Having been to quite a few Greek restaurants too that are just fantastic, I know when something isn't that good, which is unfortunately what Ostratos is...
I had high hopes as a few people I asked about the place said it was fantastic. So we headed out last Friday for some Greek!
Taramasalata is one of my favourite dips, well probably my favourite. Frankie has tried to make it before and it didn't turn out as expected, so I definitely like to order it at Greek places, cause it is always excellent. Here it is not. It had a really strange taste to it, like a lime essence. It just tasted bad. The bread was really nice though. Maybe their other dips are better...
Taramasalata - $5
It wasn't cheap either for the amount we got. It came out in a small glass petrie dish. Luckily it wasn't that nice, otherwise I would have felt ripped off!
There was a meat platter on offer for $79, which I thought was a little steep, but it came with Greek salad and chips, so we decided to give it a go.
It wasn't bad, it just wasn't good. The meat felt like it had been cooked already and then just heated up. The salad was really good though and the chips were some of the best chips I have had.
