Cannot praise this place highly enough. Food was the best we have experienced outside of the pelopenese in Greece, moderately priced and served by excellent staff. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone travelling to Melbourne.

Stalactites serves the best Greek food I have tasted. The service is great and the staff are always friendly. It's open 24/7 and offers sit in, take away or delivery. A very popular restaurant.

Mouth watering Greek food from Gyros to Moussaka - open 24 hours, this has got to be the best Greek food in the country- with the best Greek service to match!! Amazing.Can't wait to go back.
