Mel was an absolute dream to work with for our daughter's baptism and 1st birthday. The food was delicious, the setup absolutely beautiful and our guests are still talking about how amazing the food was. Thank you Mel and Team - we will definitely be organising your friendly services at our next function.

We were lucky enough to have Mel and Stef cater our wedding for 90 people. They did an amazing job, people were coming up to us during the wedding telling us how great the food was and they are still telling us today! Food was such an important element of our day and they absolutely nailed it, not only was it delicious but the presentation and styling of the buffet was gorgeous with many guests taking insta worthy snaps before everyone dug in. Thank you so much Mel and Stef, I will be recommending you to as many friends as I can just so I can have the food again.

I was honored to have tasted The Grecian Kitchen’s glorious food at a wedding at Phillip Island. I had a wonderful chat with Soumela who was running the show and it was so wonderful to hear someone so passionate about the quality of her food and the care she has to make the people she is serving it to happy. Highly recommend on all levels - superb!!

Mel, Stef & Nina you were all amazing. From the minute you arrived, setting up and beginning preparations to the minute our guests arrived, everything was flawless.. the whole evening was that seamless that our guests had no idea where we were hiding you guys... the food was delicious, fresh, full of flavour and there was plenty of it too. Thank you for catering our event, treating our home as your own and helping us make the milestone birthday an event we’ll always remember . You guys are amazing thank you thank you

Massive thanks to Mel and Stef for everything they did to make make my 70th Birthday party so memorable. They provided us all with a beautiful Greek feast. The food was just wonderful and beautifully presented on the tables Mel set with lovely linen cloths and vases of flowers from my garden. All the guests I have spoken to since the party have remarked on the beautiful food and friendliness of Mel and Steff. Thank you both for everything you did
LUKE DRUMMOND
Thanks to Mel and Steph at the Grecian Kitchen! The perfect couple for the perfect spread at your perfect event!
From the cheese platter to the buffet style meal they produced at our cocktail wedding was nothing short of spectacular!
The rave reviews we received throughout the night from our more than impressed guests was amazing.
Thanks for the massive effort from you and your staff, we would recommend and re hire for future events in a heart beat!
Much love from Luke and Emily

Thank you for supplying our perfect wedding day feast!! Sharing a beautiful meal with our family and close friends was a must for our wedding day and we were blown away with the catering The Grecian Kitchen cooked from the heart.
Mel is passionate about all things food...the taste, visual appeal, cohesion of flavours and most importantly bringing people together with food cooked form the heart.
The personal and thoughtful service received by Mel was by far the best experience of all our vendors, we could not have asked for more.
Our wedding will be remembered by our guests as the one with the great food, thank you xx

RAVEN WILLMOTT
Mel, Stef and the team put in a mammoth effort to make the food at our wedding unbelievable! They were efficient and organised and took the stress of catering a DIY-wedding out of the equation. Communication was great and they were always happy to chat and tweak things as needed! Thanks Guys!
DARBY LYN
We hired Grecian Kitchen for our wedding of 80+ people. The food was delicious, presentation was perfect, and communicating and planning with Mel was a breeze. Highly recommend for wedding at home! Guests loved the food and all food allergies were catered for. Thank you!!!!

A huge thank you and well done to Mel and Steph for making Max’s 18th so perfect! Mel is a delight to work with as you plan your perfect party! They are meticulous and creative and our guests were delighted with the fantastic food. So lucky to get them. Hope you’re free when Luke turns 18 in 4 years time!
ALLYSON JEAN
These wonderful people catered for my daughters wedding. They went way beyond catering , I saw them doing little things behind the scene that just topped off the fantastic amazing food. I absolutely recommend The Grecian Kitchen
100%. Thankyou
ERICA LUCI
A huge thank you to Mel and Stef for the amazing buffet they put on for my 30th birthday celebrations. Their professionalism, organisation and customer service were second to none. The food was simply mouthwatering!! Thank you for making my special day so memorable.
GABRIELLE FERNS
We had our wedding catered by Mel and her team at Grecian Kitchen over the weekend - and I honestly cannot put into words HOW GOOD THE FOOD WAS!!!!! Seriously our expectations were absolutely blown out of the water. Everything was literally perfect. We are still eating the leftovers a week later, everyone at the wedding was able to go back for seconds and some even for thirds!
We had a few guests with dietary requirements and this was absolutely no problem - from vegan to coeliac these guests were so happy with what they had to choose from.
Mel was amazing and so easy to deal with, she helped us create the perfect menu and I seriously just can't say enough good things.
THANK YOU GRECIAN KITCHEN!!!!

PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALLERS ASSOCIATION AUSTRALIA 

Thank you so much for the fantastic lunch and incredible service for our Football History Conference earlier this week. We were excited to bring back memories of feasts in the football club houses across the country each weekend after games. All our attendees were extremely impressed and could not have spoken highly enough about the catering on the day. On behalf of the PFA, thank you!

 

ERIN CLOUT 

Catered for a work conference and did exceptionally well to keep all attendees fed and humming along all day. Personally appreciated the variety of vegan options! Would definitely recommend!

