Stalactites has been one of the best places to meet and enjoy great Greek food for decades in Melbourne. I have eaten there many times and the food has always been at a consistently high level. It is a relatively small restaurant and is always busy. This time I had the very tender Lamb Soulva on Skewer @ $34 and then a mouth watering Homemade Baklava @ $8.50.
Get there early at peak times.

Love their gyros , mix dips and open souvlaki. Can be pricey but worth it.

We are there often with friends or family.

Food Ok but but rude an terrible customer service would never go back
Was on a business trip and needed separate bills, prior to ordering we confirmed with the waiter that he could do this and he confirmed we could split it out when we paid
On attempting to pay a very rude cashier said he couldn’t and points to the small print in the menu and Quote “This is not America “

I went to Stalactites with a couple friends for breakfast, and ordered the lamb souvlaki (closed) and Greek coffee. The food was pretty good, but not quite what I was hoping for given the rave reviews here. The wait staff were a bit short with us, although not to the point of being rude; it felt as though they were imploring us to eat and go.
