Despite having been to most Greek establishments in Melb, Spitiko was one that I somehow missed. All the usual dishes are on the menu, including the buffet,. We opted for a wide selection of personally chosen dishes including mixed dips, saganaki, meatballs, sausages, lemon potatoes, salad, chicken gyros, lamb skewers which was more than enough for 4. When you select... More

Having tried many Greek restaurants in the past, this one is by far the best. All the food is traditional Greek, you have all the classic meals and drinks. The atmosphere from when you walk in and see the pictures on the wall, to when you see how your food is presented, makes you feel as if you're in Greece... More

Generous, tasty meal served with excellent service. My fiancé and I ordered one serving of seafood platter, one serving of mixed meats and a delicious Greek salad. Despite our best efforts we were unable to clear the plates and glad we hadn't ordered starters (which also looked very tempting!). Reasonably priced delicious food with a special mention of the "melt... More

Been here a few times and just visited in a group of 8 family and friends. This restaurant is perfect for larger groups especially if you take the banquet option which is fantastic value at $45 each. The only problem is we have selected this every time we have visited and we need to work our way onto the main... More

Delicious authentic Greek food, great service and the owner Yiannis (AKA John) is a real character. He was born to be in the hospitality business!

We had a great evening fantastic food, we had the set menu for 4. Very healthy portions we certainly did not go hungry. The wine and the Ouzo complimented the meal. A good set of fellow diners that helped to make a pleasant atmosphere. At the end I accidentally over paid and they returned the overpayment. A wonderful touch to... More

This is not another sophisticated "Gourmet Temple" but a nice Greek eatery with delicious simple food, friendly service in an authentic and pleasing atmosphere. We ordered a number of their entrees to share, instead of having also a main course. Together with some nice Greek wine this was a great relaxed dinner. We will certainly go back.

Went to Spitiko on an our deal voucher as we had been the year before. This year the deal was small and we left hungry. Had to keep calling waiter for service and when we complained that it was not up to scratch he said they are using Uber home delivery service and they are to busy. And it affected... More

Staying in South Melbourne

Neighbourhood Profile
South Melbourne
South Melbourne hosts the city’s oldest continuous market, founded in 1867. Rows of neatly arranged fruit, vegetables and flowers splash yellows, greens and reds along the entire perimeter, where the whole neighbourhood gathers for Saturday feasts. Inside the hall, shoppers hover over the mouth-watering displays of delicatessens and specialty food shops. Further in, a bazaar full of giftware, clothing, and kitchen utensils completes the scene. Take a break to walk the wide and shady streets and stroll along the Victorian-era heritage terrace houses. But return to the market in time for some paella, simmering in three large frypans on the footpath and served straight onto your plate.
