Totally worth the visit.... The food was very tasty and we loved it!! I have eaten Turkish, Lebanese, Iranian etc but it was Greek for the first time and was not let down. The service was quick and the portions big enough for us to have enough leftovers.

Our family was recently staying for four nights in Melbourne on our way back from Tasmania. On our first night, we visited Stalactites and the food was just exceptional. We turned up and there was a bit of a queue however, we were greeted warmly and taken to a table reasonably quickly. There are no bookings but the restaurant is... More

Stalactites has changed since it opened, and since our last visit 6 years ago, but the food is still excellent, still good value and the service is great! As a half Aussie-Greek person I love that you can come here and enjoy Greek food done close to but not the same as Yiayia's(Grandma) food. Proud to bring friends here, and... More

The menu is large and should satisfy nearly everyone including vegetarians. Food is delicious and good value and the ceiling is tacky stalactites but fun. An appetiser platter for 1 is a great selection

This restaurant was recommended by the tour guide from the Lanes & Arcades Walking Tour and was spot on! We were in three different cities in 15 days and this was the best meal we had. We ordered a small combo platter of lamb and chicken that was out of this world great. The portion was gigantic! Only after I... More

I can honestly say that I wish I lived in Melbourne just for this place. Their souvlaki is succulent and juicy and tender. The decor is original and the location is reasonable. I believe I had the mixed souvlaki, with some greek dips as an entree and some chips as a side. The waiter warned us when we were ordering... More

While I did not require them on my visit this week, Souvas at 24 hours 7 days a week need to be appreciated and encouraged
