    Great food, drinks and service. It is just a 2 minute walk to the Comedy Theatre, so is a perfect place to eat before a show

    Very noisy, too many tables and got very hot inside which made the dining experience uncomfortable. Would have loved it to have looked more Greek themed. Salad was more a garden Greek salad than a traditional Greek salad which was disappointing. Overall had a nice time for the occasion but probably wouldn’t go back.

    booked time day before online which was quite easy to do. They did not have our table for 6 ready when we arrived but did organise one straight away. Food was excellent and was reasonable value which was good. Service was friendly. Would definitely go again when next in Melbourne

    We were a party of 7 seated upstairs on a hot January day - air conditioning was not turned on until we asked and tables were so close to the serving area we had to move each time a waiter needed to access the bar - wasn't a relazing experience. Food however was wonderful and if we went again would go with a smaller group and ask for downstairs seating.

    We had booked table for 8. Glad we did as line down the road to get in. Had Coeliac with us and the restaurant is so accommodating, brilliant and we will all go back as food is tasty, best we’d been to during our stay in Melbourne.
