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!

My heritage is Greek so I am very particular about Greek food. I prefer authentic to modern, similar to what my grandma (γιαγιά) in Greece would serve. Meet the Greek in Brighton is just the place to experience authentic Greek food. The meze options are plentiful and really good. It's great to go with a group and order from the... More

The first time was good but we were another 3 times and was so and so. The saganaki was burnt and the lamb ribs was more than normal cooked. I am not satisfied with the kitchen but all the staff outside was very friendly.

Been a constant visitor to this place and go back for the food, service and atmosphere in that order I think. wine list while not extensive has a selection across most grape varieties. Food has consistently been great.

Visited here one week night with a large group for a business dinner. Service was excellent from start to finish. Food was delicious. The lamb was possibly the juiciest and most flavourful I've had and the chicken was also excellent. The Greek OPA beer in the blue bottle is also damn good!!!

What a great place to have a slow day lunch. My wife and I ordered the sharing platter of various meats. It was huge. The meat was well prepared, very tender and the sides were great. Very yummy chips and fresh salt air on the outdoor tables made for a memorable meal. It's noisy, even frenetic so not ideal if... More
