We walked in off the street looking for a nice place for tea. With 3 fussy kids it's always a challenge trying to find something that everyone is happy with and Salona certainly hit the mark. The staff were friendly, attentive and accommodating. The food was spot on too, quick service and delicious. Definitely recommend to others!!

Located In Richmond, not far from the city and surrounded by many other restaurants, including some very good Greek restaurants, is Salona, a Greek restaurant that serves traditional food with a modern twist, yet retains the good quality old-fashioned level of service and old-fashioned wall décor. We really liked it. For me, the highlight was saganaki cooked with a poached... More

Our dinner last night was our third time at Salona. I enjoyed a perfectly prepared lamb for main. I can only recommend this restaurant.

We had dinner at Salona mid week and the seven of us had a really nice meal. We were unsure of what to have so simply told the waiter to feed us. The calamari was absolutely superb, cooked perfectly, so tender, the croquettes delightful and the kefte a surprise star. The Smoked Grill was nice although the portion size was... More

Food small portions, not very nice- they couldn't even get the kebabs right. Very expensive, PLUS a credit card charge to boot! Don't bother, go next door to Agapi for great food and service

We haven't been to Salona for a while, but reckon we'll be back. We shared all our dishes and we had plenty of food. The Saganaki was delish but quite a modest serve, the calamari was very good and a decent sized starter to share, the tarama dip was yum and served with plenty of bread. We only ordered 2... More

We had a group of 12 at the restaurant. Very slow service and waiter seemed annoyed that we were ordering individually? There was no BYO which is unusual for most restaurants of this type. Dips were ok. Our main which was a meat platter for two was terrible. One rissole one sausage two chops and some diced chicken which was... More

I wasn't expecting much, but it was delightful, service was friendly and the food was excellent. Great for a casual dinner, great Greek food.
