Description: The Apollo is an Australian Greek restaurant that draws on the joint heritage and professional success of Jonathan Barthelmess in partnership with Longrain's Sam Christie with a keen eye to detail and the flavours of the mediterranean. Located in Potts Point, the elegantly minimalist refurbishment includes both banquette and outdoor seating, and a chef's table sitting adjacent to the kitchen - not unlike the family dining table, as a transition between dining room, kitchen and pantry.

What a wonderful meal! Service was fantastic-the cocktails they recommended were perfect. We ordered Saganaki Cheese honey oregano, pitta, tzatziki dip, Greek BBQ chicken, slow roasted lamb a beautiful radish salad & then shared avgolemno pie (like lemon pie but better) & honey donuts. Everything was amazing. Can't wait to go back!

The food was fresh and delicious. The restaurant was crowded, and the music too loud and thumping which the staff could not or would not turn down.
The waiters were quick to top up glasses so that the drinks were well supplied

We had a booking for 8 people and even though we arrived half an hour early we were offered the private dining room which annexed the kitchen. The room was perfect for us with a fantastic Brazilian marble table; the jars of pickled produce on the shelves added to the homely atmosphere. The staff were so obliging and attentive to our needs, the wine list was superb and the food was so tasty. The dishes were presented so well and unlike other Greek restaurants. All in all a great dining experience.

A group of six of us had lunch at this restaurant on a Sunday. It was full of customers and very busy. We ordered the "Full Greek" banquet and were not disappointed. The waiters were friendly and efficient and all the courses came out in good time.

The food was very well presented and cooked. We especially loved the saganaki cheese with honey and oregano and the slow cooked lamb. Both were generous servings, but overall, it was a generous banquet. It was topped off by excellent coffees.

If there was a negative, it would be the time constraint that we were under. We had to be out in 2 hours. This is no easy task when you're enjoying good food and good company.

I love it here! Beautiful interior design, professional service & fresh, tasty, delicious food. Calamari, eggplant & fish are to die for. And did I mention the potatoes? Obscenely good. Great wine list, priced well. So good to share the dishes, soak up the busy bustling atmosphere. This would be my go to restaurant in Sydney for sure, any time of the week/weekend. I never feel like I've over indulged or eaten too unhealthy after I've eaten here either, though taste is not at all compromised, it's just that the food is treated really well & come out clean,tasty & just yummy!
