Melbourne has so many excellent family restaurants and this is one of them. From the moment you enter you are made very welcome. The service is very friendly, efficient and one gentleman in particular was very funny in a nice way. You are covered in all ways with the menu - you can just have a single meal or do... More

First time to visit this restaurant. Recommended by Greek friends in Melbourne. Spitiko I understand means something like home made in Greek and the meals definitely had a feeling of good home cooking. First time I have ever been told to order the smaller meal in a restaurant as it was still ample eating. Luckily we listened to the advice... More

Despite having been to most Greek establishments in Melb, Spitiko was one that I somehow missed. All the usual dishes are on the menu, including the buffet,. We opted for a wide selection of personally chosen dishes including mixed dips, saganaki, meatballs, sausages, lemon potatoes, salad, chicken gyros, lamb skewers which was more than enough for 4. When you select... More

Having tried many Greek restaurants in the past, this one is by far the best. All the food is traditional Greek, you have all the classic meals and drinks. The atmosphere from when you walk in and see the pictures on the wall, to when you see how your food is presented, makes you feel as if you're in Greece... More

Generous, tasty meal served with excellent service. My fiancé and I ordered one serving of seafood platter, one serving of mixed meats and a delicious Greek salad. Despite our best efforts we were unable to clear the plates and glad we hadn't ordered starters (which also looked very tempting!). Reasonably priced delicious food with a special mention of the "melt... More

Been here a few times and just visited in a group of 8 family and friends. This restaurant is perfect for larger groups especially if you take the banquet option which is fantastic value at $45 each. The only problem is we have selected this every time we have visited and we need to work our way onto the main... More

Delicious authentic Greek food, great service and the owner Yiannis (AKA John) is a real character. He was born to be in the hospitality business!

Staying in South Melbourne

Neighborhood Profile
South Melbourne
South Melbourne hosts the city’s oldest continuous market, founded in 1867. Rows of neatly arranged fruit, vegetables and flowers splash yellows, greens and reds along the entire perimeter, where the whole neighborhood gathers for Saturday feasts. Inside the hall, shoppers hover over the mouth-watering displays of delicatessens and specialty food shops. Further in, a bazaar full of giftware, clothing, and kitchen utensils completes the scene. Take a break to walk the wide and shady streets and stroll along the Victorian-era heritage terrace houses. But return to the market in time for some paella, simmering in three large frypans on the footpath and served straight onto your plate.
