Normally head into Jimmy's Greek Tavern in Richmond, but thought we would try our local Greek joint. This place was more than satisfactory. The service was very attentive and even gave us the option to takeaway the food we couldn't finish. The food was fantastic and I'd recommend the banquet for $45.

This place is far from the authentic greek dining experience one expects from a greek tavern. The food is average and the service (while semi friendly) is sloppy. If you want real Greek food go to Oakleigh, there are 30 odd Greek restaurants that blow this joint away. It wouldn't hurt the staff/owners to dine there to see how it... More

Twice in 5 years I have been to Pelagos and twice I have been served delicious looking dessert treats before I have had any souvlaki meat in my main meal. I thought in a banquet the dessert would come last? We also waited an hour before we got anything but our bread and dips on the first occasion. They are... More

Took the family to Pelagos Hampton for Mothers Day lunch yesterday - 7 adults + baby in pram. Crowded and noisy, but all part of the atmosphere. Excellent service from our two young waitresses and the food was very good. Good size portions, cooked to perfection and the kitchen was able to produce the courses in a timely manner. Our... More

This is a semi regular catch up for a few guys. We bring the red wine, the tavern supplies the food. It is not fine dining, but as the Greek in our group tells us, it is fine food. Don't go for the decor, sparking service or that hipster north of the river experience. Go for the seriously great food,... More

My family (from 4 yo to 90yo) wanted a night out to share a great meal with minimum fuss. Pelagos was Perfect ! The waitress/owner made suggestions and we left what and how much to her. As the tapas started to flow, mopped up with the fragrant pita breads, we got more and more excited.. Best Taramasalata ever- the Whitebait... More

My first visit here, quite simply because our dining options in Hampton St are so varied. Jenny looked after my group of six exceptionally well. A Greek beer, Greek red wine, superb dips for entree and a huge shared meat platter for a sub-group of we three. Flavoursome sausages, rissoles, kebabs, and shaved lamb absolutely filled us with Greek food.... More
