The grilled octopus is to die for and the vine leaf parcels are just amazing -- they burst with flavour. [Though we were four people -- and so ordered 4. Three were quite large and the fourth was at most half the size of the other three which we found very odd. ] We would go here again just to... More

Easily accessible in Macleay Street in the Potts Point district of Sydney ‘The Apollo’ is a Greek restaurant serving excellent food at reasonably competitive prices. Sadly, it does not take advance reservations for less than groups of 6 and whilst they do their best to accommodate smaller groups the popularity of the restaurant can easily result in disappointment, especially at...

Look it's not the cheapest Greek you'll ever have, but the service, atmosphere, staff and food are second to none. The service in particular was so slick, professional and low key - haven't had such good wait staff in sydney in ages. The set menu is good value. Only nit pick would be some vanilla bean ice cream to go... More

So good its almost impossible to get in. Although I have noticed a bit of favouritism. Nevertheless, we do persevere because the meals are magic. This time I had The Full Greek but am more than satisfied with my usual favorite, honey cheese and the slow roast lamb. Yum, at the very thought if it I may just drop in... More

Apollo is, I think, quite an interesting place.......it has very brutal concrete 21st design with a couple of (pretty useless) noise absorbers. The noise level on the Sunday evening we went was mega and, inn fact, caused me to walk straight out but a waiter came after us to see that everything was OK. The staff are great and have... More

We are locals and have eaten at Apollo many times and it never fails to deliver consistently outstanding food and service. The taramasalata is heaven, the king prawns are amazing, the octopus to die for, the saganaki cheese totally decadent, the lamb out of this world! I could go on and on. The restaurant has a great buzzy atmosphere and... More

We ate at the Apollo for my sister's birthday. The food is designed to be shared, true Greek style. It was very busy but the service was good. The pita bread is delicious, as is the oxtail pasta and the lamb shoulder is a must-have. They also do really good cocktails. The food is quite reasonably priced. The only downside... More

Location: in Potts point Ambiance: modern Lofty feel with marble bar. Host: on the top of things. Service: very good. Food: traditional Greek dishes that are cooked over wood or charcoal. We tried most of the appetizers in the menu, all were fresh and delicious. Chickpeas, salads, eggplant, spinach pie, prawns... all were amazing. I ordered the swordfish with broccoli... More

Loved the saganaki cheese with honey and oregano, mullet row taramasalata and the roast shoulder of lamb with potatoes. All was sooo good. Such a busy place that I understand why dinners get annoyed, however we had perfect service. Attentive staff suggested excellent wines and kept us topped up.
