Located on the Richmond Hill on Swan St, Salona is one Melbourne’s most storied Greek restaurants.

Proudly and unreservedly greek, this restaurant has held a special place in the Melbourne food scene for more than 40 years. Every day, third generation owner Stavros Konis endeavours to keep his Grandfather’s original enterprise alive and thriving.

Inspired by regular trips back to Greece, the menu is a delicate mix of both the classic and modern flavours of Greek cuisine. In an effort to ensure the quality and freshness of the food, Salona aspires to source all of its ingredients from local organic farmers and outlets including many operating directly out of Richmond.

Mouthwatering aromas of staple Greek ingredients such as lemon, garlic, olive oil and lamb fill the restaurant. Like any good Greek restaurant, the menu features a wide selection of dishes designed to share.

Beyond their high quality takes on the classics of Greek cuisine, they serve a number of special dishes including a slow roasted lamb dish, Cypriot pork belly, chargrilled smoked salmon and much more.

Salona also has a secret bar upstairs, based on the very bars you might find on the Greek islands, an environment full of energy, music and great cocktails. This bar is where, according to the staff, some serious fun happens!

If you are looking for a fun, authentic and delicious experience all in one, this historic Greek restaurant is a must visit. Salona is located at 260A Swan St, Richmond.
