Very good food overall, although a bit on the small side. Nothing super-exciting except for the Loukamades, which is a dish of Greek donuts filled with Nutella, Honey and Hazelnuts. Talk about heaven!

Came here for a midweek dinner before a show nearby. Nice atmosphere although quite noisy, busy staff that weren't especially attentive, average food, nothing to write home about. Their house-made soft drinks were delicious though. Too expensive for the food that was served.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Halal should be banned in Australia. Its barbaric and has no place in a civilised society.

Hi, I have no doubt that they could cater for 17, but I suggest you will need to pre-book. I doubt you could walk in and expect seating for that number of people. Give it a go you will love it!
