Serving up tasty Greek cuisine to the people of Melbourne for over thirty years now, Salona restaurant has become a fixture in the area, known for its quality Mediterranean dishes, friendly hospitality and stylish environment. For a Greek feast that you want forget, book a table and head on over to Salona Restaurant, you’ll find it on Swan Street, close to both Swan Street/Church Street and East Richmond train stations.
Established all the way back in 1972, Salona Restaurant serves up traditional Greek dishes as well as modern Hellenic cuisine and cocktails from its stylish location nestled in the heart of Melbourne’s Richmond on Swan Street. Begin with some share plates like the grilled saganaki with poached apricot, slow-roasted lamb ribs, and seed-crusted cheese and herb croquettes. Then, move on to some gourmet souvlaki, we recommend the turkey gyros served with salona slaw and beetroot tzatziki, or a hearty main course dish like the lamb riganato (slow roasted lamb shoulder in wine and oregano served alongside a baked potato).
The cocktail menu at Melbourne’s Salona Restaurant is equally as mouth-watering, sink back an ouzo basil sour (cardamon-infused ouzo with basil syrup and fresh lemon juice) or the Melbournista (tsipouro, campari, tomato syrup, fresh lemon and rosemary). Drawing in diners with its great Hellenic food and cocktails every day of the week, booking a table at Richmond’s Salona Restaurant in advance is advised.
A quaint, restaurant with DELICIOUS food, beautiful atmosphere and fabulous service. The food was authentic, warm and substantial, fab for small or large groups to share. The waiter made an effort to engage in conversation to make us feel welcome, it was also nice to receive a complimentary orange cake before departing! Such a wonderful evening will be back!
I visited my colleagues. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the authentic Greek dishes, Greek wine and beer. The staff were very friendly and attentive:)
