Menu - Mr Yum
It's a staple of the Melbourne city landscape because the food at Stalactites has a well-earned reputation as uncomplicated, traditional Greek and, if you haven’t sought a stomach-full after a big night in the city's twisting laneways, then you haven’t lived.
Owned and operated by the Konstandakopoulos family since 1978, you'll find lunch and dinner on offer. It's fresh dips such as the tarama, or chicken and lamb giros from the spit and the famous range of souvlaki is what you come for – regardless of the time of day (or night). It boasts more than just giros with meals like slow cooked lamb and the lemon roasted potatoes on the menu.
The name is self explanatory; false plaster stalactites claw at you from the ceiling, making for a sort of faux cave vibe. Though it's been updated slightly over the years, this decor remains as endearing as ever, particularly when all you need is moussaka at the end of a big night.
