About Flame Greek Tavern

Nothing beats a home-style meal and for more than 28 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 saganaki and briny olives. Flame’s menu is prepared fresh daily and presents wide appeal, singing with recipes handed down through generations like spanakopita – spinach and cheese pie in filo pastry. From the charcoal grill come delicious plates of pork, lamb and chicken skewers, served with traditional Greek salad; or enjoy authentic eggplant moussaka, mince, béchamel sauce and vegetables. Don’t forget to finish sweetly with everyone’s favourite baklava and vanilla ice cream.

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!
