Our sophisticated Greek tavern interiors mimic the direction of the food: a contemporary menu that finds its roots in authentic Greek cuisine but manifests itself in a modern Australian twist where simple but refined taste is everything. For those who wish to relish their dining experience al fresco-style, our staff will lead you to our spacious balcony that offers a fantastic view of the Yarra River. The view is exceptionally captivating at night as lights sparkle from the skyscrapers, adding a chill vibe as you feast with friends and loved ones. The décor is second only to the cuisine, which focuses on casual Greek cooking. The best example is the hearty moussaka, made with layered fresh eggplant, potatoes, beef and topped with rich creamy bechamel.
