They say that one of the best diets to adopt if you want to live a long and healthy life is the Mediterranean diet. Of the Middle Sea styles, Greek cuisine is particularly light, vibrant and natural. Luckily, this is exactly the focus of the menu at Melbourne’s ENA Greek Street Food, currently the hottest restaurant in Southbank for authentic Greek cuisine, getting it right every time. Located inside the bang up to date dining precinct of Southgate, diners visiting ENA will find a clean, modern space to eat and drink, decked out with fitting chairs of blue and white as well as a gorgeous outdoor patio – you know from the moment you enter that you’re onto a winner. Staff are attentive, knowledgeable and genuinely happy to be serving their guests with Greek food that they know is some of the best in Melbourne.
The menu at ENA, although laced with traditional ingredients and cooking methods, certainly does not feel out of place in this contemporary Southbank spot. Small plates of meze are available should you only fancy a nibble, the moussaka croquettes with dill yoghurt or the soutzoukakia meatballs are both divine, as are the classic homemade ENA dips to keep on your table at all times. When it comes to mains, there are Greek staples all over the place – think grilled octopus, slow roasted lamb shank with olives or a classic Greek salad complete with feta. All ingredients are superbly fresh and locally sourced where possible, while the meats are cooked over coals on a slow rotisserie. Finish with a glass of fine Australian or Greek wine and it’s quickly clear ENA knows precisely what it’s doing. Melbourne, enjoy.

Handy central location, fast service, friendly attentive staff, generous portions and delicious food, what more could you ask for. Thank you very much Ena staff!
Great food and helpful staff and menu selections Loved the music and it was a great night for me and parents celebrating their anniversary of 29 years together Thank you for an enjoyable night Will be back soon
Yummy Greek food, good service will be back again. Lamb was tasty, saganaki yummo! If you like Greek food this is the place for you
Fab food (make sure go hungry cos the portions are big). Very pleasant friendly staff who were quick to serve, will definitely be going again
The food at this restaurant was lovely, simple and tasty. There was plenty of it and the serves were generous. The service however left quite a lot to be desired. We had to ask for menus when they didn't come after 10 minutes. We ordered drinks and quite a while later the waiter came over to ask if we had them, which we did not. Our main courses arrived but we had no cutlery, it had been removed with our first course plates. The wait staff were no where in sight so my husband went to the wait station and got us cutlery. We had ordered a second lot of drinks to come with our main course, they came when we had nearly finished, my husband had ordered a gin and tonic and received a gin and soda. We didn't bother with a replacement, just ordered coffee, which came promptly. The service was friendly but it was just all over the place.
Food was delicious! Initially, the service was great as the wait staff accommodated our need for speed as we had a show to go to afterwards and so our food was served quickly and we had enough time to eat and enjoy it. However, the service standard reduced when it took 15 minutes for our order of a latte to be served but we were compensated by not having to pay for it. Ambience and atmosphere of restaurant was very nice. Overall, I would definitely recommend this restaurant but if you have a show to go to ensure you have more than an hour at the restaurant to enjoy a stress-free dining experience!
Great location, enjoyable food with generous servings. Friendly staff. Boys had lamb souvlaki, lamb gyros and I enjoyed the calamari. Not as much as the lamb. Roasted beetroot salad with poached figs was enjoyable but nothing to tie the flavours together. We went as family with three pre teen boys who were almost defeated by the souvlaki. We will go again and try more of the appetiser as these looked very good on the next table.
Absolutely fantastic, sat on the balcony overlooking the Yarra River, the service was impeccable, staff were lovely and friendly and the food, an abundance of delicious fresh food. Will be back again and again and again. They deserve a pat on the back for the way the restaurant is run, a fantastic night.
Arrived a little early which was no problem for them on a busy Friday evening. Greeted and seated promptly. Drinks ordered and menus offered. Our selections of saganaki , calamari, spanakopita and lamb souvlaki were all delicious. The souvlaki was very generous in size. Out table on the enclosed balcony was lovely on a warm evening. We will recommend and will return.
Nice restaurant, good location nice food. I think that the dishes were nice and quite authentic meals. I had a Greek lasagne Pasticco however it was more like pasta bake. Still tasty but not the original way of cooking this meal. Most staff were helpful however, was disappointed in one waitress who was extremely rude! Would of given this a 5 Star but lost a pony because of that. 😅
First visit and very satisfied. Last minute booking for one and requested a table with a view which they accomodated. Really enjoyed the meal, especially the greek potatoes. Only criticism is that the falafel was a litter dry. Service was attentive and helpful. I will return with company next time :)
The food was good, so much food! We felt a bit rushed through the first few courses. We were able to take our leftovers home which was great. We left the dessert selection up to the waiter and it seemed like he gave us more of the least popular one and less of the most popular. I would still recommend ENA.
Food was amazing. We ordered dessert from the options we had. They brought us something else. We asked the staff the reason and the girl said they were out of what we wanted.They could ask us to choose something that we preferred. They were under-staffed as it was fully packed and took quite long for us to be served.
The restaurant is in a great location. We had a table on the balcony and it was perfect. Staff and food were excellent and the pricing is reasonable . Highly recommend booking in advance and dining at ENA.
