“Great job Phil”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012 via mobile

We went to Spitiko with a group of ten friends after hearing that Phil Vakos from masterchef was now part owner. We were warmly greeted at the door by Phil and promptly seated at our table and within 2min were served our appetizers which were delicious selection of dips served with warm pita and bread. This was to be the beginning of an absolute banquet prepared by Phil for us the amount of food that came to our table was a gastronomic delight baked feta cheese, fried haloumi, pickled octopus,calamari,delicious pastitio, beetroot salad with roasted almonds, greek horta ,Greek salad,roasted potatoes with herbs,yiros, lamb and chicken souvlaki, continental sausage, and baked goat washed down with a lovely Greek sauvignon blanc it was amazing! It was also my friends birthday and Phil made the most delicious ganache tart filled with Turkish delight followed by Greek fried donuts (loukoumathes) which were filled with Turkish delight also all washed down with plenty of ouzo. The food was very reasonable in price and We all had a wonderful time left very contented and happy after having a truly wonderful night to remember. Well done Phil we'll be back soon!

“Delicious Greek Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

I've been to Spitiko twice now, once with a work Christmas party and once with my partner. Both times the food has been yummy and the atmosphere has been lovely and "comfortable". The prices aren't 'cheap' but the food is good quality and very tasty. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

“Delicious food and the best greek restaurant in Melbourne.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2010

It is really hard to find a restaurant that provides Fabulous service, delicious, full of flavour food and value for money.

We flew in from Brisbane and held my sons baptism luncheon at Spitiko. John, the owner/manager, stuck to his word and provided us with a wonderful venue where we now have fond memories.

The food continued to filter throughout the afternoon and all of our guests were more than impressed. We started with Mezzes, which moved to heavier food and drinks. Three hours later, we were still there and the food was still coming.
We organised a child entrainer, once again, John, amazingly secured an area away from the eyes of all and the children had a wonderful hip hop of a time.
We finished the evening off with cake which was served and cut by spitiko at NO COST! Most places charge a minimum of $4.00 per head for cake. We also had greek sweets distributed as part of our package along with the cake. John even put the left over cake in storage containers for our guests, which was very thoughtful.

Thankyou spitiko, John and staff for making our afternoon and evening such a beautiful and memorable event.
