Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Attended a birthday dinner, the birthday girl ordered the banquet for the table and all I can say is that it was absolutely delicious from the start to the finish from the dips to the dessert and coffee. Service was great too, thank you for...a great night.More

Family celebration for a couple of birthdays The food was excellent no complaints from any member of our party. My wife has always baulked at trying Greek food but announced "I would definitely go back there" The gyros were fantastic and the Greek meatballs and...potatoes that I had were brilliant. The service was top class and the wait staff looked after us with the birthday cakes. Do yourselves a favour and give it a tryMore

We have been dining at Eleni’s Kitchen + Bar for years now and we absolutely love it. The food is delicious and serving sizes are very generous! We usually order the Eleni’s banquet as it provides a great variety of their menu. The staff are...great and service is always prompt. The tavern night is a must experience with live music, dancing and plate smashing. We always have a great time!More

We went for lunch to share birthdays and had a range of plates to share: Whitebait (by far the best, fish juicy), saganaki, octopus, potato, and Greek sausage Char Grilled Lukaniko (definitely the worst dish... very strong sulphur taste and very, very salty!). It was...ok apart from above comments. We asked to be moved from a 2-seat table at the front because the table next to us had small, noisy children. We were put in a 2-seater next to the kitchen door. No problem, as it ensured the food was delivered and cleaned up quickly. Our meal cost $100 with a $13 drink each.More

Definitely need an empty stomach if thinking of trying one of these Greek banquets. Similar to every Greek banquet I’ve ever done, they were generous serves of a lot of different things. Always starting with the bread and dips, which were pretty good but I...think I’ve had better in Melbourne. The meats were all great and cooked well. Potatoes delicious. Actually heaps left for take home packs for some in the group. Loved the galektobureko dessert too. A happy diner indeed. The tables did feel a little squishy but a nice atmosphere. Some belly dancing for entertainment and some plate smashing with music and dancing out the back - now I don’t think this is standard but thoroughly enjoyed so look it up!More

Being Greek and surrounded by gun cooks (wife, mum, mother in law, sister...) the bar is always high for any Greek restaurant. This place rocks! What I lived was the service from the moment we sat down, the atmosphere, and the selection of mezedes. We...ordered dips, octopus, zucchini stuffed flowers and a few other bits n pieces and everything was spot on. Then came the pork skewers, lamb and chicken gyros plates.. wow! Meat was tender, perfectly seasoned and not bombarded with spices so you could taste the pork/chicken/lamb. Well done! Can't wait to come backMore

Beware, the serves are large, so come with friends and an appetite. Other Greek restaurants might concentrate on grilled meats, but here there are oven baked items as well. Service was good and I was brought ice water without having to ask. My Moussaka was...delicious and I chose well with a Zeus beer and a bowl of Tzatziki to go with it. I would have liked to try more things, but I was completely full.More

Extremely expensive for average food Platter as per picture $95 nothing stands out. The accompanying salad was mostly lettuce with a tiny piece of feta. Not a greek salad Accompanied tzatziki portion tiny no more than a tablespoon. No pitta. Saganaki tasty but hard. For...the price paid go buy yourself a whole lamb and pit it in the spot insteadMore

Great Greek Food Food was great, we had the Elena’s banquet which consisted of dips, a seafood platter and a lamb/meat platter followed by desert. We were so full we needed to go and have a siesta. Staff were very attentive and service excellent. Will...definitely return for future meals.More

Only take away available because of lockdown. Asked for pickup at 6pm but 6:15 earliest. Ordered meat platter for 2. A Tiny portion Of tzitziki and the Salad was missing. No chips so paid $10 for hard overcooked with sprinkle of feta. Needed to Order...pita as well. For $120 we received seafood And meat plater. Very small portions of tasty dips and a slither of red pepper that was counted as a dish. Tasty but would have liked more between 2. The saganaki was a hard piece of dried cheese unable to be eaten. The seafood consisted of one prawn each, a tiny piece of fish less than 10cm and a portion of tender calamari. The meat plater contained in the same box was a lamb cutlet, tiny rissole, 1/2 a sausage and mixed Gyros. Lemon potatoes were cold. Both platters and potatoes were in same box container. There was one pot in of dessert, did the forget one or were we supposed to cut in half? $200 and a lot of disappointment later Except for total failure of the saganaki flavours were ok just felt I paid a lot for a little.More

If you're looking for authentic Greek cuisine cooked to perfection then look no further. The seafood and meat are expertly cooked over the charcoal grill, accompanied by the most delicious lemon potatoes and a perfectly dressed Greek salad. Don't forget to leave room for some...home made Galaktoboureko for dessert. The friendly staff and welcoming environment are the icing on the cake. The multiple function areas are such a versatile space for any function. If you want to feel like you're in a Greek village ask to be seated in Dimitri's garden.More

It is fully licensed so I am not sure about BYO wine maybe worth a phone call to ask.
