Our son had eaten here and recommended we go for dinner. We reserved a table online then had to delay our arrival due to circumstances. The management and staff could not have been more accomodating even though the reservation time had become unclear. I had the BBQ octopus for entree and main was the signature lamb cutlets. Both were perfectly... More

Small Greek restaurant, some unusual dishes e.g.white bait. You can easily make a meal out of entrees. Tasty, authentic food. Went there twice within our 5 day stay in Melbourne, to try out more things. Good customer service.

Lovely food although the restaurant had run out of Kleftiko at 20:30. Our waitress was pleasant but not engaging, even when we used our limited greek language to engage her. The waitress at a nearby table was having a long and smiley conversation with her customers, we were quite jealous. Would recommend the food, not so sure about the service....they... More

Not impressed with the food or the service at this restaurant. Waited over 45minutes for our starter.. grilled Calamari, was so tough that I couldn't cut it. It was very chewy and tasteless. Waited another 30 minutes for our main course.. The Tsindos speciality, lamb, chicken and prawn kebabs. The meal consisted of two small kebabs, lamb and chicken with... More

This is a great place to find traditional Greek food at an exceptional level of quality. The mixed grill was a perfect way to get to taste this wonderful meat cooked perfectly. Beautiful wine, attentive but not intrusive service and a family that loves it's business make for a perfect place for dinner. Our first time here but definitely not... More

Enjoyed our meal here - were a tad disappointed when we rocked up one night earlier as they had run out of everything, which seemingly is a norm, and a good sign. So, we were sure to rock up earlier this time. Enjoyed the moussaka very much, and hubby loved the giros..

Great night. Alex the manager was terrific. Food Greek and wonderful. Couldn't complete the banquet due to the generous serves. Family with 4 adult children and even they were full. Would highly recommend it. X

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
