'Bahari' is the Greek word for 'Spice' or 'All Spice'...

Philip Vakos' latest venture 'Bahari' showcases his quality interpretations of classic Greek dishes and desserts, as well as his flair for balancing spices and flavours.

Bahari has now been open for over a year and in this time Philip, along with fiancé Heleena Alatsas and good friend Stell Kaponas, have made this little space a sought after 'foodie' destination in Melbourne. 

This cosy and intimate space enables Philip the freedom to really express his palate, by constantly reinventing the way traditional Greek food is enjoyed by his guests; whilst still paying respect to its origins.

Greek food traditionally is enjoyed ‘together’ with family and friends. As such, ‘Bahari’ embodies this philosophy and presents a shared menu; encouraging people to try an assortment of share-plates throughout their dining experience.

With an ever changing  'specials' menu -  guests can enjoy trying something a little different each time they visit.

'Bahari' takes reservations, provides take home meals and event catering, and also plays host to Philip's cooking Master-Classes.
