This is a delightful restaurant where the atmosphere is perfect for an enjoyable experience of Greek cuisine. We loved everything about this restaurant and vowed to return. The staff were so helpful they made us feel special.

Perhaps I may give 9/10 if this is an option. For food, I have seen better. I was somewhat confused if it were traditional Greek food or a 'fusion'. For service, it was typical of its category. Ambience is perhaps limited by its floor design,...More

Very disappointed as this Greek restaurant has lost its direction: Had a mousaka with an Italian sauce; had a souvlaki with all spice. That is not Greek! Whilst eating staff were lifting tables and chairs away. Girls behind large counter were rude and not welcoming....More

A fantastic fine dining restaurant that is surprisingly very reasonably priced. My only issue is that their signature slow cooked lamb is so utterly delectable that I don't get much of a chance to try anything else on the main menu unless I am lucky...More

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

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
