on the Lonsdale Street. They have very good Greek food and the Suvlakis are worth a try.

This is our favourite restaurant in Melbourne. We have been here multiple times and every single time the food is amazing. Tip: try the souvlaki, the lamb and breakfast were both amazing, and the chicken was also good. Also, be sure to get a Greek salad.

We only had to wait a short time for a table as we hadn't booked but as soon as people left more were rapidly seated leading us to believe we had chosen a good place to eat. The waitress was friendly and efficient the food very yummy and the atmosphere warm.

Big menu with a lot of home style recipes with very friendly staff. But my meal came out cold, my sons meal never came and when we questioned it it, rather than cop to it and say that the order wasn't put in, we were made to wait for the meal without explanation and it was obviously rushed because the...
