About Flame Greek Tavern

Nothing beats a home style meal and for more than 27 years Sophie Christou has been providing residents of Melbourne’s Surrey Hills just that at Flame Greek Tavern – traditional, authentic Greek fare. This unpretentious eatery is brought to life by an animated crowd of fiercely loyal locals sharing rustic plates of dolmades and briny olives. Flame’s menu is prepared fresh daily and presents with wide appeal, singing with recipes handed down through generations with dishes of spinach and cheese pie, marinated octopus, grilled saganaki and taramosalata dip with pita bread. From the charcoal grill come plates of roast pork, lamb and chicken skewers, served with traditional Greek salad; or perhaps sample a specialty like rice and mince cabbage rolls. Don’t forget to finish with creme caramel.

Excellent food


We have been getting take-away from Sophie since I was a baby! There's a reason why we keep going back: the food is amazing. The service is fantastic and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Especially the souvlaki!
