Review of The Apollo
Jonathan Barthelmess formerly of Manly’s Pavilion Restaurant and Longrain’s Sam Christie have teamed up to open Australian Greek restaurant, The Apollo.
Housed in an art deco building in trendy Potts Point, The Apollo is a bustling, minimalist space, which pays homage to the Greek landscape, with a somewhat rustic interior, featuring unfinished concrete and marble in subdued grey tones. Making the most of the arched windows, but with virtually no artwork hanging on the walls, and little colour, you may expect the restaurant to feel cold, yet somehow, even without the usual adornments, the warmth of The Apollo shines through.
Following the Greek tradition, the food at The Apollo is designed to be shared. We recommend dining on ‘The Full Greek’, their banquet option. If you really want to go all out, why not add ouzo to that?!
We love their Chefs Table. Part family dining table, part kitchen and part pantry, dining at The Chefs table provides the perfect vantage point to learn a thing or two about the inside workings of a restaurant kitchen. The table comfortably sits up to 12 people. Great for a function or special occasion, but be aware minimum spends and room hire applies.
