About George’s Greek Tavern

Iconic Melbourne Greek restaurant George’s Greek Tavern has undergone a major revamp, and while this proud outpost for Greek cuisine in Malvern East has retained the character and charm – and the charcoal spit – that locals know and love, its new look is supremely modern. Still very much a family-run affair, guests at George’s Greek Tavern down Waverley Road are given a proper homestyle Greek dining experience every time they visit. And, as popular as ever, it’s always best to book at George’s, whether you’re up for a casual meal or a full-on feasting function or celebration.

Further Information

Taking the reins at a landmark Greek restaurant in Melbourne such as George’s Greek Tavern is an intimidating prospect. Thankfully, new proprietors Nick and his father George (the second!) know the importance of keeping proudly familial Greek cuisine close to home. Nick brings to bear a wealth of experience gleaned from a long stint in fine European restaurants, and together the duo have sensitively renovated this famous Malvern East restaurant’s premises down Waverley Road in a Grecian palette of white and blue, complete with a ceiling fashioned from cathedral glass. When it comes to the food, the traditional charcoal fire pit-and-spit remains central to a menu, meaning plenty of the spiced lamb gyros and souvlaki for the real heads.

Fresh as a Mediterranean breeze, and with service as warm as those same winds, the menu at George’s Greek Tavern may have undergone a few alterations with the changing of the guard, but it remains at core representative of some of the most authentic Greek cuisine you’re liable to find in Melbourne – and that’s a big claim for a city renowned for its sizable Greek population. George’s Malvern East outpost is a true icon, and as popular as a venue for plate-breaking celebrations (there’s a dedicated function menu and room for 130 guests) as it is for a spur-of-the-moment indulgence in Greek and Mediterranean cuisine. Traditional dips with homemade bread to start are mandatory before a shared round of entrees such as prawn saganaki, bouyourdi, fetta melati and spanakopita, horta, and simple lima beans marinated in olive oil, onions, and parsley. At George’s, seafood main courses outnumber meat and poultry options, with our pick being the signature blue eye or rockling fillet with mushrooms, garlic, capsicum, and avocado in a creamy sauce. Seaside specialties aside, loyalists won’t be able to pass up the mouthwatering mixed meat platter: spit-grilled gyros, lamb cutlets, chicken souvlaki, bifteki and sausage… Our most emphatic recommendation is to book!

Fantastic service, nice food and good atmosphere. A bit hard to find if you have not been there before as the address is Waverly Rd but in fact that part of Waverly Road looks like the service lane of Dandenong Road. Some of our friends were lost. The chairs a bit hard but overall a good restaurant.

My family went there for a birthday party last Saturday. The food was great and tasty and the services was very good. We will be going back very soon. Thanks again.

Was amazing as usual. We had mixed dips with bread, saganaki, a mixed meat platter, a mixed seafood platter and a Greek salad. It was all very very yummy!

We have been to George's quite a few times and loved it however Friday night was not up to standard. Souvlaki served in take away bags, Gyros meat not tender (quite fatty) and meat platters were small for the price per head. Service was fabulous though.
