Over the years Melbourne has become a multi-cultural city and now boasts of third largest Greek population after Athens and Thessaloniki. You can find some of the best Greek food money can buy in the city. One such place is Jim’s Greek Tavern in Collingwood which has been serving authentic Greek Food as you would find in Greece. It is... More

This restaurant is wonderful. The food is very very tasty and staff are friendly. This restaurant is one not to be missed when visiting Melbourne. Look forward to returning again.

Recommended by a Greek mate so I went there twice thinking the first experience may just have been a bad night, but no, turns out its just a bad restaurant. The all male service team has some very bad old apples amongst it who don't seem to understand that we are paying customers not captives. They are very arrogant and... More

My friend and I came here after a day of shopping. I'd been before with friends. This the was just as good. Everything was so fresh and so simple and just so amazing. Cannot recommend this place highly enough

What a blast from the past! It hasn't changed in YEARS is what I'm told by my boyfriends parents! And that's a good thing! Sit back and let them decide what you're eating and let the food roll out! There's no menu/prices as such but that's what makes jims so good. Just let it all happen for you!

If you have been to Jim's you will understand the attraction, if you haven't been you need to go soon. The food is amazing, reasonably priced and comes with the same attitude as the waiters, you need to book well in advance and you need to know its very popular and noisy to match. It is BYO only so bring... More

Visited this venue only because it was close to a party I was attending. And I won't be going back. The restaurant wasn't overly busy but after being seated my husband and I were then ignored/forgotten. When my husband went and found a waiter he did apologise for the oversight. He then explained that there was no menu or wine... More

Took some friends with us this time who have never been to Jims. They loved it. John our waiter suggested dips octopus whiting lamb and a great selection of Greek desert. As always it was great. The simple food cooked well without sauces etc is a consistently first class dining experience. Have a carafe or two of red wine and... More

Two couples enjoyed a sumptuous Greek feast. You don't see a menu just select from the waiters suggestions. Snapper, Saganaki, lamb and calamari were excellent. No beer, so bring your own. No idea of cost until we were leaving. $182 for 4 was reasonable. No bill splitting!

Let me start by saying this place is not a restaurant you would take someone for a quiet romantic dinner having said that the food is wonderful the noisy atmosphere makes it fantastic for a fun filled night. No menu but you don't need one trust the waiter he will well and truly look after you. Highly recommended for great... More
