We had dinner here on a Wednesday night - the food is absolutely delicious. Really tasty and fairly priced. They have a good amount of Vegan options - I ordered the 3 dips platter and as they only have 2 Vegan dips they were happy to swap the 3rd dip for Dolmades. My partner had the Lamb Koftas and said they were also really good.
Good location and there are outdoor heaters because it can get pretty cold as the restaurant is outside.

Holy crap, this place does some great lamb: tasty and just melts in your moth. We went twice last week - once for the Sunday Spit special and then later using a First Table voucher. The tzatiki was also fantastic and we are huge fans of the eggplant chips and the roast vegetables!

Staff are friendly and it is a nice place to sit and eat, however there are some things that could have happened a little better:

* Surcharges on all the gluten free options added up and took the shine off, especially when one item (the chicken wings) was listen on the menu as GF but we charged an extra $3 as it was apparently GFO.
* Being charged $3 for GF pita with the eggplant dip but there really isn't enough dip on the plate, meaning we were left with expensive pita that we had nothing to eat with and on it's own it isn't that nice. For the price, it didn't feel like great value.
* We ordered the kids meal but the staff forgot both the juice and the paddle pop. They did provide each when we reminded them however.
* The greek salad is terrible. The tomatoes used are watery, pale and bland and it's been this way for two years in a row. As a hallmark side dish, that needs to be done a lot better as it let down the delicious moussaka we ordered and felt like a waste of money when we'd ordered it as a side earlier in the week.

While the lamb is well priced, the other dishes feel over priced especially for what you gwt which just means if we come back, we'll stick to that amazing lamb meal with the roast veg and tzatiki and those eggplant chips! The rest really feels like it needs a bit of work but are saved by these.

Yum the souvlaki was way better than expected. So hard to get good souvlaki out of Melbourne but this surprised us. Great chunks of lamb that fall apart and delicious bread. Could do with more sauce! We will be back

We just had a very enjoyable and delicious Sunday lunch. A mix of meza and spit roast meats was so tasty I would highly recommend. A great selection of beers & wines to choose from. And to top off a great lunch......Greek dancing and plate smashing, so much fun. Staff were very pleasant.

My wife and I had dinner at here during the week. We opted for the meat banquet for two, the meat was melt in in your mouth, it was accompanied by chips, greek salad and dressings. We enjoyed every aspect of the meal and in the end there was a little bit left on the plate which we both guilty about not finishing. The setting and atmosphere were very nice and when it got bit chilly, the waitress wheeled over a gas heater for our comfort. Congrats to the owners and staff for an enjoyable experience. If I'm back in Cooly I'll be back.
