Love this place. Go there quite a bit with work colleagues and it's always busy. In saying that though, the service is always great and the food is even better. Never had a bad meal at this place, highly recommended.

My wife enjoyed the Athenian special – a combination of Greek lamb, papoutsakia, stuffed capsicum, cabbage roll & mixed vegetables while I dove into an excellent salmon fillet with the usual trimmings...

It was recommended by the hotel staff and they were right. Demetri waited on us and he did a fine job. I had the lamb shoulder and it was fall off the bone tender and delicious.

A group of friends and I meet once a year at this excellent eatery for some years now and it must be said it is one of the most consistently good restaurants I have encountered. Excellent food, fantastic service and a comprehensive wine list make this place one of my favourites.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
