Established in 1996, this Greek eatery is situated at Riverside Quay on the beautiful Southbank strip. Othello's kitchen serves Greek and Cypriot cuisine and is a real favourite for meals when you feel like letting your hair down. The public returns again and again for the mixed dips, crispy calamari and protein from the Cypriot grill. Drop in on the weekend for live Greek music and dancing.

With the highest Greek population outside of Greece, or so I’m told, it’s no wonder Greek favourites like Othello aspire to and effortlessly manage to recreate traditional Geek fare in the heart of our beautiful city. With a prime Southbank position, Othello specialises in modern and traditional Greek and Cypriot cuisine. Their set banquet menu is a favourite with first-timers, giving diners the choice to sample much of the tempting fare on offer. Ambience is further enhanced with live Greek music and belly dancing.

Start with an entree of octopodixidato: pickled or seasonal chargrilled octopus on a bed of mixed greens. Follow with a main such as the recommended kleftiko: a traditional dish of spring lamb cooked slowly in its own juices and served with sputna potatoes. Finish with the galatopaureko: Greek-style filo and custard slice. Alternatively, choose the banquet set menu for two or more (make sure you have an appetite), which includes dolmades and saganaki for entree, calamari, chargrilled prawns, or a meat platter of lamb and chicken souvlaki for main, and a selection of Greek sweets and coffee to finish. Othello offers a good selection of imported beer, wine and ouzo to make your meal complete.

Othello - User Reviews

Tiina Vallis:

We dined at the Othello 12/11/2011, and were rather disappointed. We ordered "the Meze", Greek banquet. It was $45.00 per person and rather poor. We received first a plate of antipasto with a small variety and it was not enough for 4 people and we also had to ask for more bread. We had to wait for an hour for the next serve and it was brought to us after asking for it. The second serve included a plate of fish and a plate of meats of which neither was typically Greek. The fish was cooked by an amateur and the meat skewers were cold. To sum our experience up, we had a very poor two course meal. Melbourne has much more superior Greek restaurants where you pay less and enjoy actual Greek food!review  13/11/2011
