Oh, joy of joys, I am so happy I found Demetri's, drawn to it, as I walked past, by the intimate bar opening onto the street (there's table seating at the back) and the promise of grilled sardines wrapped in vine leaves on the Specials board.

Why oh why can Sydney not do restaurants like this? A friendly bar that's vibrant but not loud, a real place for locals, where you are welcomed and served by Demetri and his amicable crew. It's the kind of place you feel like you've been coming to for years, and makes you wish you lived upstairs.

Stylish and honest.

The only problem with the menu is deciding what to have between broadbean kaftedes, feta and chilli dip, wild spanakopita; whitebait , grilled quail and, yes, succulent lamb cutlets. To name a few I tried.

A tidy wine list, and a bill at the end that won't bankrupt you. Which is not to say this isn't refined, high quality fare.

If only I could kidnap Demetri and get him to open a joint next door to me in Sydney.

Efharisto for Demetr's Feast.

We had the most amazing 'feast' for $50 a head. Octopus legs, king prawns, lamb cutlets, stuffed broadbeans... the whole meal was amazing... the service was amazing... we were so full we had to say stop to anymore food coming out. Very impressed!

Came as a group of 6 and were given an odd table curving around the corner. Food was ok (very limited menu). Service was odd w the waiter randomly joining in our conversation and constantly interrupting to ask 'are you done' about empty plates.

We had dinner at Demitri's last night. It was the best Greek food I have ever eaten. Like being back in Athens. We even had to order a second plate of grilled octopus as it was so delicious. The staff were fantastic and helpful. Demitri was very welcoming. It felt more like eating in his house than a restaurant. Even though we were stuffed full we still had dessert, delicious Greek delicacies. I highly recommend eating at Demitri's and look forward to being able to return.

Beautiful, fresh, tasty Greek food. There are some wonderful starters & tasty mains, all top quality, served by friendly staff.
Our part of 9 were welcomed by the owner & at the suggestion of staff were served a variety of share starters, each one full of flavour & a wonderful variety. Mains were equally tasty & our vegetarians found as much to enjoy as the Carnivors
Thoroughly recommended
