We stopped for a very late lunch, or very early dinner depending on your perspective of meal times I guess. The place was busy. Off hour busy usually means great food and great service. Stalactites did not disappoint ! The lamb souvlaki and salad was...More

This is one eatery we haven’t visited for long time. Maybe because it is always very busy and parking is very difficult. After seeing an art exhibition with family we were driving through the city and decided to stop for an early dinner. As we...More

I have been here 3 times and can not fault the food and service. Most delicious Greek food I have ever had, and always look forward to visiting each time I come to Melbourne.

Just lovely. We were a walk in on a Sunday night expecting it to be dead. We were very wrong. Absolutely packed but despite that the food arrived quickly and was tasty and fresh. There’s a reason it scores top.

Very nice place with warm welcoming staff. The waiters (not greeks) were not all so kind but service was quick. Feta and saganaki were really good whereas the calamari were not (not fresh). Price is ok. At the end my dinner was fine.

A busy restaurant and food is good. Nice service from the restaurant manager, but not some of the staffs.

Sunday night at 830pm, this place was buzzing and it was easy to see why! The food was fantastic, generous portions and a great casual atmosphere. Lots to choose from on the menu and reasonably priced.

Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
