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.
Great spot for some authentic Greek street food in the heart of Melbourne CBD right by the Yarra. Highly recommend
Ena is always delightful - friendly staff and fast, efficient service! Plates are a generous helping of fresh delicious food - the gyros is a crowd favourite.
Great location and atmosphere, yummy food , lovely attentive staff and best of all they serve ouzo for my husband so we could enjoy a drink together. Not many restaurants serve his drink of choice
We were caught short because the Greek meat platter required 2 hours' notice. This was disappointing, and perhaps that could be stated on the website. But the food we did have was excellent, and the service was faultless. We have since been back 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!
My first visit to ENA. We were a little late but our table was still available and had a good view of the city. The menu was great. My glass of wine was not very good and was replaced promptly with a different brand. No hassle and very polite and friendly. We enjoyed our starter (eggplant) and the gyros- we both had lamb. it was perhaps a little salty, and overcooked in part, but was overall good. We would be happy to return.
I loved that, having booked on line, the restaurant was ready and waiting for me and my friend. We were greeted at the door,like old friends even though we had never been there before. The waiters were so helpful and attentive, and we could not believe what brilliant seating we had been given. The food was delicious and the whole experience was customer service plus. Highly recommend this restaurant
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.
I have eaten at Ena several times. The food is delicious greek cusine whether you get fish or calamari or moussaka. Service is quick particularly if you get the gyros. They also have a very cheap souvlaki takeaway option if you can't get a table or can't afford to eat in the restaurant. This is a great go-to restaurant on southbank for pre-theatre meals.
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.
My overall dining experience at ENA Greek Street Food was great. The service was warm with friendly and attentive staff. The food was tasty and plentiful. I would certainly revisit.
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. 😅
Service was good. Food was a little disappointing - the Cretan Rusk was replaced by a piece of toasted bread, however when I pointed it out to the waiter he was very quick to remove it from the bill. That was good. The Kataifi tasted old. Calamari was very good but no dressing at all on the accompanying salad. Spanakopita was good too and salad was fresh
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 service was excellent. Waiters were friendly and accommodating. We needed to be served quickly as we were going to the ballet. The food was fresh and very tasty. We would thoroughly recommend ENA and we will return soon.
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
Beautiful food, great service, lovely restaurant and fantastic location. Was fantastic and we are already planning our next visit. The dips were home made as was the moussaka and cabbage rolls - just delicious and highly recommended 👌🏼
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.
Food is great but you need to grab a right/experienced staff to get served. A waiter forgot my drnk order, so I asked a waitress to check it but she never came back to me. Eventually more sinior waitress fixed everyhting for me, but I had to wait for 30 min to get my first drink!
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.
The food service was very prompt and the staff extremely courteous. The food served was nice and hot, and the dips to class. The Souvlaki served was really delicious though it could have been a bit warmer. Overall very good and will definitely return
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.
Good quality, inexpensive Greek street food. Service is efficient, friendly and casual - all questions answered with honesty and very helpful. Meal service very prompt. A great experience and will definitely be going back.
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!
The staff were wonderful. One of our group had food allergies which they were able to cater for. The food was delicious and aplenty. Will definitely go back and also recommend to others.
Superb in every way. Absolutely outstanding. First time at this restaurant. Couldn't fault a thing. Authentic food and music. Staff friendly . Huge serves. Great value for money. Definitely be back ! Jane
Food and wine were nice. The gyros plate was good value, although the lamb portion was a little dry. Shame the wait staff were so busy - they were lovely people but just too many people to look after, not enough staff. We waited 20 mins to get menus.
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.
What a great Mothers Day. Loved the live music the atmosphere the service and of course the food. Ena is our favourite restaurant for great food and service. Thanks Ena team
We had a great night, the food scrumptious with a delightful smokey flavour to the lamb. Hilarious confusion over our 2nd glasses of wine which was attended to very well :-)
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!
Great venue, lovely setting, great welcoming staff, making the service excellent. The food was awesome and look forward to coming back. Thank you to the staff for a great experience.
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
Friendly Staff, well served and the food was on time as per request when booking was made. Tables well located beautiful view, check in and check out very expedite.
Fantastic feast. The food was delicious. The service was excellent. There was a Greek band playing too. I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a wonderful experience.
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.
The food was delicious, we tried the saganaki and the Gyros. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had a really good time. We will certainly go back.
Great location, great food, great service. Ambience was also excellent. Food & wine menus were wide ranging. Price for food & wine was also very reasonable. Highly recommend.
Good food at a good location. Our table was looking out over the river. The smell of greek herbs and spices and roasting meat was tantalising. Most enjoyable.
This place has great service and nice food. The location is beautiful, with a lovely view over the river and the city. They were very considerate in providing a table with wheelchair access.
