Greek street food in the heart of Melbourne? Opa!

‘Messy Greek street food that matches your drinks’ is what you’re promised when you dine at Gazi, Melbourne’s premier purveyor of relaxed, traditional Greek dining. And we just have to say: this restaurant does not disappoint!

If you’re looking for stuffy, pretentious food and service, then Gazi is not the place for you. The food is amazing in its conventional simplicity, with options catering to the appetites of vegetarians and meat-lovers alike. Oh, and let’s not forget the desserts. Pavlova, sorbet, loukomathes… your sweet tooth will be on Cloud Nine.

But Gazi’s pièce de résistance is definitely its drink list. The restaurant claims to put as much thought into its cocktails as its dishes, and the result is palpable, featuring traditional Greek flavours like rosemary, olive, Greek yoghurt to name a few. However, if cocktails aren’t to your tastes, never fear: Gazi boasts a wine selection to die for, with reds and whites sourced from local vendors… as well as one of the biggest selection’s from Greece! If you’re really going for the authentic flair, try one of their many varieties of Ouzo, an anise-flavoured aperitif widely consumed in Greece. Stinygaisu!

Of course, nothing complements good food better than great service, and the staff members at Gazi are among the best, demonstrating professionalism, efficiency, alacrity and knowledge. Our waiter provided recommendations from our wine selection to shared plates and was well accustomed to accommodating fussy foodies’ likes and dislikes. So don’t be afraid to ask questions or solicit advice from your server.

The venue sets an ambience for a nice, relaxing meal with no fuss. You can choose the more standard tables-and-chairs seating option. Gazi also provides long tables with bar stools, allowing for boisterous and fun conversation. Alternatively, if you’re up for dinner and a show, sit near the open kitchen and watch the chefs at work.

Gazi is not, perhaps, the most romantic of dating destinations, but it is cosy and comfortable and great for a good time. Your date is sure to be impressed with the delicious food, sharp service and the authentic Greek dining experience! Reserve your table online now and Greek out!
