One of my absolute favorites on the island. Everything is simply perfect: the food, the staff, the decor... they all make you feel at home.
Our server Yvonne was wonderful! Please tell her she did an exceptional job in recommendation of food, especially the portion sizes and we had a great time celebrating my parent’s wedding anniversary. Thanks for the wonderful surprise!
Amazing place, will definitely go again. Good ambiance and food!
Good food, good environment and good services. Will definitely go back again.
The staff were all pleasant and respectful. Everyone of them had smiles on their faces, it was a pleasant sight. The food were yummy, i loved their signature salad and their plate of lamb chops ! i had another plate of 4 lamb chops after trying it in the meat platter we ordered. the sparkling wine in a glass i ordered, they were generous with the amount and it was really sparkling and not about-to-die-out-gas. I reserved a table about 2 weeks ago and stated that it's my birthday and the staff said that there's a free desert. Who knew, they surprised me with a yummy peanut desert i forgot the name, with a candle ! the staff started singing the birthday song for me while walking towards me ! i was surprised ! had a great time there. Absolutely recommend! x
The next time I need a holiday but can't leave SG, I'll come here! That's what I felt the minute I stepped into Balakaki! Food portions were really generous - 2 pax can easily share 1 main, in fact, we were so stuffed in the midst of the appetisers (we had the calamari & the oven baked vegetables) that we had to pack the mains home! Food was really delicious! Service was also very attentive & complimentary bread was provided whilst we were cracking our heads on the dishes to order! Pity that pets aren't allowed at the outdoor area - maybe Balakaki can reconsider? ;) The fact that the restaurant was full on a Tuesday evening speaks volumes!
We went to this restaurant on a recommendation that it is the best Greek in Singapore. Not sure I can confirm that (haven’t not eaten in all Greek eateries) but it was excellent. Service, food and ambiance all really very good and enjoyed by our party of seven. We opted for the dips to start - which are all home made and delicious followed by meat and fish platters to share which were very tasty and the restaurant kindly gave us cake to celebrate the birthday occasion. We wee asked to confirm our reservation and it was evident why as all tables were full for the time we were there. Excellent night. We will return!
Service was great. Sitting was great. Food was great.. even though my Spanish colleague didn’t rate the Octopus as high as some of us. He had tasted better. We ordered the meat platter for 2. But later the waitress came back, she said she ordered for 3 insisting we didn’t order enough. I assume we were charged more but it was way too much meat. We should have stayed with platter for 2. The portions were generous and enough for 6 pax. We had 3 appetizers with 3 portion of bread, 1 cheese dish, 1 octopus, 1 Greek salad, 1 Moussaka, 1 cheese fries and meat platter for 3. When we asked for the cheque, they offered us free dessert. Overall we all went home happy with a food coma.
We love the warm hospitality and attentiveness of the staff at the restaurant. We also felt very comfortable with the spacious, bright and lively ambience (especially with the live kitchen view). Best of all is its food - we ordered the Meat Platter for 4 to share, Grilled Jumbo Prawns (Garida), Grilled Octopus (Htapodi), Halloumi (Grilled cheese), Pita bread with Taramosalata dip, and end of our dinner with the Mediterranean desserts ~ Baklavas, Loukoumades, Giaourti and Pagoto Vanila. Adequate portion and yummilicious! It was our first visit, but we will surely return for more.
Had a excellent dinner. We had the beef meatballs ( which were tender, moist and tasty ), the grilled saganaki , tog with their Greek salad and shared the grilled octopus. We didn’t give up on dessert and had their most wonderful Greek yogurt ( so light and smooth ... yum!) with honey and walnuts. Reminds us of our Greek breakfasts on Mykonos... couldn’t get enough. My friend had the recommended Greek Genesis Merlot... which was smooth and totally enjoyable. We will be back Bakalaki, to try out the rest of the menu.
