3 Olives

Greek in Newtown & the Inner West

There's something very life-affirming about a good Greek restaurant, and this family-run taverna ticks all the boxes. The decor is restrained, with olive-coloured walls, but there's nothing restrained about the portions or aromas: mounds of perfectly textured BBQ octopus, big chunks of melt-in-the-mouth lamb kleftiko, warm flatbread, hearty meatballs and moreish olives. It's an excellent celebration of traditional eating.