 

GREG HONDROMATIDIS 

Hi Mel….

Just wanted to say thanks again to both you and Stef, catering for our grandsons christening party…..……food was amazing as always… Many positive comments from lots of guests…Kind regards……………….Greg.

 

SANDY YOUNG 

Mel! Just want to say a massive THANK YOU to you guys for feeding all our guests at our wedding! Everybody was raving on about "how good the food was" & "how much" there was! The food was so delicious, my faves the lamb ofcourse & dolmades (best I've ever had!) haha You guys looked after Haim & I incredibly well & we seriously cannot wait to have another party so you guys can feature again! Lots of love Sandy & Haim

 

JESS HILL 

Dearest Mel,

A little overdue (the last few weeks have been a bit of a blur!), but I wanted to take a moment to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. I honestly don't think I can express my love and gratitude for what you did to make our wedding day so amazing. To come in at such a late stage and not only completely put my mind at ease, but make me unbelievably excited about what turned out to be the perfect wedding feast. The kind and generous approach in how you go about business is an absolute pleasure which was felt and truly appreciated by Ollie, myself as well as our parents too. 

I lost track of the number of people who raved about the food on the day and then I'm pleased to say we were able to enjoy it all over again as a left over feast on the Saturday!
Thank you so much Mel, from Ollie and myself to you and all of your team. 
I sincerely hope we get to eat your food again one day soon!
Love and hugs,
Jess & Ollie xx

 

ATHENA TRAPALIS 

This is a long overdue review of the fabulous Grecian Kitchen. We were lucky enough to have Mel and Stef cater for our special day back in February. We can’t thank them enough for taking control of all things food and for making it not only look gorgeous but the food was mouth wateringly good!

We had such a great day celebrating with our closest Aussie family and friends and it would not have been half as successful had it not been for Greek feast The Grecian Kitchen prepared. Thank you! Our guests all raved about how delicious the food was!

The food: chicken and lamb on the spit – not only did it taste amazing but the smell was incredible! The salads, the salt and pepper squid, the dips and the bread, the fresh fruit and baklava! All of it was so authentically Greek and spot on terms of what we wanted for our day. Had my yiayia been around she would have given this her A1 review, which meant she thought it was perfect! So that is what we wanted to say to Mel and Stef, thank you for helping us make our day perfect and for the problem solving at the beginning when we didn't know if it would rain or shine! 
Love Athena & Lou

 

AMY MALONE 

Mel and her team were absolute stars from initial enquiry through to our event.
Catering for 160 people for St Ali/Sensory Lab Coffee Roasters staff event and all went perfectly! 
Absolutely delicious food, incredible food and table set up. Their team were so helpful and flexible working out a menu and set up that would suit our guests (we’re hospo ppl so v picky about our food!) and venue space. 
So many compliments on the food and requests for the details for future events. Can’t recommend highly enough!

 

ANDREA KLEIJN 

To Mel, Stef and to your fabulous team, we were completely blown away!! You absolutely nailed it, from the food, to the styling and every little detail. You were professional, easy to work with and no task was too hard. We really can’t thank you enough for helping make our day just perfect.

 

MICHAEL PHIILIP 

Thankyou Mel and all the Grecian Kitchen crew, you made our wedding memorable with the most amazing food. We are all still talking about it days later. So fresh and delicious and the presentation spectacular. I'm sure it won't be too long before we need you guys again. From Mick n Mon.

 

ANGELA O'MAHONEY 

I was a guest at a recent Wedding that The Grecian Kitchen catered. There was over 100 people there. I just had to write a review as there was only compliments about the food.The presentation looked amazing and the food tasted so delicious. They managed everything with a smile. Would highly recommend.

PAMELA SPIROPOULOS 

Thankyou so much for an amazing spread of beautiful food and catering for our Christmas function today at Euro Precast. The whole team absolutely loved your food. You guys delivered exceptional food in a professional manner. Book us in for next year. � Thankyou!!

 

CRYSTAL ED 

U guys rock! Thank you Mel, Stefanos and Nina. U simply made my life so easy from the minute I called you. The food not only looked amazing in its presentation but it tasted so so good. I was a little concerned there would not be enough (common I guess for any host) but I trusted in u guys and we have so much food left over, I could have had another event! You left my kitchen sparkling and left very little for me but enjoy the company of our guests. Can’t thank you enough, would book you and recommend The Grecian Kitchen in a heart beat! 

 

CHOA J THOMAS 

AMAZING!! They catered for our surprise wedding and everyone was loving life!! And trust me there was enough food and more!!! Love love love you guys!!!! It was perfect!!!! �

 

SEFANIE BIANCO 

Thank you to an amazing hardworking couple :)

I recently had my 30th and I couldnt be happier with the service provided by The Grecian Kitchen!! Not only warm people but their food was divine. Plenty of food (finger licking good), and presentation was spot on! I highly recommend their catering and would definitely consider calling them for my next party, they were worth every cent!! 

MEL not only cooked but helped me so much around the guests and with everything on the day!! 

