You will love that place, tarama, slouvakis, Greek salad.... All the authentic taste of the Grece is there. Nice place, nice design, very smiling owners who will take care of you. A good place to eat.

This Greek restaurant was well located in the CBD and was average. My haloumi was a bit over cooked and the whole barramundi was good, but not spectacular. The greek salad had yummy tomatoes. Nothing amazing, but not bad.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
