$41 to $100
Greek
Heritage pub turned Greek Islands-inspired paradise, Golden Fleece Hotel has brought Santorini to South Melbourne.

Entering off Montague Street, you’ll find curvaceous, stone-look tables, booths and walls (with alcoves filled with ornate vases and ceramics, and all sorts of cacti). There’s also an adjoining bottle shop where the walls are lined with vino you can take away. A level up the colourful mosaic-tiled stairwell is a darker, moodier space with jet-black booths (contrasting against flashes of red brick), as well as a pool table and DJ booth.

The rooftop is where you’ll feel most transported, as the sun beams down on the same kind of stone-look surrounds as on the ground level. Sip a fun Ouzo Sour, or a salty Mykonos Margarita to feel the holiday vibes.

The menu is similarly Mediterranean. Among the highlights: locally sourced Octopus terrine, fluffy fish-roe dip, salt-and-pepper calamari, and a delicious Yia-Yias style Moussaka.

    Great venue - if you can't get to Santorini - Golden Fleece comes close with the decor of white and blue and various grecian accessories. food was great, our server was amazing and attentive. Great value, great food.

    Literally the worst food i have ever had. I dont know how it could have been so bad but it was inedible. Would not return or recommend for food. But if you want somewhere for cute photos and a drink it would be perfect for that.

    We were recommended to come by friends. I booked on line with no option of where to sit. Our table of 4 was upstairs surrounded by patrons celebrating parties with music. Loud, yes. Around an hour later 'doof doof' music started and we struggled to hear each other. Our friends wanted to leave and cancel our dinner order. We didn't. If when reserving a table we could've selected a table downstairs I think our experience could have been positive. Given the number of patrons and the beautiful refurbishment you have a good business. A little tweaking may have resulted us leaving on a high.

    House made bread was the best part!! Food was just ok, service wasn’t great - server was nice but wasn’t very attentive or seem to know much about the menu etc. The house made flat breads were the best part they were really good! Saginkai was good too, we had chicken souvlaki and king prawns for mains which were both quite poor. Souvlaki was just chopped up chicken on a plate, no skewers and didn’t look great either. Prawns were more like shrimp, cooked and served out of their shell with the prawn heads placed on the plate to make them look whole which was strange as they have no reason to be on the plate if they aren’t attached to the prawns. The Greek salad was also quite poor, no salt or olive oil and needed a bit of love! Overall, I would probably just come here on a nice day for a drink on the roof as it’s very aesthetically pleasing but I wouldn’t eat here again!

    First time visiting and absolutely loved the vibe. The venue is gorgeous and really brings me back to the Greek island feels. Grish looked after us and he was amazing. Very welcoming and kind. The food was a little too salty and unfortunately I love lots of salt on my meals, but this was a bit too much, even for me. I was expecting bigger portions, so, that was a bit disappointing. Also, I would’ve loved to have Greek music in the background. I wasn’t feeling the house music with the rest of the vibe. The drinks menu is very rich, so, I will return for drinks only, not to dine.

    Whilst on the whole the food was very good and tasty, we all commented that the food was very salty and that was across the board, not one specific dish. With the souvlaki's, they just came with the meat and some salad (rocket and red onion) but it was extra to to add pita bread and tzatziki which I think was a bit unfair. On the whole it was quite expensive for a party of 7.

    Your web site needs updating as we were expecting the menu on the web site. It was more affordable on the web site than on site. Not much to choose from on site. Coke and lemon drinks were frizzy cordials, not coke or lemon squash. Otherwise it was good.

    We are looking forward to drinks but disappointed. We ordered of Cocktail but without alcohol and very sweet. The waiter keeps asking if you want to order a drink again, there is a little destruction atmosphere. And we had already paid cash that night, but we still deduct the cancellation fee. I hope your company will refund, because I like the environment of your restaurant very much.

    Don't get stung by the 10%, 15% and 20% surcharge. And check your bill - we were charged for a more expensive bottle of wine than what we purchased because the one we purchased "wasn't in the system". Service was great, food was average and overpriced.

    20% surcharge for public holidays is a bit rich. Took our order for Banquet, were later told no snapper. Got extra octopus which was not chagrilled more like boiled. The chicken and lamb was not souvlaki but an oven cooked wet mess. Pork souvlakia dry. I could say worst greek food I've had. Definitely won't go back or recommend.
