Stalactites @ Greek Restaurant, Melbourne

So exciting to learn that it is open 24 hours. After checked in to hotel, i immediately start to look for my 1st meal in Melbourne during the winter night and Stalactites will be my 1st visit restaurant.

Stalactites, a restaurant where classic Greek dishes served in dining room with exposed stone walls and striking stalactite ceiling.

And yet, i’m too under-estimate the distance from my hotel to Stalactites, thought they locate at the same road, Lonsdale street, but at both end. My hubby and kids keep grumble at me for 45 minutes walking at winter night and i convinced them that their effort will pay off shortly. 🙂

We reached the restaurant about 11pm, still full of peoples.  Without waiting long, our foods are served.


Mixed Giro platter with marinated spring lamb & chicken


The lamb was very tender and juicy, and the chicken was really nicely marinated and seasoned. We also ordered some pita to go with. 

Lamb souvlaki – their famous & popular dish


It come with lettuce, tomato, onion and homemade tzatziki rolled in warm pita bread. The pita was airy and thin – not chewy and thick.  The tzaziki is a homemade yoghurt, garlic and cucumber sauce .
If you not the lamb lover, you can look for chicken souvlaki.
We just order these 2 dishes and it is full enough. try to imagine more than 95% are meats. Quite a heavy meal for the late night.

Overall, this place is a meat and fresh salad haven. Food is delicious and simple but authentically greek.  Open 24hours this place is a go-to for when the late night munchies strike.

It’s no frills greek food that you can get any time you wish – you can’t go wrong with that. Or, you could, but these guys have got it right. If you’re a visitor to Melbourne , you have to try this place.
