I will make this brief: Food is great, they are lining up out the door to get in! Food portions are very large so make sure you go starving cause we could not finish ours! They cater for dietary issues, we had a Coeliac with us and they were brilliant and knowledgeable! Service was a tad slow but it was... More

Located right at the corner of Lonsdale & Russell Street in Melbourne CBD, this place is open 24 Hours and is almost always packed and teeming with customers and busy waiters and waitresses going about keeping the endless stream of customers pleased. Whenever I visit Melbourne, Stalactites is always a must-stop dining place! I'd strongly recommend the Lamb Souvlaki for... More

Delicious Food at a very reasonable price! We have the lamb & chicken souva's & they were AMAZING! It's open 24 hrs, we only waited approx 15 mins to be seated & that was during peak time on a Saturday night 8pm.....meals were brought out quickly! Very happy, will go back again definitely! No booking required either!

The serves are massive so you could save a bit and just get entree size. Most tables had plates with unfinished meals- just because they couldn't eat anymore. Nothing spectacular but warm and cosy food and friendly atmosphere

A friend took us for dinner to this restaurant knowing our love for greek food and this was no disappointment. Their portions are great for sharing and have lots of options on dips. The bread is fresh out of the oven and they are open 24 hrs. The hostess was great to point out the best options for us that... More

Good location - get 'em in and out! Great spot to eat if you are in a hurry. The open kebab is yummy! Also the dips. There is usually a queue, but it moves fast. Great for families too.

This is my second visit though my first time reviewing it. The first time I went gave a lasting impression and thus, I went again. And the first time I went was for supper (as this place open till late) and my second time was also for supper. It was super. Me and my partner ordered the same as we... More

Popped in for a late lunch (2pmish) and the place was humming. Ordered a 'meat platter' and for $24 you couldn't beat it, the food was cooked beautifully and there was an array of seven different meats' in this dish; all consumed of course with a very nice bottle of New Zealand Cloudy Bay Sav/Blanc. The venue was comfortable (though... More

We ordered a lamb souvlaki takeaway and it took less than 10mins to prepare our order despite a busy Saturday night. The souvlaki is huge and while I love how the chargrilled lamb taste, hubby felt it was too dry.

The restaurant is in a good location, at proximity to the Marriott, QV and Swanston Street. Menu options are good and food quality was also good. Service was pretty average, perhaps this is because it was lunch and not dinner service but expected a bit more from this restaurant.
