Let me start by saying this place is not a restaurant you would take someone for a quiet romantic dinner having said that the food is wonderful the noisy atmosphere makes it fantastic for a fun filled night. No menu but you don't need one trust the waiter he will well and truly look after you. Highly recommended for great... More

I used to love going to this place. It was wonderful to sit outside on warm summer evenings. But now all covered in and people are squeezed in like sardines. So noisy you have to shout. Alas not for me any more

First time dining at Jim's greek tavern and we loved it. Our waiter organised our dishes on what we wanted to eat. Great choice. Lamb was so tasty and I normally don't eat lamb. Seafood was fresh and the scallops were some of the best i have ever had. We bought our own drinks , beer and wine which we... More

Visited Jim's again recently with friends and had another excellent Greek feast. The grilled octopus was tasty and cooked perfectly. Main courses of lamb, calamari and salad were good size, tasty and delicious. You always know what your going to get at Jim's and despite the non exotic glass ware etc it is always a good night out where you... More

Jim's Tavern has always been a place I've been told about as being closest to the greek tavern experience. So I went with my dad as we both love food. It was...look the food is fine. Tasty. But there's no menus. And no prices. The waitstaff suggest dishes, you say what you want and the bill comes as a complete... More

We started with Saganaki and delicious fresh dips, followed by delicious lamb, calamari, scallops a Greek salad and finished with a custard cake. Over all food was yummy and we will def go back. Price was $146 inclusive of the BYO wine fee.

What a great restaurant. Advised by a friend to visit Jims and very glad we did. Excellent food and atmosphere. As expected the noise level is high. No plate smashing but still a great night.

If you love greek food and you struggle to find a great souvlaki, this is the place to be. Only thing I don't like is it can get too busy and you have to be out by a certain time

As a Melbournian Greek, we all know of Jims' Greek Tavern, and we've all eaten there! So when my HK friends decided to stopped over and said they were hungry for Greek food, this is were we went. Jims did not disappoint, no menu, no worries, we knew what we wanted anyway. The place was packed, and the service was... More

Feels like Greece, food is amazing there is no menu you just tell the waiter what you feel like and he brings you the food. Had great saganaki (grilled cheese) with dips, a huge bottle of wine, a Greek salad with lamb and dessert. Would highly recommend
