The food was outstanding, as was the seamless service. We had the lamb and moussaka - both of which were the best Greek food we've had outside of Greece, except for my Grandmother's cooking. Portion size is large. Octopus appetizer was excellent. Highly recommend.

Located just up the hill from Pyrmont Bridge the Medusa is a 5 minute walk from Town Hall Railway station in Sydney. Friends took us there and they have been going since it opened many years ago. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food delicious and not fatty as Greek food can sometimes be. Highly recommended.

We love Greek taverna food - and the Medusa is our favourite Greek restaurant in Sydney. I am a vegetarian and I love Gemista (stuffed vegetables Greek style). Also I cannot eat cow dairy products, but can eat goat and sheep dairy products (something I only discovered when we were in Greece last year) - and the goat and sheep... More

I'd visited this restaurant a few times over the past 5 years, and enjoyed them all. When I took my family there this weekend, it started off well, but quickly became very average. We had a wonderful Meze plate as a starter, but ordered two lamb dishes for mains - one came out well over cooked and the other very... More

My wife and I dined here while in Sydney for our wedding anniversary. We loved the food and left stuffed full. My wife enjoyed the taramasalata so much we took the rest back to the hotel with us. Definitely one of the best Greek restaurants we've ever been to. With lovely staff and service.

We stumbled on this restaurant on our way to Darling Harbour and were so grateful that we did. The Greek salad is a must. We split it because it was so large and we didn't want it as a main course. It was just like the ones we had in Greece, no lettuce just cucumbers, tomatoes, green pepper, onion and... More

The five of us ordered separate meals from the extensive menu and none of us was disappointed by our choice. Fresh, authentic Greek food, served by efficient wait staff, in very pleasant surroundings.

Thank Susan K

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
