It is not that easy to find but certainly rewarding when you do. Tucked away in the George St end of the basement of the old GPO building, it offers a Greek themed menu at a very reasonable price. The food is just wonderful, the...More

A pleasant surprise finding this little gem in the basement of The Westin Hotel. Great atmosphere with quick service and attentive staff. Our food was delicious - we tried the lamb spit and baby octopus dishes and weren't disappointed. Meals are affordable and filling.

I joined friends for a drink in the bar - we ordered at the nearby Subterranean restaurant- I had trio of dips and prawn skewers, others had octopus. All were tasty and reasonable price. Others went to nearby GPO pizza. We shared a great selection.

We were very impressed to discover a new would under the Old GPO. The service was good and no time wasted in your lunch break. Food was tasty and good with all members of our party commenting how good it was. Will definitely visit again.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
