    We had the best service, very professional and attentive. Excellent food and plenty of it. The meat platter for 2 was very generous, tasty and superbly presented. Thankyou Yassas for a great evening.

    Busy, noisy place but staff seem to manage very well and stay pleasant. We usually go there pre a show at Hamer Hall or Arts Centre so we order the gyros which is always quick and delicious. We were with other family members, everyone had something different and everyone enjoyed their food. We were on the balcony, it was a beautiful night and we were looking over the river. Very pleasant. Will definitely return

    We had very poor service and the vegetarian options were very poorly cooked. The stuffed were very plastic like in texture and seemed like it was placed under a heat lamp for a long time. The capsicum dish with rice was very mushy and did not taste like much. And we waited for 45 mins between entree and main as they forgot to put the orders through for our mains. And for the standard of food we got, it was very disappointing and expensive.

    The ambience and view were lovely but the service was bad. It was hard to get someone’s attention to take our order. When we did receive the food, it was a lot smaller than what you pay for!

    The food was quite bland and not authentic greek food. The prices are too high for the quality of the food. If you get an outdoor seat, the ambiance is nice

    The food tastes good but very pricey for the quantity, also we had an emergency situation made us 30 minutes late to the table and the staff refused to extend some more time. And 3 of us ordered the food earlier than the rest but they got the food a lot after the rest of us only when I spoke up and asked why the food hasn't arrived yet.

    Rats were visibly present in the outdoor area where we were seated. We mentioned this to staff several times and no accommodations were made (they didn’t offer to move us or shoo away the rats). Quite disappointed in the whole experience.

    head server was rude. swordfish was extremely dry, stuffed mushrooms was drowned in melted cheese. the hommus was really good! but we did disliked the eggplant dip as it seemed flavourless. chips seemed like they were cooked in old oil. we were hoping the meat would be a saving grace but we didn’t enjoy the lamb either. we ate what we could because we were hungry but wasn’t worth the price. soft drink we received was flat. the other waitstaff we encountered were very nice, accomodating and polite. thank you for having us but we didn’t enjoy our night here.

    The taste of the food was beautiful but the quantity needs to be evaluated based on price. Had one pita bread for the platter of 2 and salad you get more with an open platter for 1.

    Few do calamari or lamb as well as well as Greek restaurants. The calamari in particular, lightly dusted, weas very good, the lamb tender albeit slightly overcooked for my liking but that is a matter of taste. Overall a very pleasant experience overlooking the Yarra.
