We ate here with a couple of friends - our first visit. The place is very large and inviting and on the evening when we ate there was a lovely open fire. Waiters are friendly and efficient. We ordered a Greek Salad to share (mediocre with iceberg lettuce, some fetta, very few tomatoes, some olives and with a watery dressing),... More

Make sure you booked yourself here as the place is getting full with local Greeks on weekends. We had a great dinner on a Monday night: dips were fresh and tasty, the charcoal grilled octopus are straight from heaven with a distinctive flamed flavour and the saganaki was made to perfection. And than were the meats: best giros in Melbourne... More

Went with a couple of Greek friends. This restaurant has struggled to maintain its popularity since the original owner sold out 25 yo? The new owners have renovated in the last year and the service and food is the best we have known in these 25 years. Our only complaint was that the waiter became too friendly and just about...

We've been to this restaurant about 8 times. We live in Sydney and every time we come to Melbourne we make a special visit to this restaurant. We always enjoy the food as it delicious and serves good authentic Greek dishes. The service is great and the owner remembers us and he always makes us feel very welcomed. Wish he... More

A nice welcome and a good feel restaurant with a warm and lively (a bit noisy at times) ambiance. Lemnos is both BYO wine and licensed. The waiters were attentive and a bit cheeky and fun. We have been to many Greek Restaurants around Melbourne and have enjoyed them very much, however, the food here was tired, tasteless, soggy and... More

Returning from our fantastic Greek holidays we wanted to taste delicious fresh Greek food again. We tried two other Greek restaurants within a few kilometres of our house and Lemnos is by far the best. Happy owners, great service, delicious authentic food and generous serves. Yes, it is noisy, but that is part of the atmosphere. We took the family... More

This restaurant is very close to our home and consistently serves great Greek food. Having recently returned from a holiday in Greece I cannot say that Lemnos food is as good as what we experienced in Greece but it is good Aussie style Greek food. I like that you can BYO wine and the service is very friendly. The fact... More

My friend and I were walking past this place as thought it might be a good place to stop as it looked very very popular. Neither of us had ever tried Greek food before so have nothing to compare it too but saying that it was very very delicious! We had a dip which came as a very generous serve... More

While there is no doubting Lemnos's popularity - it was a full house on the Saturday night we visited - it was a disappointing experience. Why? Well, the trendy concrete floor doesn't help soften the acoustics so conversation can be strained - and Friday and Saturday nights are interrupted by a visit from a blonde, belly dancer. Initially we thought... More
