Further Information

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.

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

Food was fantastic, good atmosphere. Wait staff were friendly and receptive, they could tell when to bring out the next course without lengthy waits or being rushed. Octopus was the best I have had in Sydney.

Fantastic, fast service, beautiful food quick and convenient. The BBQ octopus was delicious as well the fillo fetta for entrees. We ordered a couple of sharing platters and were not disappointed.

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.

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 😅

Great food but staff could have been a bit happier. I suppose this adds to the authenticity though as when I've visited Greece the customer service anywhere is never particularly good. Music was a little loud. 4th visit and have always enjoyed the experience.

Great food and service. Will definitely go again. The only let down for us was from an ambience point of view, the table outside was right next to the main road and was very noisy. Other than that, everything was fantastic.

They were a bit disorganised finding us a table after we had booked but the food was good . We decided to share a starter and the main meal arrived about 1 minute after the starter.

Best Greek food in Sydney! Most authentic Greek dishes and sooooo Delish! Service was great. Only thing that could've been better is if I was actually in Greece!

If going with a few people I would recommend lots of entrees and share platters over the main meals! The feta and honey parcels are to die for!

The food was excellent, and so was the service. Only one complaint, the mains were brought out shortly after the meze. We felt rushed, like they wanted us to finish quickly and leave.

Great location opposite the bay on a busy cafe strip but cosy inside. Service was efficient and pleasant. We shared holoumi and fried zucchini for starters and then the vegetarian moussaka, chicken skewers, lamb, and salad. Large portions, nice greek wine.
