Meet the Greek

Meet the Greek

Meet the Greek is no ordinary taverna. The Mougios family, Brighton Le Sands veterans for 30 years, birthed a warm, neighbourly haven that blends tradition with tasteful innovation. Through food, they’ll teach you “how to be Greek.” Translation? You will learn to enjoy life as you make your way through their epic menu.

Start with homemade dips and fresh pita with feta slabs, karvelli bread, saganaki, and feta filo parcels. Then venture into prime lamb and pork souvla, marinated for a full day in Meet The Greek's secret herb mix. Greece may have invented democracy, but Meet The Greek certainly rules Brighton Le Sands' culinary scene.

Kazzi Beach Greek

Kazzi Beach Greek

At the edge of Balmoral Beach, Kazzi Beach Greek stands as a delicious tribute to Kastellorizo's coastal delights. It's not just a run-off-the-mill taverna; it's a passport to “Beach Greek” bliss. Here, the flavours of Hellenic cuisine come to life, transporting diners to sun-soaked Aegean shores with every bite.

Affordability meets authenticity, making it a family favourite. You can eat your weight in Greek delights without breaking the bank. Begin with meze stars like grilled octopus and chargrilled prawns alongside tender spit-roasted meats or try their version of Greek brunch. In our opinion, Kazzi’s eggs saganaki and fig-mascarpone toast, with a touch of the owner's secret sauce, can easily start your day on a high note.

Stix and Pita

Stix and Pita

Stix and Pita on Enmore Road is far from your typical Greek joint. It's an authentic find for those in search of Greek street food that truly hits the mark. Their succulent meats, slow-cooked to perfection over natural charcoal, steal the show. Just take a look at the Hercules Platter, a carnivalesque parade of stix and souvla meats, halloumi, calamari, corn, housemade dips, and handmade pita. But let's not forget the chips – piled high with herbs, spices, and feta or kefalograviera cheese.

The ambience is unpretentious, but the food is the real deal. It's like a little piece of Athens tucked away in Enmore. Whether you grab a seat or opt for takeaway, you'll be coming back for more. Stix and Pita brings Greece to your plate, minus the airfare. So, go ahead, tuck into a slice of Greek heaven right here in Sydney.

Norma's Deli

Norma's Deli 

Walking down the stairs into Norma's, you're immediately transported to a charming and busy Greek deli. If you can peel yourself away from watching the bakers work their magic in the open-planned kitchen (they're seriously hypnotising), it will take you a while to choose just one or two delights from behind the glass window of glorious treats. Honestly, between the buttery croissants, nonna-approved baklava and other drool-worthy creations, it's like picking a favourite child. They offer both a lunch and breakfast menu with standouts including the tzatziki, egg and cucumber, the taramasalata toast, Norma's pastito and their zesty spanakopita.

M.I.M 1821

This warm and friendly restaurant is a respite from the bustling streets of Sydney. The collaboration between two families, M.I.M exists to bring the energy and flavour of Mykonos to the table. Large communal tables and dishes designed to be shared encourage a sense of community. The Kalamakia Lamb Skewers topped with oregano and drizzled with lemon are a crowd favourite so don't miss them. Sitchu Tip: Sample the chef's top picks with M.I.M's set menus.

The Apollo

The Apollo

If you have a penchant for saganaki cheese and charred calamari, then The Apollo is the Greek restaurant you need to visit. Their take on Mediterranean flavours (with a strong focus on Greek food), along with a smattering of dishes cooked over wood and charcoal, is out of this world. And indulgent. You’ll be left wishing you had a spare stomach. To get the most out of your experience, opt for ‘The Full Greek’ that showcases The Apollo’s best of the best. For just $70 per person, you will be beyond satisfied with the eight-dish banquet – think baked saganaki cheese, tangy Greek salad and slow-cooked lamb shoulder slathered in creamy tzatziki. Plus for just $5 extra per person you can add ouzo – which is the properly Greek thing to do!

Atmos Shoal Bay

Although it's not strictly a Greek restaurant in Sydney, Atmos at Shoal Bay Country Club is so good we just had to include them in this list. Atmos is an homage to Greek cuisine, with set menus named after Greek hot spots, mezze and share menus. Our absolute favourite dish sanganaki with fried cheese, honey and walnuts and even a baklava-themed cocktail!
