Excellent food and service. Highly recommend this restaurant
We very much enjoyed our second visit to The Greek. A modern presentation of some classic foods well presented and nice selection of local and Greek wines. Will be back for sure.
Food great but need to turn lights down too bright needs to be a bit moody for a date
Very enjoyable experience. Staff are politely friendly, food was taken to a higher realm than some places offer. Was a little cool inside - (tho that would bode well for warm weather) and sadly we were seated near a noisy child...but I will happily return here. There were so many great dishes to try!
Thoroughly enjoyed the food. The menu had several fantastic dishes that will bring us back to this restaurant. We had a three course meal that was enjoyed by all of our party. Never eaten here before now... best kept secret in Geelong. You will not be disappointed. I don't know the owners nor have any vested interest here, seriously great food that we enjoyed, hence the fantastic review. Well done team, we'll see you again very soon!!
We introduced a group of our Melbourne friends to the delights of one of our favourite Geelong restaurants and they weren't disappointed. The 'banquet' was superb, as was the lunch specials. A great place to eat.
Absolutely fabulous food. Ambiance was terrific.
The pork belly was too salty & so was the chicken meat in the souvlaki, the other meals were fine.
The staff were friendly & efficient, nice atmosphere.
Very relaxing lunch. Could not complain about anything except too much beautiful food.
We enjoyed our dinner for two. Service was efficient & attentive.
Food was very good, tasty & to our knowledge authentic Greek.
Wouldn’t hesitate to eat their again as there were many choices on the menu we would like to try!
The octupus was a spectacular signature-worthy dish! Wow!. Unfortunately the potatoes were undercooked, no seasoning and no flavour. The "pumpkin salad" comprised of tons of rocket interspersed with the tiniest little cubes of very cold and tasteless pumpkin and crumbed fetta, no discernable dressing, nice fleshy olives. We had to ask twice for salt and pepper and noticed other tables doing the same. The calamari was okay, again more rocket than anything else. Staff were friendly.
As always the food and service was AMAZING! Our favourite dish was no longer on the menu (please bring back the grilled octopus and watermelon salad!) but we tried a few new things and adored the chicken and clay-baked lamb!
We love The Greek our favourite restaurant in Geelong. Authentic Greek food the real deal here and quality. What a beautiful building it is in and setting. Attentive customer service never have to wait long for drinks and any questions. Just love it.
Wonderful meal, comfortable, pleasant surroundings with great service.
Meal was delicious, difficult to choose from the menu.
A lovely way to share a meal on a Saturday evening.
Look forward to returning, recommend .
We arrived post lockdown fortunately but certain restrictions were placed which caused some consternation re identification. Offers to assist from the staff were hesitant but eventually helpful. This could have been done earlier with some more consideration but we eventually jumped that hurdle.
The restaurant was quiet which suited us and we ordered our food and drinks. Sadly we might have ordered one particular dish but it takes 45 minutes to cook and we were not advised of this early enough to order so that we could all eat together. Again we moved on and were all complimentary of our meals which we enjoyed thoroughly.
I think if the service staff were more on the ball with these issues then the dining experience would be first class.
We loved your venue, beautiful cosy place to enjoy a quiet meal
We did feel that our mains were rushed with us only just having finished our entree before our mains were served very quickly
Other than that everything else were absolutely perfect and we thank you for a lovely night
Amazing service and a really lovely welcoming feel. Food was delicious.
We did the Banquet, such a beautiful selection. Would definitely recommend
A memorable Mother's Day Lunch. Excellent food, great selection of local and Greek wines. Although at the beginning we got off to an unhappy start concerning the strict 2 hour lunch meal time. All was more than surpassed by the excellent food and service by a happy team of waitresses.
Great ambience. Service is wonderful. Loved the fish I had. My partner did not like the
chicken dish. They took it off the bill and she ordered another dish, eggplant which she loved. The mojitos are really good. Food prices comparable to surrounding restaurants. Would definitely go again.
Service was good, food a little bland. Cocktails delicious.
friendly environment, obliging staff, enjoyable food/wine
After dining recently for our wedding anniversary, we returned to The Greek with some visitors from Regional Victoria. Experienced great food, friendly and attentive staff in a great atmosphere. Highly recommend The Greek.
Great food & service. Amazing detail to presentatio
Great to have a really good Greek Restaurant in Geelong. Very pleasant experience. We’ll be back.
Our first visit. A very enjoyable experience and tasty meal.
The food was good, but not outstanding, and the baclava was unfortunately not good, very soggy and didn’t taste fresh. So for $14, I’d been expecting the best baclava I’ve ever had, and it was the opposite for me. It’s in a really nice location, but just feels expensive for what it is.
Beautiful setting in the old customs building but seating arrangements seemed a bit odd. The food was delicious, a little too much for two (the clay baked lamb) and couldn’t have on its own - way too much meat. Great to share with a group of 4 with salad and potatoes, this then would be a great value meal. Wine list was average and pretty expensive more than 100% mark up on shelf prices. The service was good and welcoming.
The staff at The Greek @ Customs House were lovely. Very helpful and friendly. The food was delicious, especially the slow cooked lamb.
Lovely spacious setting and great service.........
Great meal great service 5 people got the special order so only feedback would be there should of been 2 lambs! Otherwise great.
The food was amazing and the service was attentive and friendly. Have been recommending this restaurant to friends. Will definitely be going back.
Enjoyed the banquet style menu, all the courses, but thought that one scoop of ice cream divided by 4 people for dessert was a little mean, especially as we paid ten percent surcharge on the day.
Awesome, great service, food was delicious, highly recommend The Greek.
The lamb cooked in the clay was absolutely delicious. Definitely recommend.
Delicious food and thoughtful service. A great place to catch up with a friend.
Lovely food, really good service by friendly staff. Nice surroundings and generally quite atmosphere regrettably punctuated by a noisy table with no regard for other diners. Apart from that, a really good experience and we shall return. Our table of four was most impressed! Well done!
Great food and great taste(s). Lamb chops, pork belly & roast potatoes. Table service, particularly drinks, was very slow meaning the venue missed the opportunity to sell us extra drinks which is a loss for them.
We enjoyed our choice of food and drink, the venue is relaxing and peaceful. Courteous staff. Side salads are large for two or more people unless one person would like to eat a lot of salad. Would recommend. We will go back.
Amazing food, service, great wine selection and price was spot on.
Will be back
