On a busy Saturday at 6pm we sat outside in the protected area on the footpath. Inside was already nearly full. It was a little slow getting started with drinks and glassware, but once we got our mixed dips, we were on our way. Mains arrived 30 minutes later. The slow cooked lamb dishes were scrumptious. The quail was also... More

This is our local but it is so good and so authentic that we regularly take friends and international visitors there. Without exception, our Greek friends credit Kafenes for its authenticity and, for me, the place can't be faulted. Try the slow cooked lamb or pork or any of the barbecue dishes - while everything is good, these are something... More

Been meaning to go here for quite a while and finally made it. Food is excellent, you could close your eyes and think you were eating in a Greek village restaurant. This is not a fancy place but if you are looking for something quick and tasty and enjoy mediterranean cooking, this place is perfect. The restaurant is also nearly... More

Had a quick supper after a show at the Enmore Theatre. Just 3 meze plates, but enjoyed them all, in a bright friendly atmosphere

We love Kafenes. The friendly, homely ambiance - we are treated like family! The Lamb Exohiko is absolutely amazing! It is delicately spiced and is so tender it falls off the bone. Thanks Maria, Sonia & Melissa for all the memorable meals we've enjoyed with you! The only downside is that it's sometimes difficult to find parking.

The food was great, simple, just like your Nonna's cooking. The ladies serving us were so nice. I have wanted to eat here for ages and was not dissapointed. I ate the moussaka, yummy i

Run by a true Chef this is one of my favourite restaurants where everything is produced by hand. Always fresh and exciting. This is where I take clients if I need to impress. Really enjoy the Zuccini Rissoles and Giouvarlakia Soup (during the week only).

This busy and atmospheric restaurant never fails to deliver. We over-ordered (as usual) because it's simply too hard to choose from the excellent menu. The pumpkin dumplings, lamb and dips were standouts. The staff are knowledgeable and efficient - they have to be as it is so popular. The restaurant is fully BYO and, for the quality of the food,...
