My friend and I decided to out for dinner last minute on a Friday night. We walked in to be told the restaurant was entirely booked out, but if we wanted to wait at the bar we'd be seated ASAP (which we were). The atmosphere was friendly, including a live musician, and all of the staff were very accomodating and... More

This is a good Greek restaurant masquerading as a cheap n' cheerful taverna. The staff are friendly, service was quick and the food was good. Prices were mid-level, but it's licensed, which always add something

We quite frequently have lunch at manolis. This time I dined with my sister Inlaw mother Aunty and my toddler. The food is alway nice, although on this Occassion I had the chicken souvlaki skewers instead of my usual open yiros and found the meat a little lacking although the tatziki and chips were delicious so i definitely filled up...

Casual Greek restaurant with good service. The menu is extensive with a wonderful selection of share plates. Whole sardines and chicken livers even form part of the menu. The food was good, certainly worth a visit.

Love coming here for the yummy lamb open yiros. They also grill very good haloumi cheese, and I also love the grilled squid which is very fresh! The service is good, and the restaurant is very clean. On certain days you also get live music. Definitely one of my favourite places in Darwin.

Love Greek food and this up there. The lamb chops were to die for, very tasty and juicy, and the moussaka was a great meal. The pricing was pretty reasonable. For choice on the menu we thought their could have been more available. That's the only thing that we could pick, staff great and friendly. Thanks for a great night.

Had lunch here with a Greek family, who said the food is authentic traditional Greek style. Love the setting with the blue & white, staff are friendly and helpful. We had a selection to all share. Greek salad, calamari, octopus balls, mixed dips and pita, lamb chops and livers. Washed down with s lovey red and followed by a selection... More
