What do you recommend?
It's been a while since I last ate there. It was all nice but the thing that is quite hard to forget is the fried cheese with honey appetizer. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it 🤤
Yes. Saganaki is quite nice. I love their lamb too . And they also have one spread with cod roe. Very nice !
i’ve never been a huge fan of lamb, I’ve always found it a little too gamy for my liking. I’ll look into the cod roe spread. Sounds interesting, what is it served with? Just a regular pita bread?

I was lucky enough to spend about 8 months working down there in '93~94. Worked on the Gold Coast, Darwin and W. Australia (namely Broome). Greek Restaurants everywhere.
Wow, I wish I had that luxury. I’ve only really been to the more touristy parts of Australia- Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra.
Cairns is the only touristy place I've been in in Aus. But that's because all my trips to Aus have been work related. Usually spending a minimum of one month up to 5 or 6 months in a location while administering a Seismic Survey vessel offshore.
Life isn't about avoiding the bruises. It's about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it!

My very first trip to Australia was in the late 90’s. We flew into Brisbane and I rented a car and drove to the Gold Coast, then we took the coastal road down to Sydney, saw the three sisters, and then we continued on down the coastal road all the way to Melbourne, stopped off to see the penguins and drove the Great Ocean Road as well, then flew back from Melbourne. My goal was to see the most that we possibly could in just 10 days, and I have to say… I think the goal was achieved.

Have you been to Perth? It’s one of my favorite destinations on the planet, and it’s a relatively short 5 hour flight from here. First time we went there I was just driving around and we didn’t even have a hotel booked for the night. We drove past this one tall hotel right on the beach and I turned the car around and checked the prices, ocean facing room was only like A$160, double my budget at the time, but well worth the splurge! We ended up staying there the entire time, and each time we’ve been back, we always stay there — the Rendezvous Hotel on Scarborough Beach.

I ended up going to Perth several times on business too, and got to know the restaurant scene. The higher end restaurants are an amazing bargain compared to here. You can get a nice juicy premium eye filet (mignon) steak for just A$30! Easily half, if not a quarter of the price here, considering the quality.

I agree with you on gamy lamb . I don’t take it at most of the places but I make exception here . Good cut and medium rare .

Yes , like a spread with pita bread .

How interesting, I’ve always wanted to travel and experience life as a local, seems like you have had the luxury to experience that.

I’ve always wanted to take a road trip across Australia, and to visit the Great Barrier Reef. Finally had the opportunity to do so in 2012 (if I’m not mistaken). Truly an unforgettable experience.

i’ve never been, always wanted to though. Steak sounds amazing, other than being cheaper it’s probably a lot fresher too considering all the farms they have there.

Pictures look great and prices seem reasonable as well, seems like many others agree on this place, I’ll definitely have to give it a go.

Lamb is typically the meat I avoid most, along with pork. I’ll give it a try though, have to try everything at least once.

The best lamb I have ever eaten was in downtown Adelaide at this middle eastern restaurant… they had these skewers with big juicy tender chunks of lamb, they practically melted in my mouth. I’ve never found anything that can quite match up to that!
