The moment we stepped in the door we were treated with open friendly wait staff. We were given the menu to make a very tough selection - SO much to choose from. Presentation and quality were amazing. The flavours exploding in your mouth. The venue offers a good selection of wines to compliment your dining experience. We will be coming... More

Unfortunately, it looked like a great spot. No table service, order at the counter. Vacant tables left unattended by the previous patrons. 25 mins for a coffee, mixed cup and saucer. Appeared that there was no organisation with meals coming out and the servers not knowing where to place them. Not organised at all.

We came here really looking forward to some genuine Cypriot Greek cuisine. At the very least we expected decent food. Every dish, besides the taramasalata and the veg mousaka was not fresh. It all appeared and tasted like it had been reheated. We hardly ate the dolmades and left some saganaki (who leaves saganaki!?) and no questions were asked. The... More

This restaurant is located along the riverbank, close to the casino and the arts center. The menu is varied. I had the salmon and mashed potatoes, which was lovely, cooked to perfection. The waitress was kind enough to substitute a small salad for the cooked vegetable. Coffee was good, people-watching was good, and the staff were very congenial.

The restaurant was busy which is great to see, the staff started out pretty attentive. The three of us ordered entrees and three different mains..the meat and chicken on all plates were dry and flavourless. We weren't approached again to see if we required anything else. We partly cleared our own table and then were told that it was too... More

Noisy place with live music, a loud banging outside door which needs repairs. Toilets were tiny and broken taps/sink in female ones- needs repairs. Door handles fell off the office each time staff went in or out- time for some money to be spent and repairs made. Owners not looking after the place. In prime position could be so much... More

On a busy Saturday night on Southbank in Melbourne and in the middle of the Melbourne food and wine festival my husband and I managed to book a table at Othello's. It was the second time we have eaten here and we were very happy we returned. You don't leave hungry after a visit to Othello's. If you are looking... More

I wonder what the kitchen guys do when the microwave doesn't work? Dolmades so hot that they burnt my tongue. This us not how to serve Dolmades. Same thing with the Loukaniko, microwaved. When I addressed the waiter about it he straight away said that the Sieftalies weren't microwaved without denying the others weren't. As I'm getting close to finishing... More

Halfway between Euraka 88 and the river Front in the southside.... It is a great place. The wife had a Greek salad which was fresh and done right. I had a steak which came out terrific. Wide assortment of beer and wine. Nice atmosphere. Good staff!
