That’s exactly what you get at Parea Greek Tavern on Rocky Point Road in Kogarah. This popular Greek joint does everything the right way, from friendly service and communal tables up to their amazing small plates, sizzling grills, seafood and desserts. You’re guaranteed a fun night at Parea Greek Tavern – but you’re not guaranteed a spot unless you book, because they pack out most of the time!
Parea Greek Tavern is true to its name. The menu at this popular Sydney restaurant describes the Greek term parea as ‘a group of people who derive great pleasure by simply being together,’ and it is definitely all about social, casual, homely eating in good company. Handily located for Kogarah, Monterey and Ramsgate residents on Rocky Point Road, Parea Greek Tavern is one place you’re guaranteed a warm welcome, a hearty feed and plenty of good wine, beers and spirits to help the night along. You’ll want to book a table early, because Parea Greek Tavern is always humming – once you get a look at their menu you’ll see why.
If you’re heading to Rocky Point Road for a group meal, we recommend picking your way through Parea Greek Tavern’s delicious mezedes, ideal for sharing. It’s hard not just to fill up on the Greek dips with fresh pita bread (the pepper cheese kafteri is a particular favourite), but you should leave plenty of room for other awesome items like Cypriot sheftalies meatballs, spicy loukanika sausage, pickled octopus, zucchini fritters or some molten moussaka. Not to mention the mouthwatering meat (lamb off the bone and a choice of souvlaki), bright, healthy salads, and decadent desserts. The kids menu is more extensive than the norm in Sydney, too, so Parea is a great place for family dining in Kogarah.
Both the food and staff were fabulous. We had both the meat and seafood platter & cocktails. All were cooked and made to perfection. I highly recommend it.
Great night, amazing food, fantastic service. Will definitely be back
Amazing food, fantastic service, as always. That’s why we keep going back time and time again. The quality of the food and the service provided is truly exceptional.
