Taxi Recommendation

The steak was so good I almost went back for a second one! Service was excellent, the atmosphere was great and more importantly the price was right!

This restaurant can teach a thing or two to Paris Left Bank or Torontos’s Danforth strip greek establishments: fantastic food, gigantic portions, friendly efficient service, and the taste.simply heaven - or should I say Olympus?? Because of the efficient service its also great for tourists who are often in a hurry. Not to be missed!

great food, good location, a really nice way to end your day... Do try the bean soup... not to mention the chicken skewers... Careful when ordering - portions are big.

Service was efficient and menu explained well. Chicken and lamb "combo" was very tasty. Would return again next time in Melbourne

We have eaten here many times over the years but haven't visited for about 12 mths. I really think the meals we had here this week were better than we have had in the past. We had an open lamb souvlaki and chicken fillet souvlaki. Both excellent.

I had the gyros and Horiatiki salad, both of which were good. The challenge was to get service. Many times servers passed but did not take my order. Also, getting the bill was a chore. Might be good for late night as they are open 24 hours.

There was a queue when we arrived- always a testament to good food. Fortunately, we'd booked (there were sixteen of us after all). The atmosphere was convivial, the service was friendly and efficient, and the food was fantastic. We ordered the banquet which began with discs of fried cheese (I'm told it wasn't haloumi, but it was something equally delicious).... More
