We haven't been to Salona for a while, but reckon we'll be back. We shared all our dishes and we had plenty of food. The Saganaki was delish but quite a modest serve, the calamari was very good and a decent sized starter to share, the tarama dip was yum and served with plenty of bread. We only ordered 2... More

We had a group of 12 at the restaurant. Very slow service and waiter seemed annoyed that we were ordering individually? There was no BYO which is unusual for most restaurants of this type. Dips were ok. Our main which was a meat platter for two was terrible. One rissole one sausage two chops and some diced chicken which was... More

I wasn't expecting much, but it was delightful, service was friendly and the food was excellent. Great for a casual dinner, great Greek food.

Been here a few times over the years. Restaurant has had a facelift and change of menu to a more sophisticated level of Greek cuisine. Wine list is a little limited but settled on an Australian Shiraz. Food was nicely presented and very tasty, doughnuts for dessert were excellent. Friendly, efficient service meant we had a lovely evening.

Dropped into this place with group of friends and was a pleasant surprise. The food was amazing and you'd expect to pay big bucks but it was great value. We tried their meze menu and others had their organic produce menu which was delicious. The service was exceptional and much better than other high end restaurants we've been to. They... More

We came here through a recommendation from a friend so had high hopes! The night started well as the guy who welcomed us was great and explained the menu, but then we never saw him again. We went for the 5 course degustation and up to course 2, it was great! Then they seemed to forget about us... We had... More

Unfortunately I was the one who booked in a table for 8 on a cold saturday night, so I feel responsible for the bad service that shortened our night. We arrived for an 8pm booking, sat down, needed a few extra minutes to decide on our drinks, then once we had, we needed to hail a waiter every time we... More

We had made a booking to come for dinner with a group of people. We arrived on time and were offered drinks pretty quickly. The menu isn't huge but offered a range and so some of us ordered food to share and others ordered the degustation (which is reasonably priced) Firstly the portions on the share plates are small so...

OMG. I bought a coupon and usually I never create high expectations. But this one was a little surprise. Service and food were top notch.
