Recently, George and his father Nick took over the management of the iconic, Melbourne Greek Restaurant – George’s Greek Tavern. This is a big and sentimental move for Nick who is cherishing working amongst family doing what he loves and excels at. Nicks restaurant career started in Europe and his talent has seen him very quickly hired to work in many of Europe’s finest restaurants. There, he picked up masterful cooking techniques working amongst some of Europes best masterchefs.
Whilst the concept and cuisine at the restaurant still remain very much traditional Greek, you will notice many major improvements that the new management have undertaken. The interior at George’s Greek Tavern is totally revamped. Modern, but still very much Greek in character – neutral colours with splashes of blue; cathedral glass ceilings; fresh dips, fish and salads on display and that characteristic, char-grill lamb on the charcoal spit…
The warmth, the personable approach to hosting, and the true intent of giving every patron a truly Greek dining experience is more akin to visiting a Greek family at home where the cooking skills are masterful. This is what you must do when you decide to book George’s Greek Tavern in Malvern. Leave behind all your past restaurant dining experiences. Be prepared to be hosted in a home, family-like environment but, with the essential professionalism omni-present.
