Good food and friendly staff

We recently visited this restaurant with some friends from Melbourne. We liked it from the start as it took bookings and we weren't made to line up outside to get a table. The food was nice and the staff were very friendly. Alex and Georgina looked after our needs all night. We liked the fact that... read more

The food was good, nothing amazing, nothing bad. The slow cooked lamb was huge, could easily be a shared meal. It was dinner. It felt like we were being hurried rather than dining and yet the restaurant wasn't full.

Honestly I can't say that the food was not good, but they serve small portions and service is slow. We needed a stop at Macca after dinner... still hungry after paid $240.00 in three without wine. I don't think we'll repeat this experience.

after a really friendly welcome and a large meal of greek comfort food we settled in for the trio playing authentic greek folk music all for a very reasonable price we will be back.

Just had the best night with best food and great staff. The eggplant dip with pita bread superb. Waiter attentive. Service quick. Perhaps a bit to quick if you are not in a hurry. Certainly can recommend this lovely Greek icon.

Delicious dinner at this local Melbourne spot in the Greek area of town. Ordered the lamb cutlets, a house specialty, which were perfectly prepared. This place has a family and home type of atmosphere. Very warm and welcoming. Service was excellent. I'll eat here again when I return to Melbourne.

Went for a birthday and sat upstairs. All 14 of us had a fantastic time - service was attentive and they're more than accommodating (e.g. dietary requirements, serving order, cake - they even sang happy birthday with us!). Food was good, esp the dips and mixed meat plates. Overall great atmosphere and with BYO and their central location it's the... More
