Meet The Greek is one of the most respected Greek eateries in Sydney – acclaim that is not dished out lightly. It’s a safe assertion here, though, at this buzzing old-school restaurant in Brighton-le-Sands’ old ‘Little Greece’ huddle of restaurants on The Grand Parade. Meet The Greek has a vibrant atmosphere and great selection of drinks, and it’s a great sociable setting for getting together with friends or on special occasions, a place you can share a few drinks and delicious nibbles or sit down to a memorable meal. Meet The Greek delivers over and over again on any expectations when it comes to properly authentic Greek food.
Found in one of Sydney’s historic Greek neighbourhoods, this stylish venue on Brighton-le-Sands’ Grand Parade is stripped-back and has a quirky village feel, which fits well with the homely but refined meals on offer. This could easily be nana's cooking, from bubbling pots of moussaka to slow-roasted lamb shoulder. But you’d have to have a fancy granny to get it served up this beautifully, and an incredibly talented one for her to be able to whip up as many amazing plates as Meet The Greek’s team of chefs. An authentic charcoal grill and rotisserie are used frequently and seafood features prominently, but if you really can’t choose just go for a mix of meze plates or their special shared platters.
There were six of us for mid-week lunch, all agreed there was a good selection of mezethes and mains, enjoyed the meal and all six walked away full & satisfied, highly recommended, we will be back.
Great food, great service awesome atmosphere!! Ordered a banquet for five adults and had lots of food left over. Table service was on going. Definitely will go again!
Food was delicious and so fresh. The banquet was great value. The service was good. A little crowded and noisy to talk. Good place to eat
Wonderful as always! Fresh food, wonderful service made for a great night X
the food was absolutely delicious and very generous servings. we ordered a variety of the mezes dishes, 2 salads, a couple of deserts, wine and beer and coffee and it came to $60 pp which is amazing value! the only small negative was the noise level, but the restaurant was totally full on a saturday night, and there was also music in the background, and we felt that it was a great atmosphere. would definitely go back!
My friend who was meeting me at the restaurant was very late (time mixup). The staff were very accepting of this and offered to get me a drink in the interim. They were very friendly and the food was delicious. Portion sizes of our selection of haloumi, spinach and feta pie, calamari and roast vegetables were very generous. When presented with the bill, I was pleasantly surprised - less than $80 which included 3 glasses of wine and a soft drink. Excellent value.
We made a booking for 22 people and the banquet menu (our group from around Australia). The food was fantastic, the atmosphere was alive and vibrant, great location and top shelf service. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will return without hesitation. Its clearly popular, so would recommend booking ahead rather than walk up. Well done to the team out front and in the kitchen, looking forward to a return.
first time at this restaurant. Great Atmosphere and despite being full service was very quick and staff attentive and friendly. Definitely will be back as will our friends who we went with. Good really good and serving size very generous. The slow cooked lamb for one we shared between 4 of us and the beetroot said was just Devine.
The food at Meet the Greek is absolutely fantastic. Our group of six shared some meze plates and everything was delicious! A great atmosphere too. My new favourite restaurant!
It was lovely, food was delicious, apart from the lady at the desk with glasses, she never as much as once smiled. Very serious bringing you to your table and handing out menus all evening, and a very pretty girl at that, would be nice if she smiled. But can't complain food was delicious
Always a great experience at Meet the Greek. Food was amazing and service was excellent. The live band is always a good addition to a great night.
We went to Meet the Greek for Sunday lunch and it was excellent. Great atmosphere, attentive staff and wonderful food. Everything we ordered was served very quickly.
I really enjoyed my experience here at Meet the Greek. Great atmosphere and food. The staff were friendly and professional. I would definitely come back.
Service was excellent, the food was delicious, atmosphere was pure Greek- the band was playing. Was recommended by a local who is from a Greek background. Totally understand the recommendation, the family and myself will be going back there for our little of Greece.
I would recommend Meet the Greek restaurant to friends and family. The food was fresh and full of flavour, friendly staff and good family based atmosphere.
The atmosphere and the food well done ✅ table service very efficient and their Greek cocktails to die for. We had calamari, Beautiful feta marinaded in a jar with gorgeous toast and for mains The steak Bizora was to die for.
A great location looking over Botany Bay. Parking near by hard to find but at least no parking meters. The menu a little restrictive at lunch. The staff try very hard to make you comfortable which makes up for food that was a little disappointing, vine leafs tough and octopus very rubbery, shish kebab chicken and lamb over cooked.
It was such a great experience that I have not stopped talking about it. The atmosphere and the staff were fantastic. The food was even better than we expected. Great Local Place that we would defiantly go to again.
Lovely and attentive staff, pity we couldn't order the classic dish of moussaka as they said it would take too long in comparison to our other dishes ordered for 7 people. Disappointing Greek salad. Overall though, perhaps it was our choices that were amiss 😅
12 of us enjoyed a fun and fabulous evening together. Food, service and venue excellent, a must if you want value for money great food and excellent service. We will be back xxxooo for all the staff
