Amazed how the staff can retain such a high quality of food and responsive service in such a busy buzzing setting. Upstairs was much better in terms of noise level than our previous experience down stairs - however, a great experience, regardless of where we sat.

Stalactites has been one of my favorite restaurants but due to the space and busyness of the resto, we were not able to get the service we want. Our family dined few days ago and so disappointing we asked 2 servers to provide more drinking glasses. We finished our food but no glasses were provided. We are 11 (9 adults, 2 kids) and we got 3 glasses only. We ended up sharing glasses and some of us waited till we got home to drink some water. It would be better to have more servers assigned to see what’s missing or needed per table. We are having second thoughts of coming back to this restaurant. The lady who welcomed us looked very tired and and not too friendly at all. Service can be improved.

Very disappointing. I was entertaining a party of visitors from interstate and overseas. One member was a vegetarian. The waiter had no clue about a vegetarian banquet, so our guest ordered a platter. The rest of us ordered meat banquets. The dips were a small plate with a spoon each of 4 dips - barely enough for 1, let alone 5. One small slice of saganaki to go 5 ways. The calamari was nice, but a small serve. Then the meat arrived - a large platter - too much meat and not enough dips, dolmadakia, and saganaki. Not worth $55 The vegetarian platter was m a only potatoes and a bit of soggy spanokopita. Pathetic. The service was slow, and the w waiter was surly. It seems Stalactites is trading on its 'iconic reputation. Never again!

Pita bread should be traditional pita bread considering it is a greek restaurant especially when being served with dips. Love the atmosphere but drinks pricing is way overpriced. Food is beautiful.

Great food and great value for money. The only issue was the tables were super cramped upstairs which made the ambience less appealing.

Had a fantastic meal and worked very well to cater for my large group. We had around 20 people and were split across two tables in the upstairs area. It still worked well and the food came out steadily and in huge amount. great feed and atmosphere.

The food is great, perfect for those who love meats. Do try their "today special" menu.

The food was good and there was plenty of it, although it took over an hour for the first plates to come out while tables around us were being served first despite coming in after our booking

Fabulous food and service. Great value. Whilst it may be noisy, you can't control this when you have a full restaurant of people enjoying themselves!
