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 fresh sardines, whitebait, barbequed octopus and tzatziki dip with pita bread. Then move on to charcoal grilled souvlaki skewers of lamb, chicken and pork, complemented by traditional Greek salad; or perhaps moussaka with eggplant, potato, mince and béchamel sauce. Don’t forget to finish with sweet and sticky baklava.

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!
