Food, ambience and service all great! Really needs a bar though! We were there for drinks at 8pm but sadly had to give the business to another bar down the road and then came back for dinner at 9pm. Will definitely be back even if we cannot have a drink before dinner!
The food was amazing, fresh. Would definitely go back soon!
Made reservation at 6pm. Was already half full when i reached. Excellent service. Awesome food. Very good vibes. Was a pleasant experience. Portions can be big and its good for groups. Looking forward to my next trip. Only concern could be the attitude of some staff. They were not very friendly and they looked not so forthcoming. Only some portayed that manner. True greek dining experience should be very service- oriented and not having to see sulky expressions. Made us feel bit awkward.
Fantastic food, felt like I was back in Greece. Only thing I would note that at points it was very hard to talk over the table as the music was quiet loud. Overall though we had a lovely time.
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.
Food was good and service was wonderful. The duty manager knew her stuff and made very good recommendations for our party of 6. We were also treated to dessert on the house which was fabulous :) Additionally, unlike most places that politely chase out when they are ready to close, Bakalaki didn’t. I was quite surprised and we really appreciate that. It was a kinda farewell dinner for one of our friends and it was awesome that we had the extra time. Thank you! We will definitely be back. Continue the good work.
