This restaurant is around 1km from where we live and have been meaning to give it a try. Our chance came in the from of a Groupon Voucher we purchased for $49 for 2. Great Value. Excellent dips, with a local flavour, 4 dips with bread. This was followed by a seafood platter of delicious fish fillets, king prawns and... More

Eight of us dined here for our six-monthly gas-bag, and had an excellent time. Their set menu provided lots of genuine Greek food, served by waiters with a suitable level of attitude, and always ready to join in the conversation when appropriate. Not as good as Laikon in the 70's, but nothing is.

Searched the internet for a greek restaurant near our location and this came up. Pictures tell a story right? Very comfortable furniture and friendly staff. Should have left then. When in Rome you get roman. Melbourne may have the largest Greek population but this restaurant FAILS in flavor and EXCELS in bland. Lamb should reek of Greek but it was... More

We have been to this restaurant many times. Usually as a family group and therefore have the banquet. The owners and staff are so very professional and accomodating. The place is fully licensed and prices are fair. There are always specials up and general different seafood specials are part of them. They also have a big menu but do two... More

We went to this restaurant with a Groupon that advertised "$104" value. Alarm bells always ring when you are presented with a special "groupon menu" that does not include many of the dishes on the regular menu. We were salivating thinking of the lamb we would be eating. Not on our menu! The bread had no flavour and was a... More

I had marinated lamb cutlets "char grilled with roast potatoes" .there was no sign of them being char grilled and... More

We were 2 couples who visited this restaurant. The owner was friendly and cheerful, all meals were served in a very reasonable time and were of good quality and quantity and this made for a happy night.
