“A taste of Greece”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Good prompt service and the food was very good. Very much a family run business but not too busy to give a lot of charm. Food came out nice and hot. a good place for greek food.

“Absolutely horrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

Dion by far has been the worse restaurant in terms of service and rudeness. We had made am 8.30 reservation, we arrived to be looked at with a blank face because our table was given away we then had to wait for people to leave,sat on a dirty table,given menus 10min later and I had to ask the waitress to clean our table from previous diners. I am unable to comment on the food because we sat for 40 min with a glass of tap water. When I told the waitress we were ready to order she kept walking and screamed you need to wait. She was dismissive and rude if you can't handle the job don't do it. The last straw was then telling the owner we were ready to order where he responded "yeh yeh" and we proceeded to wait another 15 min. It took us to get off our chairs to leave for the owner to come over to us, absolutely disgusting. We then went to a Greek restaurant further up called Tsindos which was a homely restaurant with great authentic Greek food and great service.

“A very pleasant visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Yes really enjoyed the meal, food was beautiful and the staff were very friendly. Great value also and the ambience was great. Felt like a local restaurant in Greece in the centre of Melbourne. Recommend it for lunch or dinner.

“Great fun night with the kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

We visited with our teenage kids and ordered from one of the set menus so we could introduce the kids to Greek cuisine. Every one of the dishes was delicious and we really enjoyed them. My husband and I shared a couple of bottles of Retsina wine which accompanied the food perfectly. The kids loved their experience and we had a fun family meal. The coffee and sweets were delivered from a neighbouring shop but were a tasty end to the night. We would definitely return here again. The Managers were very friendly!
