Good value local Greek food

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... read more

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

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

Its a little away from the main hub of Prahran/Windsor but what a gem. It might have been helped by it being over Xmas hols as there not being many people in the restaurant but the service was extremely attentive without being intrusive. Large servings of food for each course that we simply couldn't finish plus we were given free... More

I have tried many Greek restaurants in the area and must say that this is by fr the best on this side of the city. I've been coming to this restaurant off and on for years and it never fails to deliver great food. Inside it's quite lovely and the staff are always polite, helpful and funny. Start with the...
