Stathis is a wonderful addition to the great range of dultural cuisine available in the Glenferrie Road precinct. The menu is relatively simple but the quality is superb. The lamb shank main was quite stunning as was the mediterranean fish. The serbes are generous, well presented without going over the top. The Halva (made on the premisisis quite exceptional with yoghurt, honey and cinnamon topping). The atmos[here is homely and friendly, the service likewise. It is BYO wine.

Stathis serves up great simple fare. Whilst the menu is predictable, they do predictable well, VERY well! Especially the Fish! Just can't go past the butterfish! Friendly, family run restaurant that is especially good for families. For first timers, it is worth trying the banquet just so you have a taste of everything and get to know what you like.

Friendly staff, great food, beautiful surroundings. My friend wanted a drink, which wasn't a part of the menu - no problems, waiting staff listened to her description and produced it within five minutes.

I visited Stathis for the first time last week and can't speak highly enough of it. The owners have taken the trouble to create a very pleasing vibe with the decor, seldom seen to this standard in this day and age. The hospitality is downright sexy. They really make you feel like you are an guest in their home, and I did feel very much at home. It isn't about 'service'; these are genuinely and naturally personable people.

The food was outstanding. I started with Greek dips, and I don't believe I've had fresher or better dips anywhere. They were simple as they should be and truly elegant. Next course I had the spiced meatballs which were just glorious. And it was refreshing to find that the mains actually came with vegetables, which seems to be becoming more unusual these days. The owners referred to the vegetables as "a garnish" but there were enough there so that I wouldn't have to order a side dish, though I did, for the variety and pleasure of it, and the Greek salad was as good as everything else. The potatoes which accompanied the mains had been simmered with bay leaves. They were subtly but wonderfully flavoured.

Sometimes when food is this good it's tempting to over-eat rather than leave any. Other times when food is this good it is so very satisfying that one is not tempted to over-eat lest the experience be spoiled. This was one such occasion. The food is that good as is everything else.

My only regret is that when word gets out, it's going to be very hard to get a table at Stathis. I'm contributing to my own future disappointment.
