Melbourne has hundreds of good Greek restaurant, Cafe Platia is in Camperwell, We wanted an early dinner so the owner welcomed us at 5pm and entertained with tales of family and food and Greeks in Australia.

Eight of us dined here for our six-monthly gas-bag, and had an excellent time. Their set menu provided lots of genuine Greek food, served by waiters with a suitable level of attitude, and always ready to join in the conversation when appropriate. Not as good as Laikon in the 70's, but nothing is.

When in Rome you get roman. Melbourne may have the largest Greek population but this restaurant FAILS in flavor and EXCELS in bland. Lamb should reek of Greek but it was... More
