Foodies of Melbourne, there is a new hub for Greek street food in town and you’re going to absolutely love it. ENA is simple, fresh, innovative and yet traditional, taking ingredients and cooking methods worthy of a family meal in Greece and transferring them to the modern dining and shopping precinct of the Southgate Complex. We know you will be charmed by ENA’s menu, made up of Greek favourites as well as house specialities taken from earth, land and sea. There are small meze plates for grazing or banquets for feasting, as well as a phenomenal wine list. Whatever mood you’re in, this fine restaurant of over by the water in Southbank will have the right Greek cuisine for you. Reserve a table now.
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.
Delicious food and great service. Perfect for a quick meal. The gyros is always a winner and if you can get a table on the balcony overlooking the river it’s perfect for a balmy evening.
We had the weekday $79 special which included a beer/wine, entree share board, main of various meats, then dessert, for two. Food was delicious, no waiting around, great service, and a great location right on the river with beautiful views across to Flinders Street station.
Great location, truly delicious food, wonderful staff and our table was ready and waiting for us on our arrival. Thanks to the staff for the birthday candle and sparkler on my dessert. It's these little touches that make a difference.
