Was not sure what we would get when we went in. Not a modern interior but was very pleasantly surprised. Great basic dishes cooked well. Service was fast and friendly. Portions were large. Meat was cooked just right. Everything very tasty. Would recommend.

Whenever we go to Enmore/Newtown this is the place we eat. Great great food, fabulous and friendly table service, generous portions, nice vibe. Kafenes ticks all the boxes. Remember to book on Saturday nights because it does get busy.

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...More
