Greek food that doesnt quite live up to the standard expected by the surroundings and the local area (where Greek restaurants are very good). They can lift their game.

We have been to this place several times over the past few years, and given that there have been various owners, we always expect it to be as good as it was when it first opened. Alas, we were mistaken. There is a Cafe Greco restaurant at Knox, which is excellent, and as they have the same name, and the same owner, one would expect the menu and quality of food to be the same. How silly of us! Apparently the executive chef at each restaurant gets to decide on the menu, so where the Knox restaurant has an extensive, varied menu, and a wonderful dessert selection, this restaurant has a small, boring menu and hardly any dessert selection! They didn't have have gyros...and instead, offered us a wrap, which was delivered in a paper wrapping...for dinner!!!! Can you believe that? It was basically exhorbitantly priced take away food, and as a vegetarian, choices were lacking. Not even dolmades were on the menu...pathetic. The most disappointing factor was the primarily empty dessert fridge though....the Knox restaurant has a choice of at least 18 glorious desserts, which sit invitingly in a cabinet at the entrance to the restaurant. This place has a huge cabinet, with about 4 shoddy looking desserts in it and none of the beautiful cheesecakes that we are used to. Anyway, the experience was extremely underwhelming, the menu appalling, the service average, and we have no desire to return. Do yourselves a favour and travel a little further to the Knox Cafe Greco - you won't be disappointed.

My wife and I went out for a 30 year wedding anniversary and had plans to have an early dinner then see a movie while we were in Westfield Doncaster. We picked a place called Cafe Greco, looked good…. BUT disappointing as the service was very poor it was a Tuesday night and there would have been about 20 people there in total we ordered an on tray to share and 2 main meals the on tray arrived within 5 minutes followed by the main 50 minutes later in-between that time nobody asked if we wanted any drinks. When the mains came out after waiting 50 mins they even forgot part of the main meal keep it in mind there is only 20 people in the hole of the restaurant. The meal itself was average but service needs serious attention ….7/10 for the meal… 2/10 for the service and in saying that I will never go back.
