Greek food made by a Greek guy. This is the philosophy at Swan Street’s Demitri’s Feast. Well that, along with a celebration of Melbourne’s freshest, seasonal and organic produce.
Fresh, healthy and authentic Greek food is what you can expect here – if you don’t mind the wait that is; getting a table here is almost always a challenge. However, once seated (most likely on a giant olive oil tin cleverly transformed into a stool) a feast indeed you shall have.
The menu is made up of genuine Greek dishes and other modern classics with just a discrete nod towards a particular Mediterranean coast. The salmon to befriend your poached eggs will, of course,
have been cured in ouzo; the French toast happily adorned with baklava.
Greek memorabilia lines the walls, from ouzo bottles and furniture made from giant feta tins to postcards and miniature sculptures of Greek gods. The shady courtyard out the back is canopied with hanging plants and herbs, and is a great spot to enjoy some crispy whitebait.
