Booked a table for 4 for lunch. Good selection of food and beverages. Prompt and attentive service. They had a specials board with interesting dishes. Entrees were dips prawns and haloumi all very good. The spatchcock was good too. Highly recommended.

Had dinner with friends. Shared the Meze platter then had the moussaka, swordfish, roast lamb, Greek salad, and chicken kebab. Followed by baklava, Greek coffee and ouzo. What a wonderful meal and very reasonably priced too!

Given the ratings of this restaurant I expected really good greek food. However I have had much better souvlakis, haloumis, tzatzikis and filled tomatoes in less expensive greek restaurants (in other countries). Even the greek restaurant in my small swedish town is better! Having been...More

We are very curious as to what your idea of authentic tzatziki is.. our Greek chefs would also like to know. maybe you should stick to your greek restaurant in Sweden.

We didn't have a booking for Medusa but they accommodated us effortlessly. The food was very nice and the moussaka is highly recommended. The service is great. The only disappointment was that the ouzo ice cream only had a hint of ouzo in it and...More

Attended after reading other trip advisor reviews and not disappointed. Staff were friendly and attentive, food was beautiful, the lamb shoulder fell off the bone, and the cutlets were a taste sensation.

We stumbled on this place by mistake and really liked it. They could not be more accommodating and the food/service was brilliant. Great value for money in what is an expensive City.

A great idea and good execution, that is, until something better comes along. A perfect triumvirate of flavors, leaving you in want of more. Prices are reasonable compared to other places, but then again, each person has their own idea of reasonable. Came here a...More

Had a really tasty meal, starter of Ozoo soaked scallops, not quite traditional Greek, but a good modern twist, everything about the place was good, I would happily go many times to Medusa

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

It’s pretty reasonable and there is a good selection of plates to choose from. It will be cheaper if you go with at least one other person and share a few plates. I can’t remember if it was BYO but it would say on their... More

Certainly not a speciality but then as the previous comment says that's just not a Greek speciality. This is traditional Greek and man it is good. I'm sure the lads would accommodate a request though
