George's Greek Tavern
Recently, George and his father Nick took over the management of the iconic, Melbourne Greek Restaurant – George’s Greek Tavern. This is a big and sentimental move for Nick who is cherishing working amongst family doing what he loves and excels at. Nicks restaurant career started in Europe and his talent has seen him very quickly hired to work in many of Europe’s finest restaurants. There, he picked up masterful cooking techniques working amongst some of Europe's best master chefs. Whilst the concept and cuisine at the restaurant still remain very much traditional Greek, you will notice many major improvements that the new management have undertaken. The interior at George’s Greek Tavern is totally revamped. Modern, but still very much Greek in character – neutral colours with splashes of blue; cathedral glass ceilings; fresh dips, fish and salads on display and that characteristic, char-grill lamb on the charcoal spit. The warmth, the personable approach to hosting, and the true intent of giving every patron a truly Greek dining experience is more akin to visiting a Greek family at home where the cooking skills are masterful. This is what you must do when you decide to book George’s Greek Tavern in Malvern. Leave behind all your past restaurant dining experiences. Be prepared to be hosted in a home, family-like environment but, with the essential professionalism omni-present. Functions and Events George's can cater for up to 130 seated guests for your function and around 150 for a cocktail function.

To quote one of our bloggers HenryNSW “Wonder where the local French go for a taste of home? Wonder no more”. A La Bouffe is where you will experience true French hospitality.

That is what you will experience at A La Bouffe – an informal, friendly and delicious experience. No pretensions, just good friendly service and delicious food. When French visitors are feeling home sick for some Cream Brulée or Clafoutis (traditional sour cherry pudding) this is where they visit. Jacky Frenot and Gabrielle Dewan, owners of A La Bouffe Bar & Bistro invite you to come to our little corner of France in the middle of Prahran and South Yarra shopping precinct and indulge your senses with our extensive range of popular traditional French dishes and contemporary style dishes as specials. Try our Seafood Millefeuille, puff pastry with mussels, scallops and prawns in seafood bisque.

There is an extensive wine list featuring French and Australian wines, aperitifs and beers. We are across the road from the Como Palace Cinema and we are open to late. So after the film, finish off a perfect evening with a glass of wine or champagne, or a coffee and one of A La Bouffe’s signature desserts.
