Firstly the good things - service was great, but the food was very disappointing. He had moussaka - pretty much like a bad shepherds pie, I had octopus - outrageously overpriced, tough (alarm bells went off when served a steak knife to eat it with)...More

The small section of Greek precinct next to the larger Chinatown precinct has this delightful Greek restaurant. The extensive menu will appeal to any taste. It is all authentic Greek cooking! Live music once a month. Late lunch made for an open setting, but I...More

We were walk-in customers to this little restaurant. We had the $58 dollar Greek banquet for 2, and I think I am still a bit full up 18 hours later! Very tasty food - hard to really say a favourite, but the sausage was superb....More

Ordered the 58 $ banquet, more than enough food, plenty of robust garlic and salt flavours, great 8$ Corkage byo in the city! Toilets need updating, service good, atmosphere just right for a Friday, clientele generally 40 + which is good for us !

We were there Easter Sunday night for dinner. Gyros was inedible, lamb chops were ok but bone was burnt and the potatoes were cold and the broccoli pale and limp. Think the waitress didn’t know what to say to us. The owner was at a...More

Calamari was a bit bland, & came with a minced garlic dip which as far as I could tell was just minced garlic. We had the gyros as a main course and it didn’t taste very nice. The pork souvlaki was ok though. I’ve had...More

Highly recommended - started with the Sardines with Moussaka to follow. Disappointed with the latter as it didn’t live up to the rave reviews. Great food and top service though, and wonderful wine. Excellent evening

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
