We had a lovely time at Mezedakia, there are plenty of places to eat in Eaton Mall in Oakleigh, but we thought we'd try somewhere a little more out of the way and were glad we did. We went very early on Friday night and were given a lovely warm welcome which was great as we weren't sure what we... More

The food at Mezedakia is mostly fantastic. Fresh and home cooked. At times the service is a bit Faulty Towers like, especially the drink service, but it's part of the charm, especially when you are getting authentic home cooked meals. I'm giving them top marks for two reasons. The consistency of great main meals that I have chosen and secondly... More

Mezedakia is hidden up stairs and turn and find (don't go into the carpark!). As we arrived a large group left. The room is a little noisy but they were kind enough to seat us in the corner. Service was prompt. The serves are Mezes - small serves Vegetarian options are ok. For main course there were three choices -... More

Food was well below average, service was poor. The waitress took one round of drinks at the beginning and did not come back again to check if we wanted anymore. Very disappointing.

The reviews that I read while researching this place, while standing out the front, were hit and miss. But once the food came, I was hooked! The service was great, maybe because my friend and I were early enough to be the first, and only, people there. We ordered the chicken wings - YUM! The saganaki - perfect! The zucchini... More

Friday dinner for 4 couples. They should give you a glass of wine just for finding this place. Two ways in, one via climbing a car park ramp. Ladies toilet had no lightbulb/globe. Waitress said she knew about it. We ordered starters including roast peppers and souvlaki. Both were great but heavy on lemon and garlic. 7 of us ordered... More

Our dinner experience last Saturday was a huge disappointment. The restaurant had staff issues but we weren't told or warned about his until we had to complain about the lack of service after we had been there at least 2 hours. We even had to ask for water 3 times and ended up just getting our own. Worse still was... More

This hard-to-find eatery in the heart of Greek food promised lots. Confusion over menu choices with my Greek friends caused some concerns because the waiter had to check continually. When the food eventually came, it was certainly authentic, especially when rated by my colleagues. Some items we ordered didn't come, and one even came twice. Simple things like this are... More

I was recommended to check out this resturant as they serve traditional Greek food and I was not disappointed. The entrance to the resturant is abit scarry and the decore is out of date but the food is very good.

This place is amazing. I have been a few times and it's always consistently good. The zucchini balls are a must.
