Went to Greek district looking for a delicious souvlaki/giros. Found it here. Very nice and huge. Very good. Think I might need to head back again before leaving Melbourne. Just can't find giros' like these in Greece. Not sure why they suck over there, but...More

Stopped in for a quick bite. I had the lamb Souvlaki which was a good size meal and exceptionally tasty. Service was very quick and very friendly. I'll be back again.

We had to wait on a Saturday night to get a table but it wasn't that long a wait. The food was faultless and the price was pretty fair. If you want Greek in Melbourne CBD, this is your place!

Greek food can be delicious when done properly and it certainly is here. Having had many a dodgy kebab in my time I can very happily say the lamb at Stalactites was very good. Keeping it simple, we ordered a large plate of the lamb...More
