none of the other restaurants we went to had this, so reason we picked it from the menu. Waitress was very accommodating. Food was lovely as was the wine. definitely worth a repeat visit. Seemed popular with locals!

After having lived in Greece many years ago I was keen to show my kids and hubby some Greek hospitality when we visited Melbourne - and we were not disappointed! This is definitely the restaurant where the Greeks go - warm, welcoming and very authentic. The food was excellent, the service friendly and prompt, and it was a joy to... More

Hard to imagine that we didn't get a great meal in Melbourne. Not sure how this restaurant gets good reviews. The owners ate Cypriot which might explain why some Greek dishes fail. Moussaka was ok, as was meatball soup but the lamb was almost cooked to leather and canned green beans were disgusting

I have been here twice in the last few years and both times loved it. Great atmosphere, excellent service and very tasty food. Both times I have been there (2 years apart) the service has been very quick and the food doesn't take long at all. Grilled Haloumi is a definite winner !

We were fortunate to get a table on a Saturday night. We shared a selection of dishes which were super tasty, and enjoyed by all. The atmosphere was relaxed and casual - great value for money. The service was great! I would absolutely eat here again!!

We got a friendly welcome from the owner as we walked in. The food is delicious and unpretentious. the fish cooked to perfection. Don't expect over boarding plates of food , portions are generous and sobering. Atmosphere is friendly.

Found by accident (It's nearby a Parking after coming back late from The Twelve Apostles). No regrets! We had lovely seats upstairs. Food was delicious, although we had to wait a long time before it arrived. Daganaki, Keftedes,and Chicken Souvlaki were excellent. And our waitress (from Paris) was very charming. Tsindos s' agapoo.

The atmosphere here is quite wonderful - we had a table upstairs and it could have been close to the Mediterranean (if you discount the views!) The assortment of old lace table toppers (every table different) was a nice touch. We arrived without a booking and we're offered a rather squeezy table and told we would only have an hour... More

This was our third visit to the restaurant and it is doubtful if we will return again. Very poor service when we arrived and for first half of meal, waiting staff attempted to make up for this later in the evening, but we were already disappointed by this point in time. Food was average, but again disappointing that the vegetarian... More
