“.........hmmmmmm”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Dinner for two.
Staff were lovely, and very attentive, always filling our water glass, and liked that they were authentic Greek servers. The place lacked warmth and atmosphere, was a little bland - not implying that it should go the whole hog and and do the Greek themey thing, that is so tacky.
The food was OK,but was expecting some wow tastes, but didnt hit the spot, and the portions were quite small for the prices. I really wanted to like it :(

“Breakfast with a difference, lovely service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Having stayed in Melbourne for a few days and had numerous dining experiences, this was a menu with a difference, a Cretan difference. Lovely Greek touches. We sat around chatting for a while after breakfast, so I can also recommend the orange cake - incredible!

“very good and innovative greek food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

had a great meal here the other night... the restaurant has a minimalist theme, wooden tables, polished concrete floors, large windows etc.... service was prompt, and informative... the food is truly good... however due to the restaurant not having any sound deadening in regards soft furnishings it was a little noisy... this would have been fine except for the introduction of a live singer/guitarist doing greek songs with a small amplifier... totally unnecessary to the point it became intolerable and we left sooner than we really wanted to... just a suggestion to the owner...perhaps some subdued piped bacground music on a greek theme would be enough :-)
will be back when the loose the excess noise as the food was really good...
