We visited the Greek Spot on Saturday night - totally packed !

Our meal started with the trio of dips - all delicious (tarama, tzaziki and eggplant) plus a saganaki - also delicious and a very generous serve. For our main meal we shared an entree size grilled octopus, lamb gyros and a medium salad. The octopus just melted in your mouth. The lamb gyros was delicious (and served with some fries) and the medium salad was large - and also had lettuce in it.

The prices were really reasonable and so at the end of the night I ordered the baklava ($5) for a large triangle - the highest piece I've seen (looked more like a piece of cake) AND OMG - it was absolutely amazing. It oozed with delicious honey liquid that wasn't too sweet and the balance in pastry, liquid, nuts was perfect !!! WOW !!!

The young guy serving us was brilliant. The young lady was great in clearing but could have asked us if we wanted dessert, etc.

And The Greek Spot is also BYO - which is brilliant.

What can I say, we visit the Greek Spot at least every fortnight.
We love their food - especially the grilled whiting (best in Melbourne) and we love the service.
Thank you Helen - we will continue to visit you regularly.

A firm favourite when the winter is drawing in and the smell and reminder of lazy days on a Greek island is essential. Reliable food, nothing flash but always tasty. The gyros and whitebait always deliver. Worth hunting out but better still, book and don't be disappointed.
