Very nice Greek restaurant that is very authentic and offers several lamb dishes. We came to Medusa based on Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. A bit overpriced for the quality, but still very good.

We arrived about 7:30 pm, no reservation and were seated at the last available table . The service overall was excellent. The owner is active among the guests. We ordered one Greek salad for the 2 of us and it was huge. The tomatoes, unfortunately, were not very good - more like a hard hot-house type. We each ordered lamb... More

My family and I love Greek food, so we had high expectations for this place, especially since it's the 7th most popular restaurant in Sydney on TripAdvisor. The first sign the showed we'd be in for a treat was when we arrived at around 6:00pm on a Monday and the restaurant was almost full. The waiter was incredibly friendly, while... More

As I write this review, Medusa Greek Taverna sits as the #9 TripAdvisor restaurant in all of Sydney. Having now dined there twice across two different visits to Sydney, regrettably I must say that this ranking is way, way too high. The service and ambiance are fine, but the food, while decent, is nothing to write home about and is... More

A group of us had a very pleasant and enjoyable business lunch today and the $44 banquet menu proved more than adequate. Service was excellent, wines sensibly priced and we will be back again.

What an amazing night! Was served by a lovely young, beautiful, Italian waitress (maddalena) who was just absolutely lovely and amazing and helped out so much! Even went out of the way for the best way to drink our wine. Food was amazing! Plenty of it as well. This is now our place to go! Thanks so much! See you... More

Authentic Greek food with exceptional service. The waitstaff was attentive but not overbearing. The food was fresh and delicious. I highly recommend the Tzatziki (the pita bread served with it is amazing) and the fish of the day which was barramundi served over garlic mashed potatoes. A must in Sydney!

We had expected really more for a restaurant with a top 5 rating in Sydney! We feel it is a average Greek restaurant (this is meant in the positive sense), but there so many great restaurants in Sydney I totally in disaccord with its rating.

My sister and I visited Medusa and received a very warm welcome. We were given the best table, right by the window. I recommend making a reservation. We shared the prawn saganaki for our entree which was out of this world! Plenty of prawns and perfect to share, especially as the main portions are very large. For our mains my... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
