Long-running and popular, Stavros Tavern is one of the fixtures of Albert Park, having been dishing up traditional Greek cuisine from this spot since 1967. This restaurant has a great atmosphere, with welcoming staff and a vibrant ambience. All the usual Greek favourites are on offer at this restaurant, like saganaki and moussaka, but it's worth trying the specials and the less familiar dishes.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
Stavros Tavern is named for owner and host Stavros Abougelis, who has been doing his thing here for more than 25 years. His thing is hospitality and he believes in providing a great atmosphere in a traditional way. There should be more places like this. The restaurant is comfortable and smart-casual rather than glamorous, which isn’t a bad thing, as glamour often means higher prices. The restaurant is light, with white walls and some engaging murals.

All the usual Greek favourites are here, like saganaki and moussaka, but it’s worth trying the specials and the less familiar dishes. Red peppers stuffed with rice and herbs, or a duck casserole, or anything with okra will be greatly appealing. So will the grilled sardines or quail. Desserts are less exciting, but try the rice pudding, or yoghurt with nuts and honey. The wine list is reasonably sized and priced, and includes some Greek wine, in case you’re feeling homesick for holiday wines. Weekends are full of music, noise and sometimes dancing and plate throwing; go mid-week for a quieter time. The $40 set menu is good value, and the fireplace is welcome on cold nights.
