The atmosphere and service are class one. The food was amazing from the meze to the desserts; presented beautifully, full of flavours, traditional with a twist. A little pricey.

Great authentic Greek food and nice service.
The Spanikopita is the best, made to order and traditional

This restaurant really puzzles us. It looks nice, the food is good quality, but the service is really poor. We've now eaten at Ble twice and both times had the same waiter who had a grumpy attitude and poor skills. The last time, we were seated outside and were not offered table water top up or asked if we'd like more beverages once during the entire 2 hours. He simply didn't both visiting our table. The serving sizes of the meat dishes also seem to be a lot smaller now than what they were in June 2018. We wanted to really like this place but don't think we'll return.

Never received my starter husband had eaten his. Then a dish we hadn’t ordered arrived. Another dish was just plonked in the table no explanation to what it was. Then another dish then my starter. No apology. Only thing good was the Greek salad. Pot second visit & last

For a hatted restaurant we were quite underwhelmed. The restaurant was also absolutely packed, to the point we had to get diners to stand up just so we could squeeze past them to exit.

Overall a great experience. The food was exceptional and tasty with very large portions. It seems lots of effort goes into the food. The only real disappointment was the loukoumades, which had figs inside that were soggy and without flavor. It seemed on the first bite that they were undercooked. It really shouldn't be overlooked when the food is of that quality.

Delicious food. We couldn’t decide on what to have so we let the waiter choose for us and it was all amazing. Great service with a smile and lovely Greek wine. Beautifully styled restaurant, nice decor. Overall a wonderful dining experience.

The restaurant is like a cafe but upmarket fine dining prices.. No air conditioning.. Sun was beating into restaurant which made it even hotter.. Licensed only .. Service was slow.. Appear to be trying to be fine dining without the fine dining inclusions..

Food great. Staff had no idea about the menu and there was confusion created as we chose what we thought was a fixed tasting menu at $110 per head but it turned out to be an a la carte 3 course menu. We were given a free glass of bubbles as an apology and another staff member better explained the menu for us so that we did chose a tasting menu with wines to match $89 per head. The wines consisted of a glass of white and a glass of red costing $50+ per head which was firstly too dear and secondly not exactly what I would describe as matched wines. Recently dined at Quay with their matching wines being a glass with each different course which is what I would expect.
However I would return and make my own food choices next time. The food was delicious and innovative and it is great to have a hatted restaurant in Southern Sydney. With better staff training this could be a fantastic venue! I wish them well.

We enjoyed most of our meal but had 2 orders that were burnt and did not feel we could mention this to the waiter as he was not very accommodating on any of our requests. We also ordered a vegan meal when we ordered our entrees and it arrived after we have received our mains

Overall I found the food to be of high quality and wanting more. As if your yiayia made it. They also had a drinks menu. The service was friendly and of the standard of any fine restaurant.

Great restaurant but the following areas need to be improved to retain the 1 hat. Given that Apollo also have a hat, it’s hard to compare the two restaurants at the moment and group them in the same category:

- too noisy (need to add in soft furnishings).
- tables are too small and don’t fit food.
- understaffed on the floor.

The food was good. We could have ordered better. We were squashed in right next to toilets. Not great. Too many large tables groups very noisy. Service was great. Will try again hope to get better seats

I had heard so many excellent reviews since Ble started and although I tried to book in a few times, it was always full. Finally went there this week. It was quiet and not at all busy. We were greeted and had a really good waiter. The starters were lovely, we had the hummus , the cheese pie and a couple of other items which were delicious. The mains arrived and sadly the lamb was over cooked and the meat pie was chewy. Dessert was moorish .
I’d go back to give other things a try when in the area .

Has Friday night dinner with a friend and the food was amazing and top class service as well.
Our mains included the lamb shoulder and it was so tender and the seafood stew was equally impressive.
A nice Greek red wine was had but no wine under about $50 which I thought was expense and no BYO.
The price was at the top range but so was the evening. Recommended.

Very expensive & there really wasn’t much in terms of classic Greek meals. Restaurant is very cramped & noisy. Our mains were small & very saucy without any bread or pita or anything to ‘sop’ up the sauce with. It was odd.

We were very happy with our meals, we did have a bit of a hiccup to start as one dish was not up to scratch however this was quickly addressed and removed from our bill. The wait staff were very pleasant. Overall we are very happy and look forward to going again.

I would definitely return to Ble Kouzina as the food was very tasty, had lovely ambience and the service of the waiter was excellent! They can improve on the taste of the olive bread rolls and on the price @$4 per roll!

Food was great, but the wine was very expensive - perhaps a few cheaper wines also should be on the list. $13 for a glass of wine in Ramsgate is a bit up there- and bottles are cheapest $49. With the tile floor its a bit noisy too - but overall I will still go back as its local
