Melbourne has the largest Greek community outside of Greece, and thus the standard for Greek restaurants is very high. Remvi By The Bay is a little out of the main Hellenic enclaves, but their location on Nelson Place in Williamstown – facing the Bay – could easily be in Athens or Crete. Their food is based on the iconic ingredients of Greek cuisine: olive oil, yoghurt, and honey alongside fish, cheese and meat.
Remvi By The Bay is a Greek restaurant that strives for authenticity: everything is as Greek as possible, from the obvious things like the menu and the wine, to the live bouzouki music on weekends and even the location, which looks straight out onto the ocean. Melbourne is a hugely competitive place to run a Greek restaurant, but Remvi By The Bay manages it with ease, drawing the crowds down to Nelson Place in Williamstown and sending them home happy.
Greek food is simple in essence and difficult in execution: great ingredients, traditional techniques and lots of love come together to create one of the healthiest and most-revered national cuisines in the world. At Remvi By The Bay on Nelson Place in Williamstown, on the edge of Melbourne, they have a superb Greek menu, and we would recommend indulging yourself and your friends in a banquet. These set menus offer 4 courses: starters like calamari, saganaki, fried feta, and loukaniko Greek sausage; followed by gyros and kebabs, a seafood platter and finally sweets.
Our party of 10 enjoyed the absolutely fabulous food, drinks, music, atmosphere and friendly staff. Meals were served in a timely manner. Overall Excellent experience
Great meal couldn’t fault quality or value of meal Staff attentive and on a quiet night ensured we didn’t feel rushed Nice atmosphere in place and definitely would return
Wonderful service, peaceful atmosphere and delicious food every time I have dined at the restaurant. The last booking I made was with a group of 6 people and everyone left very happy and enjoyed their meals. 10/10
Good food and service overall however, there's room for improvement. The lamb could have been of better quality. Too much grissle made it very chewy. It appeared to be more fried than grilled. Food for thought. Hope this feedback leads to improvement. Good luck!
I was really disappointed by the service. The food was delicious, as always, but we waited about 45 minutes for food, and then the entree and mains arrived together, so we mainly ate cold food. The restaurant was only half full so you were not too busy, just very disorganised.
Good service good food definitely will go back not too expensive bread was really good - freshly baked. Good selection of wines and the desserts were great too
Great location. Food and service were great, will go again. We ordered the set menu, plenty of food, everyone walked away very very satisfied. It was great.
last time we went there the food was more abundant. straight away the waiter presumed that we wanted the cheaper banquet as we intended to have the dearer one.
Wasn't the most pleasant experience with the waitress ignoring us the whole night. We had to remind them to bring out our food whereas the other tables who came later had theirs. Food too salty and dry and looked like they were pre cooked much earlier since they had two sessions for Valentine's Day.
