I have visited the Apollo twice for dinner and both times the food and atmosphere was fantastic. The taramasalta is the best I have ever had. The vibe is fun and energetic. Waiters are knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. My one gripe is the long wait...More

I had to take a Greek friend out for a meal and thought I'd try a Greek restaurant since we live in an area with limited Greek culture. We were offered a table or a seat at the bar and took the bar option which...More

We had pre-booked and arrived on time for a family Sunday lunch. Once seated we were advised to order our food quickly as we had to be out by 2.15 pm as our table for four (and only our table in the whole restaurant) was...More

We came here for a Christmas lunch with 10 friends and opted for the set menu. It did not disappoint and everyone left extremely happy and full. Lamb and haloumi dishes were top notch only let down was the desert. Great for groups!

Like other reviews mention, I cannot understand why it's an institution. The people and atmosphere here ruin it for me. But the food is very decent and service also good.

We have eaten at The Apollo a number of times, and we are always excited to be back. The octopus and lamb are spectacular, as is the service.

ordered the saganaki, eggplant salad and pita bread. For mains it was the BBQ octopus with peppers and the lamb. It was average and it is the tzatziki with the lamb that was the stand out component. The lamb was slightly dry. Service was substandard....More

The Apollo is an Australian Greek restaurant that draws on the joint heritage and professional success of Jonathan Barthelmess in partnership with Longrain's Sam Christie with a keen eye to detail and the flavours of the mediterranean. Located in Potts Point, the elegantly minimalist refurbishment includes both banquette and outdoor seating, and a chef's table sitting adjacent to the kitchen - not unlike the family dining table, as a transition between dining room, kitchen and pantry.
