Alpha_Salmon with cutlery_Best restaurant Sydney


Alpha is a greek restaurant located on Castlereagh street, in the centre of the city.

What I really like about it is the very good value for money. When I had dinner there, everything was great, from the very attentive service, to the pleasing atmosphere (you get some space between the tables, candles on the table, a nice heated terrace…). The food  was good and varied ; I thought the price was very reasonable.

If you don’t know much about greek cuisine, this is definitely a place to go, as you will find all the famous greek specialties such as Moussaka, Tzatziki, Pita, Falafel, Haloumi, etc. and many other strange greek words I am not even sure about : Melitzanosalata, Tirokafteri, Spanakopita…