We absolutely recommend ENA for a superb Greek Feast - All servings were of great quality and flavour in true Greek style - extremely hospitable servings and a lovely glass of wine to complete -- Well done.
We first visited Ena for a family dinner. We had one of those discount coupouns and honestly went in with minimal expectations. We were pleasantly surprised. Excellent food, huge servings, top location. Worth a visit.
Food and music was good, customer service was patchy, however, they were friendly. No one to check booking when I arrived, had to approach staff. Had to pre order our selection for everyone even though not all guests were present. Then we didn't even receive the item that we preordered!
Nice position in Southbank. We weren't told about "specials" menu when order taken which had some items we would have preferred to try over printed menu. Nothing special about food and price point seems high for what you get. Wouldn't avoid it but not compelling enough to return.
The whole experience was excellent. The staff and service were great, location perfect for what we were after. Food was good too. Have eaten there before which was why we returned.
it was a wonderful experience. service was friendly and efficient. food was good. 2 dishes we didn't like much: the calamari was chewy; greek donuts were yeasty and dense! otherwise all were good. Would recommend to others.
The service was fantastic and the service excellent. My mother is gluten intolerant and nearly everything on the menu was safe for her to eat, which is a rare thing!
Delicious food, relaxed vibe, friendly staff - perfect on a summer's evening. A seat on the balcony provides fantastic views over the Yarra River and back onto the Melbourne CBD.
Loved the food, big plates to share, well priced wine. Very friendly and efficient staff adds to atmosphere with live music. Can be a bit hard to hear but everyone had a great time. Nice atmosphere
Great food with perfect location, service was good with generous servings and the restaurant has a modern fresh feel with a slice of Greece - will be back again
The food was to die for and the service was excellent! Definitely taking friends there 😁 The dips with the pits bread was unbelievable. Can't wait to book again.
I'm pretty sure they forgot to put our drinks through, so we reminded them. It wasn't a big drama though. The gentleman was very helpful, and just looked like he was a touch fluttered/stressed. The food was amazing and everyone was very polite.
Great Greek street food, fabulous location & excellent service. We no longer have to drive to Oakleigh for good Greek food & the view is so much better.
Delicious and interesting selection of modern and traditional Greek food and cheerful service . The venue is nicely situated overlooking the Yarra River. This proved to be good pre-theatre choice for dining. Thanks
Lovely ambience, super friendly staff, great food and excellent value for money! Even better if you score a table out at the balcony on a summer night!
Wonderful setting. Lovely food. Staff very helpful, friendly and accommodating. Flavoursome food. Nice menu choice and clear wine list. We had seafood platter which was a delight.
Great service and attention to children's requirements. Reasonable on the pocket with good portion sizes. Second time I have been here and highly recommend a visit.
Loved it! Plenty of food highly recommended... Would definitely go again. Food was fantastic. Live band with a roving musician. Great location right on the yarra
Great service and friendly Beautiful food and atmosphere loved the open cooking and the aroma of fresh food Salads incredible and so fresh Nice wine selection
Amazing food, great service and large mains! Loved it! Strongly recommend the Saganaki and if you are having some beverages the Mythos is a great choice.
The location was lovely overlooking the Yarra. The service was excellent, the waiters friendly and prompt, the food and wine was delicious. We had a wonderful time and would definitely return.
Good food and attentive service. We went on a voucher deal and well worth the money we spent. The restaurant is in a good location and the decor is very modern.
Very nice food and helpful waiting staff. It was an ideal location on a sunny day in Melbourne. Will certainly return. Yum Yum Yum Yum
We had a excellent experience. We were on our lunch break and was served immediately and meals came quickly. Great service and great food!!!!!!1 kala
Friendly staff and great food to share with friends. Perfect outlook with Yarra river just next door Wonderful on a sunny autumn day with friends
Exactly what we wanted, the balcony table with a perfect view. Attentive staff even though the were busy. Food was to die for, 5 Stars.
Ena has a great friendly, family feel. Good staff and tasty food. Meze selections are the best and don't forget to order the watermelon salad.
Food good. Service a little slow, especially for coffees, but didn't really matter as it was lovely weather sitting on the balcony and my overseas friend and I were able to sit for ages catching up.
Great food and great service! We sat on the balcony so had a great view of the Yarra. Would definitely recommend this place on a beautiful summer's day.
Excellent mixed gyros meal - very generous portions of meat and chicken, chips, pita bread salad and tzatziki. Very tasty. Good quick service and they split the bill
Great food and staff were attentive although drinks did take a whike to arrive - worked well for the table of 10 we had & everyone enjoyed
We enjoyed everything we had. Olives, chargrilled octopus, lamb shank and tzaziki dip with flatbread. Open and bright interior. We will go back, this time with friends.
food was average had a modern twist and we want authentic Greek food , green veggie was spinach and not HORTA seafood skewers where slightly dry. we had OZO and it tasted horrible
We enjoyed our dinner at ENA. Nice food, and atmosphere. Not too noisy, which is a major criteria for us. Friendly service, but a little slow. Perhaps teething problems for a new venue.
Great atmosphere, delicious fresh greek meals. Seating out on the balcony was fabulous on a warm balmy night. Attentive staff and a time had by all.
great food, amazing banquet, lovely staff, lovely view of the yarra from the balcony on a warm night. live Music fitted in with t he atmosphere