 

KATE PASSMORE 

Mel goes above and beyond to cater to all your needs and is so friendly and helpful I could not recommend her more!

TRAVIS DAVIDSON 

Lucy and I had the most amazing wedding day, partly due to the most amazing food served by Mel and Stef from The Grecian Kitchen.

Before the big day we were given lots of choice and variation provided by Mel and we worked with her to come to a plan for the food on the day. Lucy and I wanted our wedding to be less formal, more of a party atmosphere. Obviously the idea of having a 'buffet' can have negative connotations but when we described to our friends where were having a 'Greek Feast' everyone was very excited at the prospect.

We had so many guests that expressed how beautiful Lucy was and quickly followed this up with 'and the food was awesome!'

We are so pleased how everything worked out and could not recommend Mel and Stef highly enough. Thanks again!

KAREN TSONIDIS 

Today we had the pleasure of experiencing 'The Grecian Kitchen' catering our sons wedding day.

They were incredible to deal with from day one. The service was personable, efficient and very professional. They catered to all our guest dietary needs without hesitation and prepared an amazing menu for a very reasonable price. All correspondence was prompt, caring and friendly.

Today they arrived on time and could not have been more accomodating. They independently worked with no assistance from us and offered to do whatever they could to help us. In fact they felt more like family then caterers.

Now about the food - it was absolutely sensational. The guest could not stop raving about how great everything tasted. The variety of dishes was unbelievable and the quantity more than we could consume. The presentation was amazing.

I will be using The Grecian Kitchen for all my future events.

Thank you to Mel and the team and The Grecian Kitchen for contributing to an unforgettable day 

KATHERINE 

Where do I begin?

My fiance and I first tasted the delights of The Grecian Kitchen at a family event, and just had to book them for our engagement party.

Mel was fantastic to deal with, with such prompt and informative replies!

All of our guests (>100) complimented the food and service and both yourself and Stef made our night so special.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and will definitely recommend you in future xx

ELIZABETH & DOMINIQUE 

"The Kitchen Tea was great, thanks so much, everyone loved the food. It made the event complete, Best wishes and i will keep you in mind for any future events that the family will have. I have already recommended you and will continue to do so xx."

 

AL MILLS 

Food was fantastic! We had finger food for our cocktail wedding. Mel's communication was consistently fast and effective from our very first conversation. She was flexible with modifying the menu to suit our tastes. Mel and her staff were fantastic on the night, they served everything with a smile and friendly demeanour and cleaned up after themselves. The lamb cutlets and calamari were my personal faves but everything was delicious! We would definitely use them again and recommend them to our friends!

 

ELENI CROSS 

Fantastic food and excellent service delivered by people who care about your event. We had a great time at our daughter's Christening, and much of the thanks goes to the Grecian Kitchen. We will use them again.

 

KOULA INGRAM 

AMAZING!! They catered for our surprise wedding and everyone was loving life!! And trust me there was enough food and more!!! Love love love you guys!!!! It was perfect!!!! �

MIKE MERCURI 

Hey Mel and Stefanos, big shout out to say thanks for your efforts on the weekend. It was a great spread with fantastic feedback from our family, friends and clients about the quality (and quantity!) of the food. I cant recommend you and Stef highly enough. Cheers Mike

GREG HONDROMATIDIS 

Greg Hondromatidis for leaving a Review on our Visitor Post.

"We have had many large birthday milestone parties at our home and have used different caterers for each occasion - for my 60th party and approximately 100 guests, we decided to go with "The Grecian Kitchen". Mel, Stef and their staff came in, setup, and cooked the most amazing dishes we have experienced - without any fuss. From the Chicken souvlaki, prawns skewers and Calamari (where one 70 year old said that is the best Calamari he has had in his life!),..to the lamb cutlets which were AMAZING....All the food was extremely well presented, fresh and DELICIOUS.....All my guests were extremely impressed with Mel & Stef's professionalism and meticulous planning for my birthday occasion. The Grecian Kitchen catering is highly recommended and we will definitely engage Mel & Stef with our future functions".

 

MISH MISTREVSKI 

Dear Mel and Stef, I can't thank you enough! You did such an amazing job at my 40th. The food was delicious and servings perfect. You were so amazing we have booked you again for a Christmas party in 4 weeks. There is always so much to organise when you have a party at home but from our first phone conversation I knew I could relax about the food and leave it in your capable hands. Many thanks, Mish x

 

KELLY BOOTH 

my sincerest thanks for the amazing job you and the team did for our wedding on the weekend. It was the most amazing food! Everyone left full and saying it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. It brings tears to my eyes thinking about how beautiful that spread looked on the day. It's been a pleasure working with you and I look forward to watching your business grow and starting a great friendship.

SOPHIA FIRST

Mel and Stef catered my wedding last Sat. There was barely a crumb left....everyone loved it- raved about it. I was so impressed with their effort and work ethic. They went the extra mile for me, did exactly what they said they would do and ensured we had just a fantastic night. Could not more highly recommend this family run business to anyone needing some catering.
