As Greek As It Gets

Owner Stavros Vladislavich’s family restaurant As Greek As it Gets will make you feel welcome the moment you walk through the door of the Edwardian terrace house in which it is housed in Cullinan.  

For lovers of Greek food it’s well worth the outing from Johannesburg or Pretoria to this historic mining town and the opportunity to star in your own version of The Big Fat Greek Lunch or Dinner. The extensive menu includes spanakopita, souvlakia, meze platters, line fish, calamari, prawns, moussaka, keftedes, chicken, beef fillet, baklava plus a choice of three set menus perfect for groups. There’s traditional moussaka and a version for vegetarians with mushrooms, lentils and ginger and the baklava offerings include a version with cinnamon, orange and apricot. The restaurant is child-friendly and, as is the Greek custom, they’re fed first. The wine list is comprehensive, the cocktails delicious, and As Greek as it Gets never run out of ouzo.
