A delicious aroma greets you as you sit down to eat at this restaurant – a heady mix of lemon and oregano, grilling meat and seafood – that gets the gastric juices pumping before you’ve even perused the menu. And then an almost overwhelming array of choices greet you with fresh starters such as house-made dolmades, grilled king prawns, calamari or saganaki. Huge, satisfying main courses specialise in meats and seafood while mouth-watering traditional Greek desserts encourage you to indulge. Opt for the banquet and let the chefs do the hard work, or choose from specials such as suckling pig, kid goat, calamari stew with spinach and silverbeet or whole snapper.

It’s not all about the meat – vegetarians have plenty of choices including baby vegetables stuffed with fetta, ricotta and pine nuts or baked eggplant with tomatoes, onions and herbs. There’s a big open kitchen so you can enjoy dinner and show as you watch the chefs at work as you work up an appetite. Desserts are typically very sweet and best accompanied by a strong cup of Greek coffee. Choose galactoboureko walnut cake, baklava or loukoumades; doughy puffs dripping with honey and pistachio nuts. If you have the room, a mixed dessert platter means you don’t have to miss out on any of them.

Alpha Ouzeri - User Reviews


My first time at Alpha Ouzeri and I cannot fault it, my family and I had the Colossus set menu for $55 per head it was great value for the food we received. The seafood was amazing and the lamb and chicken was great, we got so many entrees we could not finish our meal, my favourite entrees was the feta cheese dipped in sesame seeds and lightly fried. We will be back very soonreview  25/02/2014

We had the best time at Alpha Ouzeri, the food is so delicious. The seven of us had the $39 menu. The entrees were fantastic and gave you an amazing variety of the taste of Greece and mains were the most wonderful lamb (lemon lamb just melts in your mouth)and souvlaki and lamb cutlets. Then yummy seafood then the best mixed dessert plate heaven. The place was packed but the service was excellent. Go and discover the rest for yourself you cannot describe it all.YUM!review  26/03/2012

Really poor service - hardly anyone there on a Tuesday night - we got there at 7.30pm and it took almost an hour for food to come out. Manager ignored our situation and had to be approached. Food when they finally brought it out was OK but to be frank, the attitude of the manager and therefore the service in the restaurant, was  27/10/2011

Exceptional night had at Alpha Ouzeri. The $39 set menu for 2 people was incredible value, not only for quantity (could have easily fed three starving students) but quality as well. I kept looking to see where all of the wait staff were but it was simply a few amazing individuals that gave us great services, despite the place being quite full. I will absolutely be back there when I am next in  22/06/2011

Alpha Ouzeri has by far the best greek food in Victoria!! The food is delicious!! The crew/staff are amazing, funny and friendly!! The boss is an amazing cook!! There's a function area up stairs for any kind of celebration that can fit up to 139 people!! And as you are eating your wonderful food; they play wonderful greek music in the background!! My whole family rates Alpha Ouzeri 5 stars!! Some nights the greek band is there and the play magnificent greek music. If you are lucky Spiros Kourtis (one of the workers) will get on stage and sing a wonderful, great song with his amazing voice!!review  29/01/2011

My first experience of Alpha Ouzeri was far from average, it was a delightful dining experience. My husband and I were greeted by a warm and friendly waiter, whom gave us his absolute attention, discussed the wine list in detail and shared the day's specials with us. We ordered starters, which were delicious. However, it was our main meal that was the focal point of our dining experience. We ordered a shared main, 'The mixed grill for two'. Reasonably priced, containing a variety of meats, including lemon lamb, pancetta, cutlets, chicken souvlaki and Greek salad, with mouth watering marinated fetta. A fabulous dining experience, great wine, friendly and attentive wait staff. 5 stars from my husband and  02/07/2010
