I was disappointed when the local Greek restaurant in Manly shut down. Admittedly it did not have an amazing reputation, but I love a Greek meal now and again.
Yet during a chance amble along North Steyne a few months back I noticed new Greek restaurant Kazzi Beach pop up.
Within weeks, the tables were packed out and teeming with hungry punters suggesting that this establishment had already gained popularity.
With that in mind, armed with my pen and paper and a growling mid morning stomach I had to discover what all the fuss was about.
With its quintessentially Greek interiors, white washed walls with pink Bougainvillea and Santorini style furnishings, simply sitting at a table took me back to those hedonistic days spent on Greek Islands as a young traveller.
Smells of freshly fried seafood and grilled meats fill the air while the sounds of Greek music hums in the background.
We opted for a typical Greek brunch eggs saganaki which came with a secret sauce created by Greek owner Peter Papas (pictured above), plus fig and mascarpone on rye toast drizzled with honey and fresh thyme.
The taste of both dishes was sensational. The quality of ingredients combined with traditional Greek flavours was an absolute winner and after a couple of bites of each meal, it was easy to see why the place so quickly gained popularity.
With affordable prices you can enjoy a tasty meal here at $25 a head for brunch (including coffee) or $30-50 a head for dinner, making it a great place for hungry families looking for a quality eat without breaking the bank.
