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... More

My family and I have been dining at Lemnos Tavern for a couple of years now on a very regular basis and we still love it. I ditto all my previous compliments to Theo, his food and the warm, inviting ambience of this restaurant. We have also held staff nights out here for large bookings and our staff loved it.... More

The food is always fresh and served with a smile. Fish is particularly well cooked and the meats and chicken are also good. Their dips are authentic and delicious and it has a fairly extensive menu. It is a neighbourhood restaurant not too fancy, concrete floors, sometimes a little noisey but good food and very nice staff. Nothing is too... More

Having eaten at a few below average greek restaurants in recent years, I did not have high expectations when a friend chose this as our venue for a group dinner. We had a set menu and every course was delicious. The service was attentive and friendly and I will definitely be back. Thank goodness!

I have been here with my family several times and they are also now regular diners. Theo the owner is a perfectionist who personally manages every table and watches every plate that comes out. This results in a well run restaurant with brilliant Greek food. Unlike many Greek restaurants that have tiled floors and sterile surrounds, Lemons Tavern has wooden... More

Usually excellent fish and side dishes. Not so tonight. Fish was burned , Chops not crisp and meat dry and tasteless. Service good as always but meal not up to standard.
