Stalactites Greek Restaurant, Melbourne
My very first Greek meal was at Stalactites, and left a very good impression with constant cravings of meat and cheese goodness ever since. I’ve returned to Stalactites on more than a few occasions, and its late hours on drinking nights have been a definite saviour in post-drink munchies. Any dinner here is going to be a compete one and even a single souvlaki has served well to finish an appetite. The restaurant has a chunk of seating so other than a packed floor it isn’t too bad at busy hours, and the store appropriately has a ceiling full of stalactites as decor.
A better sharing option is going for the mixed giro platter and ordering some seperate pita so you can assemble your own bites. We did well ordering an appetizer platter to start, giving us a great mixture of Greek favourites such as tzatziki, hommus, eggplant dips, dolmadakia, feta, olives, smoked pork sausages, beef rissole and lamb skewers. Our favourites were the homemade dips, dolmadakia and the sausage. The meat at Stalactites is tender and flavoursome, the chicken was the better of the mix for us and it’s the same if going for the souvlaki. The menu is pretty extensive here if you want something a bit more traditional but you can’t really go here with anything involving the meat.
