This place never disappoints! Food is top notch and the service is pure quality. My partner and I make sure we go there at least once a month. Great Greek food with a nice modern touch.

This was our first visit and we were most impressed. The food was amazing and came out quite quickly, the staff were incredibly helpful, very attentive and nothing was too much trouble which was especially helpful given we had our very active 3yr old with us.
I will definitely be back any opportunity I get, and I’m more than happy to recommend them to anyone.

The food is good but the service is incredibly slow. The air-con is also far too cold (this may seem minor but makes for a very uncomfortable setting).
Unfortunately, we will not return.

We have been to this restaurant a few times now. The menu has recently become a bit more simple - which was a surprise to read. But the food was still great - its really simple greek dishes ,done well. It was also great to see Moet Chandon now by the glass - my fave

This restaurant probably caters well for large groups (ambiance, menu, table seating), but for a couple on our anniversary, it was overall a very underwhelming experience.

Really enjoyed our cocktail on the balcony while we waited for our table. Staff were fantastic and made the night with their friendly attentive manners. Food was delish. Not too fancy not too plain. Loved the lamb shoulder and grain salad. Great options on menu for sharing plates amongst a group. Will be back

Five of us had dinner here last weekend, including one teenager. The food was wonderful, fresh, tasty, not fussy and complicated but well balanced and accessible.

No difficulty for teenage boys to find something suitable. We opted for ordering a number of dishes and sharing them amongst the adults. This was perfect and we had more than enough. The guidance on how much to order from the staff was much needed and accurate.

Come - you will enjoy it.

Service was patchy to be honest, can never fault the food. Just think they didn’t have enough staff on for a full Saturday night. Took forever to take our order / same with drinks. Ordered coffe - failed to arrive. We had a celiac - food came out but staff weren’t sure which was which - I’ll be back for sure, but they need to get their staff sorted.

Great food and fast to table. Would be nice to settle in with a group of friends and wine and dine away the afternoon, however there is no outdoor dining area, which is a shame on a nice day (only footpath seating which is not appealing).

Food was amazing, great value for money. Only issue we had was when we arrived we had to ask 3 times for a menu and the young waiter didn't explain the banquet options to us so just handed the menu over. We then had to wait until he returned to take the order to ask what the banquet consisted of. Apart from that a great feed and service.

Having been here a few times, the food wasn’t as great as usual. Lots of oil on the dish for my fish main and the famous chips a little soggy. One of my companions had the steak and was quite unevenly cooked. Salads amazing and the saganaki and fig entree is to die for. Service staff were great as always, disappointed they had run out of both Moët and any type of moscato... if it’s busy suggest ordering your mains after eating entrees, our mains arrived just as we were finishing entree which has happened to me twice here. If you pavlova, theirs is one of the best..easily feeds four!

The food was great as usual, the service however was not which was unexpected. We (2) arrived on time at 12:15pm and only 3 other customers were in the restaurant. The male waiter asked us to sit at a table just inside the door next to the stairs and next to a ‘walkway’. I said no, we are not sitting there thanks, he then showed us to another table again next to the walkway, I said no again and gestured to a table next to a window much further into the restaurant and said we’ll sit there thanks. The waiter brought water and asked if we would like a drink. I ordered 2 glasses of wine. We then ordered food. 1st course came but so far no wine so asked if he could chase up the drinks. 2nd course came, still no drinks. Waiter proceeded to ignore our table as the restaurant filled up. I finally got his attention and asked for how long he expected us to wait for the drinks, he said he would chase them up. Finally a wine waiter rushed over with the drinks, apologising profusely. Main course arrived courtesy of a different waiter who carefully explained what we were about to eat, a major improvement on waiter #1. Still a great place, just a very dodgy waiter.

We live in Sydney , so it is nice to go to Melbourne and have this experience of Greek food.
It was nice and different at the same time. We all enjoyed it.

This is our 4th visit and we just love it. Now we have a baby, we sit near the entry that accommodates our pram perfectly. The food is consistently of a high standard, service always courteous, but at times could be a little sharper on the attention to detail(colder champagne and extra spoon request for dessert). Anyway, we love the food, it pretty simple but really tasty, especially the half chicken and halloumi. Easy to access, clean with friendly/speedy service.
