We were walking past this restaurant and made the best decision and walked in and asked for a table. We ate Saganaki, whitebait, dolmades, gyros and salad and enjoyed every bite. Great service, we will be back.

This is the restaurant where I first experienced Greek food, and I make sure I try and get there each time I visit Melbourne. The meat platters, seafood and desserts are divine, accompanied with service that is second to none. The owner always makes my family and I feel so welcome and I always look forward to going back.

Have been to this restaurant a few times and found it to be very good. Was passing early in the evening and being hungry decided to see if Lemnos was open yet. Being about 5.30pm my wife and I were the first customers for the evening. Although we were not remembered having not been there for quite a while, the... More

Always try to get to the Lemnos when in Melbourne not on business. Very solid menu, the platters are top rate and desserts of high quality. Most importantly the service is first class and this place has genuine atmosphere. Well worth the hassle of going out to the High Street in Prahran for this little gem if you are a... More

Went with group of colleagues. Staff was friendly. Sometimes too friendly, interrupting our conversation with their comments. Basically imposed their recommendation. Food ok. Nothing special, typical Greek.

Decided on Greek cuisine for our anniversary dinner and chose Lemnos as the venue. It was the perfect choice. We selected the $55 set meal for our party of five - saved any arguments over what to choose. It ended being about 9 or 10 different courses, served one at a time, which was perfect for getting the best out... More

We love coming to Lemnos - it's close by to home for us and some friends of ours. Staff are always welcoming. Lots of big parties of people with long tables, and great atmosphere. We always get looked after very well. We also always overeat as the meat and seafood platters are amazing. As is the chargrilled octopus and the... More
