“Fantastice Service and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Long time patrons of this restaurant. First time since change of owners and what a difference.
Celebrated an 80th birthday last week with over 20 people and the service and food were second to none. Owner/waiters couldn't do enough for us. A memorable day

“Best Service Best Greek Greek food I have tasted in a long time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

I recently was referred to Kamari I was promised I would be blown away. I asked a few friends to join me we are not easy to please but my god this is what fine dinng is all about. The staff new exaclty how everything was cooked, everything on the menu was available and fresh, We had these Mezedes that tasted exactly like the dishes we had in Greece, you can't get more authentic than that. Then we had the sea food platter. The freshest seafood I have tasted. When I asked the waitress why it was so fresh she smiled and said you won't believe it but the owner cares about his customers experience that he hand picks it, when I asked if the owner is available she said the owner is always available for his customers. Listening to the way the owner talking about how he goes out at the break of dawn to hand pick the produce it start to make me understand why this restuarant is so successfull and always packed. It is the love and passion of the owner and his staff that makes the food tast so good. Thanks you Kamari Staff and thank you John

“BEWARE THE OWNER CHARGES YOU FOR MEALS YOU DON'T RECEIVE”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

A couple of weeks ago my husband, friend and I visited this restaurant on a Sunday evening while we were in Sydney. We placed our order with the waitress but when it arrived we were missing a meal. We mentioned this to the waitress and told her not to worry about it when it did not arrive with the other meals. When we came to paying the bill the waitress had gone and the owner then attended to our services. I signed the c/c without my glasses on, but When I arrived home (a 7 hour drive from Sydney, two days later) I checked my bill to find they had charged us for the meal. I immediately rang and spoke to the waitress who remembered me that had attended to us that evening and said she would get the owner to ring us back. Alas, I waited 4 days and NO RETURN PHONE CALL. I then telephoned and spoke to John, the owner who informed that he could not do a refund on a credit card and that the waitress could not remember us but when I spoke to her she did.. Unbeknown to him my husband and I are in business and know that a refund on a credit card is a simple procedure. To top it off he then said I could come in and have a dessert for free.. I don't think so, I live a 7 hour drive away from Sydney. I find this to be a very poor service and not good Public Relations when you are in business.

“BEST GREEK IN THE UNIVERSE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

As a non smoker I was denied access to this wonderful restaurant until they banned smoking in restaurants. Now, thankfully, I can eat there any time I want, and I always do. This is seriously the best Greek restaurant I have been to anywhere, even Greece. AMAZING food, Great service, great desert. I won't try to spell it but really you MUST try the warm vanilla custard desert whose name starts with "B".......Just don't walk past this place it's the best restaurant in Brighton-Le-Sands.

“A slice of Greece in Sydney”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Excellent little taverna, with excellent authentic Greek food and drinks.
Yanis, the owner, always makes sure you're missing anything and are having a good time.
Some Greek radio station is playing in the background and it makes you feel like you're in Greece. It's just a Greek place where everything's Greek.
I absolutely loved it.
