While on holidays and visiting friends during our last night. We wandered over to Brighton Le Sands. We decided out of many eateries along the esplanade to try Meet the Greek. Well we weren't disappointed. The food was awesome. The atmosphere quite lively, nice music and the staff very friendly. Definitely looking forward to coming again next time we are... More

We were seated without a greeting, the waiter seemed really cold and bitter. He handed us a menu and didn't say anything. Browsing through the menu everything seemed really expensive. $6 for dip? Nothing really took our fancy. We ordered the $80 'Meat the Greek' a salad and a beer. The beer was warm, $8 and very disappointing. Salad came... More

Would recommend the rotisserie meat skewer, feta and green pepper pita dip, honey and feta filo parcels (OMG!) and haloumi plates! One of the tastiest meals I've had in a while. Paris was lovely, and the other staff seemed friendly enough. Would recommended upgrading their beer list. It's rare to see VB on a fine dining menu these days.

We were staying overnight in a hotel just down the street, using Sydney as an overnight stopover and flying home the next day. We are not familiar with Sydney at all so when we realised we were staying in a Greek/Lebanese community in Sydney we jumped at the chance to eat some authentic Greek food. Meet the Greek was just...

Had dips. Ordered 2 glasses of wine only one arrived. Manager comes and tells me we need to order more. I mean who the hell is he to determine what we want? Wine came late after reminding the waiter. Finally when we went to pay I was showed gratuities and asked to give tips. Absolutely worse ever place I have... More

My partner and I enjoyed lunch at Meet the Greek on Australia Day. While the weather was a little chilly and overcast, it was still a nice spot across from the Bay to enjoy lunch. The atmosphere inside the rest was cool with fun facts around the wall about Greeks in countries around the world. I had the lamb cutlets,... More

We are Greek-Australians from Melbourne and spent 4 days in Sydney for a family holiday. Having operated a Greek Reception/Restaurant for over 20 years in Melbourne, we believe that we have the experience to provide an accurate review for the readers. We say that this is one of the best Greek restaurants in Sydney. The atmosphere was ‘alive’ with a... More

Food was terrible. Got the banquet and after 2.5 hours we were still waiting for the meat which is served at the end. The lamb was black, not even edible!!! How they even thought it was ok the serve it is beyond me. Very overpriced also. Kamari and parea both 1000000 times better! Do not recommend!
