Long Greek Luncheon over Summer Holiday
Greeks are known for their inviting hospitality and love of good food, it is no wonder Greek cuisine is becoming a very popular dining option over the Summer holiday in Sydney.

A great taste adventure of the Mediterranean!


December is a busy month with all the end-of-the-year parties, Christmas drinks and catch-ups. Everyone want a delicious healthy, light feast without adding too much to the already bulging waistline! So my friend recommended Aegean Blu because it is located right next to Darling Harbour and they offer authentic flavorsome Greek food.

The Greek Mediterranean Retreat


The restaurant's decor clearly designed to allude diners to a Mediterranean setting, with the white-washed walls and the aroma of traditional Greek cuisine, one may well think they are in Mykonos rather than Pyrmont at Sydney Darling Harbour.

A long lunch is expected here


The menu spoiled us with many choices. We decided to narrow down to five dishes to share, giving us the opportunity to try a variety of the Greek specialities on offer here.

Pita Bread $2


We started with some warm toasty pita bread but we were enticed by so many entree dishes, so we ended up with a full table of appetizers to share.

Haloumi $15.00


The first appetizer was the grilled haloum drizzled with refreshing lemon juice. The Cyprus cheese may not looked much but they tasted so lovely and it was a pleasant vegetarian dish.

Octopus $16.00


The slow cooked octopus was marinated in vinaigrette and served on a bed of rocket salad. The octopus pieces were rather tender and the flavours were light and refreshing. We loved the lemon tanginess the lemon juice brought to the dish.

Zucchini Flowers $14.00 (3 flowers stuffed with four different kinds of Greek cheeses)


The fresh zucchini flowers were filled in with four different kinds of Greek cheeses and it was one of my favorite dishes. The saltiness of the cheese filling was very addictive and beckoned us to go for more.

Spanakopita $12.00


How could one say no to a good homemade spinach pie with crisp filo pastry filled with spinach and fetta cheese? The pastry was flaky and the savory filling was simple and delicious.

These are entrees....


You would think after these tasty appetizers, our greedy stomachs would subside down. However, we were again tempted by too many options from the mains list.

I was incapable of resisting a good traditional Moussaka.

Moussaka $18


The cheesey lamb mince bake was heavenly with layers of potatoes, eggplant and home made bechamel sauce. The serving size was quite substantial. However, I did find this particular moussaka was too creamy and rich for my liking after a few spoonfuls.

Chicken Souvlaki $22.00


Last but not least, we got a Chicken Souvlaki Platter to fill up our hollow legs. There were 3 aromatic chicken skewers served with chunky cut chips, a small salad, pita bread and a homemade Greek pesto.

We were finally feeling full after all these dishes and our common senses kicked in and forbid us to peek the dessert menu. It was definitely a 'our eyes bigger than our stomach' moment.

The Darling Harbour water views is just behind the restaurant and we could not ask for a more pleasant weekend lunch venue.
